OSPF <-> RIP

This is an simple example of redistributing ospf to rip and vica versa.

A Borderrouter having two interfaces. One Interface in the OSPF area 0 and one interface in the RIP area.

interface Ethernet0
ip address 192.168.3.2 255.255.255.0
!
interface Serial1
ip address 192.168.4.1 255.255.255.0
!

router ospf 1
log-adjacency-changes
redistribute rip
network 192.168.3.0 0.0.0.255 area 0
default-metric 64000
!
router rip
redistribute ospf 1
network 192.168.4.0
default-metric 4

Configuring Routing from ospf to rip is quite easy. Just use the „rediribute rip“ command. And maybe the „default-metric“ command.

With the redistribution from ospf to rip you have use also a default-metric. I took 4.

And then you will see, that like a magic update, the routes appear under both routing areas.
