Eigrp metric - MTU value - Redistribution
i have read from a reliable source and tested myself that when redistributing Routes into eigrp and changing the MTU size, this does not effect the bandwidth calculation.
the reson stated was that the value you use in the redistribution command is the "actual" value of the MTU size.
i have tried this config which works fine
router eigrp 1
redistribute rip metric 1 1 255 1 1
my question is , when packets are sent from R3 to the redistributed networks advertised from R1.
do these packets need to have an MTU size of 1 ??,
would the eigrp peer R2 not accept packets with a larger MTU size ?
if the MTU is not taken into accout in the bandwidth calc , and its not utilised when sending packets between peers .
what on earth is it needed for ???
