I have seen videos in CBT nuggets for ccnp and ccna. The instructor always uses show run | section eigrp and it looks very good command

But i am trying that in GNS , it says command not found

How can i use that

I believe the "selection" filter fetures was added to the show command in IOS 12.3(2)

Show Command Section Filter

There are some other useful filters which may work as an alternative sh run | ?

You need a valid Cisco SmartNET contract to download a newer version of router IOS. – HampusLi Aug 11 '11 at 16:45

Shouldn't you be using

show run | begin router eigrp

As far as I know that is the command to view the running config lines relating to eigrp configuration. That should pretty much work on all IOS'es.
