I just finished watching a quick learning module from Cisco and they seem to be saying the neighbor table poplulates the topology table which then populates the route table.
My understanding is that the neighbor table does not even hold routes but just lists the neighbors and the status of the adjacency?
If two EIGRP routers are not neighbors then they don't exchange any routing information directly?
The topology tables holds all of the routes from the local router plus the routes advertised thru EIGRP from the directly connected neighbors? The possibilities, the feasible succesors and the successors?
How does the topology table get built? Network statements and redistribution of the routes from the local router and update packets from the directly connected neighbors?
Then the route table is populated with the best routes from the topology table?
