Upgrading router for more networks

We are in the process of getting a new router to add one more ethernet network to it. Currently we have two networks  running with eigrp only . The new network that we need to add to our new router runs ospf. Can we run in the new router eigrp for one network and opsf for the other?

Yes, providing the router supports OSPF.  Many Cisco routers which support EIGRP don't support OSPF without an advanced routing license such as IP Services.
You can test the new router by entering into "config t" and see if when you run "router eigrp ?" or "router ospf ?" you get an error or if the router is asking for more information.

If you run two routing protocols, then you probably need to redistribute routes learned from one into another. If this is true, then see below for guidelines.


router ospf 1
network area 0
redistribute eigrp 1 metric 100 subnets

router eigrp 1
redistribute ospf 1
default-metric 10000 100 255 1 1500
no auto-summary
eigrp log-neighbor-changes

If you have more than one connection between the two networks via redistribute be careful with routing loops. You would need filters on the redistribution.
