I get all the prefixes on R3 from eigrp BUT i can't ping any of them.
Not a clue why is hapenning this..
any help will be highly appeciated. thanks

    Assuming you had the f0/0 interface up/up when you tried to ping, what source IP address will R3 use when it pings those networks? Answer that and you should have your answer.

    I agree with networker :p I definitely seen that your F0/0 on R3 on the config output posted you shown was down and down:

    R3#sh ip int br
    Interface IP-Address OK? Method Status Protocol
    FastEthernet0/0 172.16.23.3 YES NVRAM administratively down down


    Was this up before you tried to ping?



    If it was I can see where R3's ping would reach R1, but what happens when R1 tries to echo back to R3?

    R3#ping ip 192.168.48.1 source loopback 20

    Type escape sequence to abort.
    Sending 5, 100-byte ICMP Echos to 192.168.48.1, timeout is 2 seconds:
    Packet sent with a source address of 192.168.20.1
    !!!!!
    Success rate is 100 percent (5/5), round-trip min/avg/max = 28/60/116 ms

    So everything is ok..

    fa0/0 - was up when i issued the ping :)

    thank you.

    Yeah,


    Makes sense because R1 did not have a route to the default source address that was being used before when you initially issued the ping. After using the Source loopback 20, R1 has an EIGRP route to that network, so it knows where to route it. :p
