EIGRP: Named mode, a whole new type of EIGRP mode, with all new configurations and explanations including “address-family”s!

We will stick with the same old Topology to finish EIGRP review off, I have one more article after this, then I really need to double time some other topics before exam day to freshen up the ol' steel trap! Now a couple of things that separates "Original mode" from "Named mode" EIGRP is: It … Continue reading EIGRP: Named mode, a whole new type of EIGRP mode, with all new configurations and explanations including “address-family”s!

EIGRP: How EIGRP forms relationships over different types of WAN’s (We are getting close to done with EIGRP review)!

Have a few more deep dive sort of Material / Review for EIGRP, and one of them I wanted to be clear on for the exam and out in the wild, is how EIGRP forms relationships over the WAN and why it's important to know what type of WAN is connecting the neighbors. EIGRP over … Continue reading EIGRP: How EIGRP forms relationships over different types of WAN’s (We are getting close to done with EIGRP review)!

EIGRP: Static Neighbors discussion and configuration, then some discussion and configuration of the EIGRP RID (and what its used for) !

Static neighbor discussion, configuration, and why you may not want to deploy this   Static neighbors have been used in every one of my OSPF labs that include the NBMA, for the same reason you might use configure static EIGRP neighbors, and that's because the Layer 2 Media doesn't allow the Adjacencies to form without … Continue reading EIGRP: Static Neighbors discussion and configuration, then some discussion and configuration of the EIGRP RID (and what its used for) !

EIGRP: DEEP Dive into Prefix-List configurations, Access-list vs Prefix-list, using Prefix-Lists to Filter EIGRP routes with Distribute-Lists!

Only the NBMA and Ethernet segments will be used for quick demonstrations and clarity, unless R4 or R5 is needed for demonstration. Now the idea of a Prefix-List in comparison to an Access-List may be hard to follow, but I will try to explain it. An Access-List at its most specific (Extended) matches only on … Continue reading EIGRP: DEEP Dive into Prefix-List configurations, Access-list vs Prefix-list, using Prefix-Lists to Filter EIGRP routes with Distribute-Lists!

EIGRP: DEEP Dive into Route Filtering with Distribute-Lists using ACL’s – Important notes on using Extended ACL’s for exam day!

Only the NBMA and Ethernet segments will be used for quick demonstrations and clarity, unless R4 or R5 is needed for demonstration. The first mechanism specifically for EIGRP to filter EIGRP learned routes is by distribute lists, which have a similar syntax structure and function in ways as an offset-list, in the ways that: It … Continue reading EIGRP: DEEP Dive into Route Filtering with Distribute-Lists using ACL’s – Important notes on using Extended ACL’s for exam day!

EIGRP – IMPORTANT INFO FOR EXAM DAY on K weights and Redistribution, and using an offset-list for Metric tuning!

Only the NBMA and Ethernet segments will be used for quick demonstrations and clarity, unless R4 or R5 is needed for demonstration. There are two different ways to change the Metric for EIGRP, one of those is by changing the "bandwidth" or "delay" on the interface, or by using an offset list. Changing the Metric … Continue reading EIGRP – IMPORTANT INFO FOR EXAM DAY on K weights and Redistribution, and using an offset-list for Metric tuning!

EIGRP Fundamentals / Advanced in a can

I've integrated Chris Bryant's ROUTE book on kindle into my study, as it follows the video series perfectly, and decided to go over the EIGRP section while doing the OSPF videos just to re-cover the topics, which made realize how much important information I did not post here. So this will be bullet points of … Continue reading EIGRP Fundamentals / Advanced in a can
