Connected Routes Advertisment

- A static route is configured with only an outgoing interface, and not an IP next-hop.

How are these connected routes advertised ?
We have multiple options for advertising a connected route, listed as follows:
- A network command configured that covers any connected network whether defined under the interface or in a static route pointing to the interface.
ip route 192.168.12.0 255.255.255.0 serial1/1 !-- The static route will be advertised by the network statement below router eigrp 10 network 192.168.12.0
- Redistribute connected under any routing protocol.
- Redistributing one routing protocol into another, by default the connected routes advertised by the redistributed protocol will be included.
