EIGRP CCNA 1

Scenario:

Tillywood is where all the famous blockbuster movies are created in Tilburg, The Netherlands. This year there is a convention and all big star actors will be there. Cisco is promoting the event and thus you are going to use EIGRP as the routing protocol of choice to get connectivity. Since you are close to passing your CCNA exam this should be no problem for you…get to work!

Goal:

  • All IPv4 addresses have been preconfigured for you.
  • Each router has a loopback0 interface.
  • Configure EIGRP AS 1 on the frame-relay network connecting router Bates, Bond and Corleone. Advertise the loopback0 interfaces.
  • You notice that router Bond and Corleone do not see each others loopback interfaces in the routing table. Configure router Bates to solve this.
  • Configure EIGRP AS 1 on both fastethernet links connecting router Bates and oHara.
  • Change the bandwidth on the fastethernet 1/0 interfaces so only fastethernet 0/0 is used for successor routes.
  • Configure EIGRP AS 1 on router Dobbs and Corleone.
  • Make sure you disable auto-summary for EIGRP AS 1.
  • At this point you should have full connectivity for all networks and loopback0 interfaces.
  • Create a summary on interface serial0/0 of router Dobbs so it advertises 5.5.0.0 /16 with an administrative distance of 85.
  • Change the EIGRP K-Values so only delay will be used as a metric.
  • Ensure router Bates can use the frame-relay network as a feasible successor route to network 4.4.4.0 /24.
  • Make sure you see this feasible successor route not only in the topology table but also in the routing table.
  • Enable authentication between router Dobbs and Corleone.  Use a keychain called “VAULT” and password “LABS”.

It took me 1000s of hours reading books and doing labs, making mistakes over and over again until I mastered all the protocols for CCNA.

Would you like to be a master of networking too? In a short time without having to read 900 page books or google the answers to your questions and browsing through forums?

I collected all my knowledge and created a single ebook for you that has everything you need to know to become a master of CCNA.

You will learn all the secrets about EIGRP, frame-relay, summarization, successors, feasible successors and more.

Does this sound interesting to you?

    @Adrian yes this is something I still have to fix. The PDF plugin is kinda buggy… :D

    @Sallie the frame relay switch in this topology is emulated, it’s not a Cisco router. If you download my topology than the serial links should be connected already, it should work right away.

    Can someone help me out for run this GNS3 Topology File in my GNS 3 which i have downloaded from the above link.
    Because when, i try to do that it is showing and prompt like:

    "Local IOS image /Data /IOS Images/c3640-jk903s-mz.124-16.bin
    cannot be found for hipervisor localhost:7200
    Please select an alternate image:
    127.0.0.1:D:\Networking\Emulator Software\IOS images\c3640-jk903s-mz.124-16a.image"

    then i click ok its prompting:

    open: permission denied.

    Any idea/sugession

    Hi Rene,

    Excellent lab. Thank you for the hard work you put into this. I had one question. For the step "Ensure router Bates can use the frame-relay network as a feasible successor route to network 4.4.4.0 /24." would it be simpler to increase the delay on S2/0.1 rather than decreasing the delay through the other path? This seemed to work for me.

    Thanks,

    Michael

    When completing the EIGRP CCNA 1 lab, the serial link between Dobbs and Corleone remain up/down. I assume that this is a bug in GNS3 – just wondered if anyone else has experienced this and, if so, did they manage to resolve the issue ? Reloaded devices/PC and recreated the serial link etc, to no avail.

    I tried a few IOS and chassis, it looks like GNS3 bug, which version are you using?

    I have two questions.

    Firstly, I gather I use the topology.net file and the final cfg from the other file.

    Lastly, I can’t seem to get the cfg file to work with the routers. I am using the same router and IOS as you. I do have the two in a folder in the right place I believe.

    I think this site is amazing and all that you are doing to help others. But I’ve run into confusion. You have two zip files to download but no information on why there are two and no description. Not even on your lab do you explain which file to use…

    EIGRPforCCNA1 – Final Configs.zip

    EIGRPforCCNA1.zip – EIGRPforCCNA1.zip

      @ntguy73- the final configs.zip is the config file once the lab has been completed. it’s what your config should look like once you’ve done the lab successfully. it’s posted so you can cross-check.

      the eigrpforccna1.zip contains the topology pre-built for this lab. using gns3, you open the topology file. make sure you’ve imported the ios image referred to here: IOS: c3640-jk9o3s-mz.124-16.bin
      without that ios though, the lab may not function according to spec.

    Rene – You have done a magnificent job working thru these topics. I was wondering if you could also do some coaching?
    I’m going from a old CCNA to my CCNP, and it would be great to have a schedule to follow. Something like:
    Week 1 EIGRP Packets and metrics > Lab (Example) Packets and metrics
    Week 2 EIGRP Authentication and Advanced features. > Lab XXXXXXX
    Week 3 OSPF > Lab XXXXXXXX
    It would be great for me on my journey to know that I am progressing with competency. If I can walk thru your labs on EIGRP and then do them on my own with confidence, I feel like I can move on to the next section/subject.
    The time line helps me set a expectation of progress. If I can bite off the whole CCNP course material (with labs) in XX weeks I can schedule that and know if I am on schedule of behind.
    Just a thought.
    Really appreciate the content.
    Mark

    This is a great Lab I just successfully working on but I really wonder whether if one could Create a summary on interface serial0/0 of router Dobbs so it advertises 5.5.0.0 /16 with an administrative distance of 85. knowing well that there is no EIGRP configuration between router Dobbs and router oHara
