Redistribution Between Two EIGRP Autonomous Systems

Hello experts,
I am trying to get EIGRP redistribution working between two organizations.  I set up the configuration as seen here but none of the routes from AS100 are being redistributed to AS104 & visa-versa.  Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

have you tried changing the metric?

so instead of having redistribute eigrp 100 metric 1 1 0 1 1 enter redistribute eigrp 100 metric 1 1 1 1 1.

The 0 you entered is for the value of reliability, though i have never tried entering 0 for any value before, I think it might be causing the issue.

I think you should add a secondary ip address between router interface, and assign to different AS, like this sample: - RTR1 ---------------------------- RTR2 -   Secondary                                  Secondary

router eigrp 104
redistribute eigrp 100
router eigrp 100

router eigrp 100
redistribute eigrp 104
router eigrp 104

There is no need for the secondary address as neighbors are only formed using the primary addresses, and data packets are sourced using the primary address. You only need to make sure that all networks that are required to communicate with eachother are correctly configured using the network command.

Also you are not required to enter the metric when redistributing eigrp into another eigrp process. This is mainly used when redistributing a different routing protocol into eigrp.

You could always use BGP between the two routers, use EIGRP as the iBGP. Quite a simple config

I will change the reliability metric to 1 & retest later this week.  I'll post my results then. Thanks.

I have not been able to reschedule a test with the other organization.  I will have to cancel this for now & re-submit if necessary.
