IP Routing Explained

Hello CJ

By default, static routes are relevant only to the local router. Even if you have a dynamic routing protocol enabled on the device, it will not automatically advertise such routes. However, you can redistribute a static route into a dynamic routing protocol such that it advertises them.

This can be done using the redistribute static command within the configuration of the routing protocol. For example,

Router(config)#router eigrp 1
Router(config-router)#redistribute static

This command will take any configured static routes on the local router and will redistribute them into the EIGRP routing protocol, such that they will be advertised throughout the EIGRP domain. For more information on redistribution, take a look at this lesson:

I hope this has been helpful!
