EIGRP Basics (Static EIGRP Neighbors)

With basic EIGRP configurations there shouldn’t be any issues with EIGRP configured routers to able to create neighborships between each other. At this point I’m not 100% sure why this is an option but it is.

Below is an example of how to configure it. (I created a new sub-interface Gi0/0.70 on R1 and Fa0/1.70 on R3 for this example, just to not mess with the the current setup I have on sub-interface 60).

*** Super important, the static neighbor configuration needs to be configured on both routers ***

Configuration:

Router1 –

Router1#config t
Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.
Router1(config)#router eigrp 1
Router1(config-router)#network 10.0.0.0
Router1(config-router)#neighbor 10.10.10.2 gig0/0.70

Router3 –

Router3#config t
Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.
Router3(config)#router eigrp 1
Router3(config-router)#network 10.0.0.0
Router3(config-router)#neighbor 10.10.10.1 fa 0/1.70

Verification:

Router3#show ip eigrp neighbors

Router3#show ip eigrp neighbors detail (will actually show that neighbor at 10.10.10.1 is a static neighbor)
