loop back advertisements

why do we advertise  loopback in interface on router for EIGRP? It make sense to advertise routers network with EIGRP, but why loopback0? 


  • 1. could be needed to connect to router from remote location. loopback is always up up, never down. advertise it and u will be able to connect to router.

    2. just to have  some networks in home lab. i.e., to practice summarization, add 10-20 loopbacks and advertise them thruough network
