EIGRP OSPF Redistribution Sim

January 8th, 2015 in Lab Sim, LabSim Go to comments



Answer and Explanation:

First we need to find out 5 parameters (Bandwidth, Delay, Reliability, Load, MTU) of the s0/0/0 interface (the interface of R2 connected to R4) for redistribution :

R2#show interface s0/0/0

Write down these 5 parameters, notice that we have to divide the Delay by 10 because the metric unit is in tens of microsecond. For example, we get Bandwidth=1544 Kbit, Delay=20000 us, Reliability=255, Load=1, MTU=1500 bytes then we would redistribute as follows:

R2#config terminal
R2(config)# router ospf 1
redistribute eigrp 100 metric-type 1 subnets
R2(config-router)#router eigrp 100
R2(config-router)#redistribute ospf 1 metric 1544 2000 255 1 1500

(Notice: In fact, these parameters are just used for reference and we can use other parameters with no problem. Also, a candidate said that the simulator didn’t accept the Bandwidth of 1544; in that case, we can use a lower value, like 128.

If the delay is 20000us then we need to divide it by 10, that is 20000 / 10 = 2000)

Note: “usec” here does not mean microsecond (which is 1/1000 milliseconds) but means millisecond. In short usec = msec. I don’t know why they use the word “usec” here but just think it is “msec” (According to this link: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/tech/tk365/technologies_white_paper09186a0080094cb7.shtml#eigrpmetrics: “The delay as shown in the show ip eigrp topology or show interface commands is in microseconds”)

For R3 we use the show interface fa0/0 to get 5 parameters too

R3#show interface fa0/0

For example we get Bandwidth=100000 Kbit, Delay=1000 us, Reliability=255, Load=1, MTU=1500 bytes

R3#config terminal
router ospf 1
redistribute eigrp 100 metric-type 1 subnets
router eigrp 100
redistribute ospf 1 metric 100000 100 255 1 1500

Finally you should try to “show ip route” to see the network (the network behind R4) in the routing table of R1 and make a ping from R1 to this network.

Note: If the link between R2 and R3 is FastEthernet link, we must put the command below under EIGRP process to make traffic from R1 to go through R3 (R1 -> R2 -> R3 -> R4), which is better than R1 -> R2 -> R4.

R2(config-router)# distance eigrp 90 105

This command sets the Administrative Distance of all EIGRP internal routes to 90 and all EIGRP external routes to 105, which is smaller than the Administrative Distance of OSPF (110) -> the link between R2 & R3 will be preferred to the serial link between R2 & R4.

A reader on our site has a closer explanation for the “distance eigrp 90 105” command so we quote it here for your reference:

The “distance” refers to the administrative distance of the routes provided by a given routing process. By default, internal (which means non-redistributed) EIGRP routes are given an administrative distance of 90 while external (redistributed from another routing process) EIGRP routes are given an administrative distance of 170. The default administrative distance of OSPF is 110. The administrative distance measures the “distance from the truth” and tells the router which routes are more trustworthy. Lower administrative distance = more trustworthy. For this reason, connected routes have an administrative distance of 0. They are the MOST TRUSTWORTHY, because they are physically connected to the router. When making a decision about which route to install in the routing table, the router looks at administrative distance first. The metric (or cost) is only considered if two routes have the same administrative distance.

In this case, R2 will learn about R4’s loopback network from both R4 and R3. The route from R4 will be in OSPF (admin distance of 110) because R2 is also running OSPF while the route from R3 will be an external EIGRP route (administrative distance of 170 by default). Since the OSPF route has a lower administrative distance, it will get placed in R2’s routing table and the R3-provided route will be ignored. This is not optimal, since the path through R3 is a faster, more reliable path. To fix this, we change the administrative distance of external EIGRP routes at R2 by using the “distance eigrp 90 105” command. This sets the administrative distance of internal EIGRP routes to the default of 90 and changes the administrative distance of external EIGRP routes to 105 (less than that of OSPF routes). Now, when R2 learns of the loopback network from R4 and R3, it will install the now lower administrative distance external EIGRP route from R3 and our traffic from R1 will take the faster path.

Note: Please check the OSPF process numbers first before typing these commands.

If you want to have a closer look at this sim and understand more about the “distance eigrp” command, please read my OSPF EIGRP Redistribute Lab in GNS3.

    Hi NK2

    Congratss for your cisco route exam.

    I am taking the exam on 11th Jan..

    If I could get the stuff on ictpro08 at hotmail dot com that would be much appreciated…

    Thanks in advance.

    i downloaded the lab from tut and ran in my gns3. It looks like the answer does not correspond to the lab because IEGRP is already redistributed into OSPF. We need to do redistribution the other way. From OSPF into EIGRP. Anyone noticed that the answer is wrong ?
    I might miss the explanation in the thread but really don’t want to read 30 pages of posts.

    Can you guys check the lab?

    @ ADMIN – whoever that is.
    I dont think OSPF EIGRP redistribution lab is complete. i think there needs to be a default route in R1 for it to ping R4 loopback address.

    i just ran files, i had to redistribute in R2 & R3. only issue I found is mentioned above.

    In this Redistribution lab, There is no need to use match and set tag values for redistribution EIGRP to OSPF and OSPF to EIGRP?

    Refer to the following configuration command.
    router(config)# ip nat inside source static tcp 8080 80
    Which statement about the command is true?

