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. (For general information on route policy and route maps, see Route Policy. For examples of using route maps in route redistribution, see Using route policy in route redistribution.)


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.


[no] router rip redistribute [connected | static | ospf] [route-map name]

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


Redistribute from manually configured routes.


Redistribute from locally connected networks.


Redistribute from OSPF routes.

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)# redistribute ospf
switch(rip)# write memory
