enable rip export

enable rip export [bgp | direct | e-bgp | i-bgp | ospf | ospf-extern1 | ospf-extern2 | ospf-inter | ospf-intra | static | isis | isis-level-1| isis-level-1-external | isis-level-2 | isis-level-2-external ] [cost number {tag number} | policy policy-name]


Enables RIP to redistribute routes from other routing functions.

Syntax Description

bgp Specifies BGP routes.
direct Specifies interface routes (only interfaces that have IP forwarding enabled are exported).
e-bgp Specifies E-BGP routes.
i-bgp Specifies I-BGP routes.
ospf Specifies all OSPF routes.
ospf-extern1 Specifies OSPF external route type 1.
ospf-extern2 Specifies OSPF external route type 2.
ospf-inter Specifies OSPF-inter area routes.
ospf-intra Specifies OSPF-intra area routes.
static Specifies static routes.
isis Specifies IS-IS routes.
isis-level-1 Specifies ISIS Level 1 routes.
isis-level-1-external Specifies ISIS Level 1 External routes.
isis-level-2 Specifies ISIS Level 2 routes.
isis-level-2-external Specifies ISIS Level 2 External routes.
cost number Specifies the cost metric, from 0-15. If set to 0, RIP uses the route metric obtained from the route origin.
tag number

Specifies a tag number.


Specifies a policy.



Usage Guidelines

This command enables the exporting of BGP, static, direct, and OSPF-learned routes into the RIP domain. You can choose which types of OSPF routes are injected, or you can simply choose ospf, which will inject all learned OSPF routes regardless of type.

The cost metric is inserted for all RIP-learned, static, and direct routes injected into RIP. If the cost metric is set to 0, the cost is inserted from the route. For example, with BGP, the cost could be the MED or the length of the BGP path. The tag value is used only by special routing applications. Use 0 if you do not have specific requirements for using a tag.

Each protocol can have a policy associated with it to control or modify the exported routes.


The following command enables RIP to redistribute routes from all OSPF routes:

# enable rip export ospf cost 0
