How to Configure IGRP?

February 6 2013 , Written by Cisco & Cisco Router, Network Switch Published on #Cisco Certification - CCNA - CCNP - CCIE

If you are not familiar with Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (IGRP), click the following link to view an introduction to Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (IGRP).

 

Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (IGRP) Configuration

Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (IGRP) can be configured in a router using the following IOS commands. If you have a new router with a latest IOS release, you may not find Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (IGRP) configuration commands because Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (IGRP) is removed from new IOS releases.

Router(config)# router igrp ASN
Router(config-router)# network Network_ID

 

ASN in the above IOS command stands for Autonomous System Number.

 

Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (IGRP) - Lab Practice

The following diagram shows our lab setup. We have three routers, three switches and three hosts connected as below. The host names, IP addresses and the interfaces of the routers are shown in diagram. The IP addresses of the hosts are also shown in the diagram.

Hostname and IP address configuration in Router01

Connect to Router01 console and use the following IOS commands to configure host name as Router01.

Router>enable
Router#configure terminal 
Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.
Router(config)#hostname Router01
Router01(config)#

 

Use the following IOS commands to open the fast ethernet interface Fa0/0 configuration mode on Router01 and configure IP address as 172.16.0.1/16.

Router01>enable 
Router01#configure terminal
Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.
Router01(config)#interface fa0/0
Router01(config-if)#ip address 172.16.0.1 255.255.0.0
Router01(config-if)#no shutdown

 

Use the following IOS commands to open the serial interface S0/0 configuration mode on Router01 and configure IP address as 172.17.0.1/16. You have to set a clock rate also using the "clock rate" command on S0/0 interface, since this is the DCE side.

Router01>enable
Router01#configure terminal
Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.
Router01(config)#interface s0/0
Router01(config-if)#clock rate 64000
Router01(config-if)#ip address 172.17.0.1 255.255.0.0
Router01(config-if)#no shutdown

 

Do remember to run the "copy running-config startup-config" command from enable mode, if you want to save the changes you have made in the router.

 

Hostname and IP address configuration in Router02

Connect to Router02 console and use the following IOS commands to configure host name as Router02.

Router>enable

Router02(config-if)#no shutdown

 

Use the following IOS commands to open the serial interface S0/1 configuration mode on Router02 and configure IP address as 172.19.0.1/16. You have to set a clock rate also using the "clock rate" command on S0/1 interface, since this is the DCE side.

Router02>enable
Router02#configure terminal
Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.
Router02(config)#interface s0/1
Router02(config-if)#clock rate 64000

How to View the Routing Table in Router01

After the network is converged after the initial configuration and Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (IGRP) configuration, we can use the "show ip route" to view the routing table in Router01, as shown below.

Router01>enable
Router01#show ip route
Codes: C - connected, S - static, I - IGRP, R - RIP, M - mobile, B - BGP
D - EIGRP, EX - EIGRP external, O - OSPF, IA - OSPF inter area
N1 - OSPF NSSA external type 1, N2 - OSPF NSSA external type 2
E1 - OSPF external type 1, E2 - OSPF external type 2, E - EGP
i - IS-IS, L1 - IS-IS level-1, L2 - IS-IS level-2, ia - IS-IS inter area
* - candidate default, U - per-user static route, o - ODR
P - periodic downloaded static route

Gateway of last resort is not set

C 172.16.0.0/16 is directly connected, FastEthernet0/0
C 172.17.0.0/16 is directly connected, Serial0/0
I 172.18.0.0/16 [120/1] via 172.17.0.2, 00:00:22, Serial0/0
I 172.19.0.0/16 [120/1] via 172.17.0.2, 00:00:22, Serial0/0
I 172.20.0.0/16 [120/2] via 172.17.0.2, 00:00:22, Serial0/0

 

The "I" character at the beginning of a line in routing table shows that it is a route discovered byInterior Gateway Routing Protocol (IGRP) and "C" character shows that it is a directly connected network.

 

How to View the Routing Table in Router02?

When the network is converged after the initial configuration and Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (IGRP) configuration, we can use the "show ip route" to view the routing table in Router02, as shown below.

