EIGRP Configuration Lab in just few simple steps. This article is all about how easily we can configure EGRP on Cisco Router. To perform this lab we have used cisco packet tracer software here. As we know EIGRP is a Dynamic Routing Protocol and it’s work only for Interior gateway Routing protocol. Here in this lab we have taken two routers R1 and R2 and Total 3 Networks to understand EIGRP Configuration.

Step1: Assign ip addresses on Router Interfaces as well as PC’s as  mentioned in topology diagram.

eigrp configuration

Step 2: EIGRP configuration on R1:

r1(config)#router eigrp 1





Explanation of Above code: 

In router eigrp 1 “1” is the AS value or you can Autonomous system which will be same for all routers inside a company or controlled by a single company or single admin.


Step 3: EIGRP Configuration on R2:


r2(config)#router eigrp 1




Step 4: EIGRP Troubleshooting command.

Check Route on 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

D [90/30720] via, 00:02:02, FastEthernet0/1



Check Routing Protocol on R1 Router:


r1#show ip protocols

Routing Protocol is "eigrp 1 "

Outgoing update filter list for all interfaces is not set

Incoming update filter list for all interfaces is not set

Default networks flagged in outgoing updates

Default networks accepted from incoming updates

EIGRP metric weight K1=1, K2=0, K3=1, K4=0, K5=0

EIGRP maximum hopcount 100

EIGRP maximum metric variance 1

Redistributing: eigrp 1

Automatic network summarization is in effect

Automatic address summarization:

Maximum path: 4

Routing for Networks:

Routing Information Sources:

Gateway Distance Last Update 90 827659

Distance: internal 90 external 170
