Prefix-List:

Prefix-lists are used to match on prefix and prefix-length pairs. Normal prefix-list syntax is as follows: ip prefix-list LIST permit w.x.y.z/len Where w.x.y.z is your exact prefix And where len is your exact prefix-length “ip prefix-list LIST permit 1.2.3.0/24” would be an exact match for the prefix 1.2.3.0 with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0. This does not match 1.2.0.0/24, nor does it match 1.2.3.4/32, nor anything in between. When you add the keywords “GE” and “LE” to the prefix-list, the “len” value changes its meaning. When using GE and LE, the len value specifies how many bits of the prefix you are checking, starting with the most significant bit.

Distribute-List:

A distribute-list is used to control routing updates either coming TO your router or leaving FROM your router. Distribute-lists work on a variety of different IOS routing protocols. Because of that, learning how to use distribute-lists is very valuable.
