Route Redistribution configuration lab between RIP and OSPF Routing domain.This lab is to show route redistribution between RIP routing and OSPF Routing.So if you are preparing for ccnp certification then this tutorial is for you.I have mentioned step wise notes with proper documentation to configure Route Redistribution between RIP and OSPF routing protocol.

Redistribution is done when you want to take routes learn from one routing protocol and put them in another Routing protocol.

here in This Lab we are putting the RIP Route in to OSPF Route and OSPF route in to RIP Route.

Step 1:Configure IP Addresses on each Router.


Step 2: Configure RIP Routing on Router R1:

r1#config t

Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.

r1(config)#router rip

r1(config-router)#version 2





Step3: Configure RIP Routing and OSPF Routing on router R2:(R2 is distribution Router)
r2#config t
 Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.
 r2(config)#router rip
 r2(config-router)#version 2


r2(config)#router ospf 100

r2(config-router)#network area 0
Step 4: Configure OSPF Routing on Router r3:
r3(config)#router ospf 100

r3(config-router)#network area 0

r3(config-router)#network area 0


Step 5: Redistribute RIP Routes in to OSPF
r2(config)#router rip

r2(config-router)#redistribute ospf 100 metric 1

Step 6: Redistribute OSPF  Routes in to RIP

r2(config)#router ospf 100

r2(config-router)#redistribute rip metric 1
Step 7:Check configuration working or not using ping.

ping testing


FastEthernet0 Connection:(default port)

Link-local IPv6 Address.........: FE80::20A:41FF:FE75:7366

IP Address......................:

Subnet Mask.....................:

Default Gateway.................:



Pinging with 32 bytes of data:

Reply from bytes=32 time=2ms TTL=125

Reply from bytes=32 time=0ms TTL=125

Reply from bytes=32 time=0ms TTL=125

Reply from bytes=32 time=11ms TTL=125

Ping statistics for

Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),

Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:

Minimum = 0ms, Maximum = 11ms, Average = 3ms



Step 8:check routing table of router R1:
r1#show ip route

Codes: C - connected, S - static, I - IGRP, R - RIP, M - mobile, B - BGP

D - EIGRP, EX - EIGRP external, O - OSPF, IA - OSPF inter area

N1 - OSPF NSSA external type 1, N2 - OSPF NSSA external type 2

E1 - OSPF external type 1, E2 - OSPF external type 2, E - EGP

i - IS-IS, L1 - IS-IS level-1, L2 - IS-IS level-2, ia - IS-IS inter area

* - candidate default, U - per-user static route, o - ODR

P - periodic downloaded static route

Gateway of last resort is not set

C is directly connected, FastEthernet0/0

C is directly connected, FastEthernet0/1

R [120/1] via, 00:00:18, FastEthernet0/1

R [120/1] via, 00:00:18, FastEthernet0/1
