EIGRP Filtering with Route Maps

Task:

  • Configure R4 as follows:
    • Loopback1 as 160.1.4.4/32 and redistribute it into EIGRP with the tag value of 4.
    • Loopback2 as 170.1.4.4/32 and redistribute it into EIGRP.

The solution redistribute these ip addresses with the statements:

router eigrp 100
 redistribute connected metric 100000 100 255 1 1500 route-map CONNECTED_TO_EIGRP
<br />
Is it necessary to specify the metric?
in other words, can I acheive the same thing by using this statement instead?
router eigrp 100
 redistribute connected route-map CONNECTED_TO_EIGRP
Someone please clarify,
Thanks,

    This is a great way of thinking. You are going past just copying the solution.

    Try it. Experiment with it.  Experience it. Don't just believe what someone tells you. 

    Let us know the result.  This is also a great way to learn shortcuts (or unlearn them).

  • When you redistribute connected or static routes into distance vector protocols , metric is optional , if not specified it is self-derived from the connected interface of the router( hop-count of 1 for RIP and delay with min bandwidth for EIGRP).
