Enabling RIP route redistribution

The basic form of the redistribute command redistributes all routes of the selected type. For finer control over route selection and modification of route properties, you can specify the route-map parameter and the name of a route map.


Do not enable redistribution until you have configured the redistribution filters. Otherwise, the network might become overloaded with routes that you did not intend to redistribute.


router rip redistribute {<connected | static>} [route-map < name >]
no router rip redistribute {<connected | static>} [route-map < name >]

Enables redistribution of the specified route type to the RIP domain.


Redistribute from manually configured routes.


Redistribute from locally connected networks.

route-map <name>

Optionally specify the name of a route map to apply during redistribution.

The no form of the command disables redistribution for the specified route type.


To enable redistribution of all connected, static, and OSPF routes into RIP, enter the following commands.

switch(config)# router rip
switch(rip)# redistribute connected
switch(rip)# redistribute static
switch(rip)# write memory
