Originating a Default Route with EIGRP

To originate a default route with EIGRP, you can use the same method described in "Originating a Default Route with IGRP." Alternatively, you can configure 0.0.0.0 and redistribute it into EIGRP like this:

router eigrp 100 redistribute static network 172.18.0.0 default-metric 1544 2000 255 1 1500

ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 192.168.202.1 The command ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 192.168.202.1 creates a default route, with 192.168.202.1 as the gateway of last resort.

The command redistribute static redistributes 0.0.0.0 (and any other statics) into EIGRP so that it can be advertised to other routers.

The command default-metric 1544 2000 255 1 1500 defines the starting EIGRP metric for the static routes that are redistributed into EIGRP. In order, the elements of the metric are:

• Bandwidth—In kilobits per second.

• Reliability—A number from 0 to 255, where 255 is most reliable.

• Loading—A number from 0 to 255, where 255 is a fully loaded (100% saturated) link.

• MTU (Maximum Transmission Unit)—In bytes.