Router02>enable
Router02#show ip route
Codes: C - connected, S - static, I - IGRP, R - RIP, M - mobile, B - BGP
D - EIGRP, EX - EIGRP external, O - OSPF, IA - OSPF inter area
N1 - OSPF NSSA external type 1, N2 - OSPF NSSA external type 2
E1 - OSPF external type 1, E2 - OSPF external type 2, E - EGP
i - IS-IS, L1 - IS-IS level-1, L2 - IS-IS level-2, ia - IS-IS inter area
* - candidate default, U - per-user static route, o - ODR
P - periodic downloaded static route

Gateway of last resort is not set

I 172.16.0.0/16 [120/1] via 172.17.0.1, 00:00:07, Serial0/0
C 172.17.0.0/16 is directly connected, Serial0/0
C 172.18.0.0/16 is directly connected, FastEthernet0/0
C 172.19.0.0/16 is directly connected, Serial0/1
I 172.20.0.0/16 [120/1] via 172.19.0.2, 00:00:20, Serial0/1

 

The "I" character at the beginning of a line in routing table shows that it is a route discovered by Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (IGRP) and "C" character shows that it is a directly connected network.

 

How to View the Routing Table in Router03?

When the network is converged after the initial configuration and Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (IGRP) configuration, we can use the "show ip route" to view the routing table in Router03, as shown below.

Router03>enable
Router03#show ip route
Codes: C - connected, S - static, I - IGRP, R - RIP, M - mobile, B - BGP
D - EIGRP, EX - EIGRP external, O - OSPF, IA - OSPF inter area
N1 - OSPF NSSA external type 1, N2 - OSPF NSSA external type 2
E1 - OSPF external type 1, E2 - OSPF external type 2, E - EGP
i - IS-IS, L1 - IS-IS level-1, L2 - IS-IS level-2, ia - IS-IS inter area
* - candidate default, U - per-user static route, o - ODR
P - periodic downloaded static route

Gateway of last resort is not set

I 172.16.0.0/16 [120/2] via 172.19.0.1, 00:00:02, Serial0/1
I 172.17.0.0/16 [120/1] via 172.19.0.1, 00:00:02, Serial0/1
I 172.18.0.0/16 [120/1] via 172.19.0.1, 00:00:02, Serial0/1
C 172.19.0.0/16 is directly connected, Serial0/1
C 172.20.0.0/16 is directly connected, FastEthernet0/0

 

The "I" character at the beginning of a line in routing table shows that it is a route discovered by Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (IGRP) and "C" character shows that it is a directly connected network.

 

Verify the Connectivity between Networks Using the Ping Command

To verify the Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (IGRP) routes and the connectivity between networks, run the ping command from Host01 (IP address: 172.16.0.10/16) to Host03 (IP address: 172.20.0.10/16).

C:\>ping 172.20.0.10

Pinging 172.20.0.10 with 32 bytes of data:

Reply from 172.20.0.10: bytes=32 time=172ms TTL=125
Reply from 172.20.0.10: bytes=32 time=188ms TTL=125
Reply from 172.20.0.10: bytes=32 time=157ms TTL=125
Reply from 172.20.0.10: bytes=32 time=188ms TTL=125

Ping statistics for 172.20.0.10:
Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
Minimum = 157ms, Maximum = 188ms, Average = 176ms

 

The ping reply from Host03 (IP address: 172.20.0.10/16) shows that the Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (IGRP) is configured well in three routers and there is network connectivity between different networks.

Obat Kutil Kelamin 05/08/2015 18:00

Kondiloma akuminata atau yang sering disebut sebagai kutil kelamin, merupakan salah satu penyakit seksual menular (PMS) yang disebabkan oleh virus yang bernama Humanpapilloma virus (HPV). Terdapat lebih dari 40 jenis HPV yang dapat menginfeksi daerah kelamin laki-laki dan perempuan. Jenis HPV ini juga dapat menginfeksi mulut dan tenggorokan. Kebanyakan orang yang terinfeksi dengan HPV bahkan tidak tahu mereka memilikinya. HPV tidak sama dengan herpes atau HIV (AIDS).

Thanks, pretty comprehensive information!