    A. Any packet that is received in the inside interface with a source IP port address of is translated to
    B. Any packet that is received in the inside interface with a source IP port address of is translated to
    C. The router accepts only a TCP connection from port 8080 and port 80 on IP address
    D. Any packet that is received in the inside interface with a source IP address of
    is redirected to port 8080 or port 80.

    here in tagwa dump it say the correct answer is a but i think it b , can any one advice

  16. Malak
    January 17th, 2017

    I think this command parameters is not correct:
    R3(config-router)#redistribute ospf 1 metric 10000 100 255 1 1500

    because fast ethernet BW is 100,000 and its bandwidth is 100 witch become 10 after divided it by 10
    on other-hand I don’t think its right to change AD of EIGRP where this case a loop issue
    the rule is to make sure that AD of internal Routing AD of external EIGRP (105)

  17. Malak
    January 17th, 2017

    the rule is to make sure that AD of internal Routing less than external Routing…
    AD of internal OSPF (110) bigger than AD of external EIGRP (105), this may cause a loop

    Hi guys, I have passed my ccnp routing exam yesterday at (23/1/2017) with score (973), actually the dumps of 149q and 41q tagwa is still valid.
    Most the question came from the 41q tagwa, so you have to study it very well,
    BUT it important to study also the dump of 183q/32q/8q because it contain a lot of questions that you will not find them in both 149q and tagwa 41q dumps, in my exam none of new questions of 183q/32q/8q came, but I recommended to studied any way
    The sim in my exam:
    -ospf eigrp redistribution
    -ospf evaluation
    -ospfv3 with virtual-link
    -ospf sim
    The drag and drop:
    -CHAP drag (in tagwa 41q)

    Important notes about the sims:
    Regarding to sims , you should be careful because you might find that there some minor changes in the sims (like ip addess, subnets , ospf process numbers , eigrp autonomous number and so on) so check with show run command if that possible, before starting the configuration to not rush to configure blindly .
    In my exam, there was some little change in ospf evaluation, I mentioning below the question with changed answer:
    The question:
    Which of the following statements is true about the serial links that terminate in R3?
    A. The R1-R3 link needs the neighbor command for the adjacency to stay up
    B. The R2-R3 link OSPF timer values are 30, 120, 120
    C. The R1-R3 link OSPF timer values should be 10,40,40
    D. R3 is responsible for flooding LSUs to all the routers on the network.
    In dumps sim you will find that the correct answer is B, but in my exam that was not true, because I found that the exam changed the link R2-R3 timers to 10,40,40 and it was point-to-point link.
    also I found The link R1-R3 timer was 30,120,120 non-broad cast link, so both of the answers A , B are wrong .
    Also D was wrong because, R3 was not the DR in all the links,
    The right answer was A, because the link R1-R3 is non-broad-cast link so neighborship should be configured manually.
    So it is important to be carful .

    Important notes about tagwa 41q dump:
    It is important to mention that in tagwa 41q dump there some questions with wrong answers, here below I mentioned the question with the wrong answers:
    Question 2
    Refer to the following configuration command.
    router(config)# ip nat inside source static tcp 8080 80
    Which statement about the command is true?
    A. Any packet that is received in the inside interface with a source IP port address of is translated to
    B. Any packet that is received in the inside interface with a source IP port address of is translated to
    C. The router accepts only a TCP connection from port 8080 and port 80 on IP address
    D. Any packet that is received in the inside interface with a source IP address of
    is redirected to port 8080 or port 80.
    Tagawa say the right answer is A , but that wrong the right answer is B (this question came in my exam)

    Question 28
    A network engineer wants to ensure an optimal end-to-end delay bandwidth product. The delay is
    less than 64 KB. Which TCP feature ensures steady state throughput?
    A. Window scaling
    B. Network buffers
    C. Round-trip timers
    D. TCP acknowledgments
    Also that wrong the right answer is B
    For the dumps, you can send me at ahmedrofaii at gmail dot com , I will be glad to send them to you freely , for routing dumps and for switching , tshoot dumps
    I wish for you good luck in your exam 

    here i sent in link below all the dumps for the three exams
    regrading the switching exam you can depend on 191q dump
    regarding to routing exam, you will find the 149q + 41q dump , also you will find the 183q\32q\8q dump you have to study them all
    regrading to tshoot exam you will find pass4sure dump , beside the dump you have to depend on networktut site for the tshoot

    ​good luck????????

    For example for the Ospe Evaluation the timers between R3 & R2 and R3 & R1, when you use the command for check the timers, there’s no one answer to correspond with the true timers, questions about ip sla, questions about phases of autentications, I know in some blugs I was reading that they added new questions, does some one have the new pool (New Questions) and how many new questions are?

    i think cisco is running interactive tests at this point sounds like it to me with all these peeps saying we got newer questions years ago the thing wouldnt change in 3-4 years;again I think its from unskilled canidates actually making it thru an interview and cannot do the work reqiured hence getting the hiring manager in trouble now manager sees certs as an ass wipe when no tp is available. Another thing they can do is make the interview more technical mine have never been hard OSI,ports numbers? really. They should set u down in a room and give u tasks to do in gns3 that reflect what an NP should know. done u either do the task or not dont know why they dont employ this exercise it would get rid of all the real cheaters that troll this site.
