Configures

Enters the routing configuration mode

Default

None

Description

This command starts the configuration of a routing process: it identifies the routing protocol you want to run and other parameters necessary for the routing protocol. The RIP protocol doesn’t require additional parameters; BGP requires an AS number; EIGRP, IGRP, and OSPF require process numbers (commonly called AS numbers); and IS-IS can optionally have a tag that defines a name for the routing process.

Example
