    1.6 Redistribution - EIGRP connected into RIP

    On R4, the subnets on the EIGRP interfaces GigabitEthernet1.45 and GigabitEthernet1.46 can not be redidistributed in the OSPF process due to the lower amin distance. Therefore the solution shows how to add them in the routed map for the redistribution of connected subnets into OSPF. Nothing wrong here.

    On R5 we have a similar case with redistribution of EIGRP routes into RIP. The subnet on GigabitEthernet1.58 is imported through a network statement into EIGRP and then redistributed into RIP. I would have expected that this won't work since the admin distance of EIGRP is lower than RIP. I would have expected that I have to directly redistribute this connected interface in to RIP as well.

    According to the solution it works without and I can confirm but can't explain why. Any help? :)

    Re: 1.6 Redistribution - EIGRP connected into RIP

    when u redistribute rotues, all connected (and participating in routing) routes are redistributed automatically.

    since (connects R5 and R8) is participating in EIGRP, it will be redistributed by eigrp into rip domian.

    AD matters when router must choose a route and place it into routing table. route must be in routig table to be redistributed.

    You do need to be careful about the connected interfaces. For example, if you have a redistribute connected in OSPF with a route-map specifying a certain interface and then you have a task to mutually redistribute between EIGRP and OSPF on that router, the EIGRP interfaces won't get redistributed into OSPF unless you add them to the route-map.

    you are right; there is something going on with route-maps and redistribution.  ios bug?
