Routing Information Protocol = RIP

RIP stands for routing information protocol. It is an intra domain routing protocol.

RIPv1: Routing Information Protocol version 1. Ripv2: Routing Information Protocol version 2. EIGRP: Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol.

RIP is a routing protocol - a protocol (set of rules) that allows a router to exchange information, with other routers, about existing routes.

Routing Information Protocol (RIP) and Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (IGRP) are two very popular Distance Vector routing protocols

· Routing is the process of sending information to a specific destination such as another computer or system. · The router is a hardware device that performs such transmission and it achieved using different routing protocol. · Routing protocol goal is Increased network security.

It is a Hybrid routing protocol. It provides configurable metrics. It establishes formal neighbor relationships among routers.

Routing is of two types static and dynamic . In dynamic routing there are two protocols interior and exterior. Interior routing is inside an autonomous system and Exterior routing is between an autonomous system.RIP is short for routing information protocol. RIP is an interior protocol that is used inside an autonomous system.

Flat routing protocol is a network communication protocol implemented by routers in which all routers are each other's peers. Flat routing protocol distributes routing information to routers that are connected to each other without any organization or segmentation structure between them. Flat routing protocols are primarily those that don't work under a predefined network layout and perimeter. They enable the delivery of packets among routers through any available path without considering network hierarchy, distribution and composition. Flat routing protocol is implemented in flat networks where each router node routinely collects and distributes routing information with its neighboring routers. The entire participating node addressed by flat routing protocol performs an equal role in the overall routing mechanism. Routing Information Protocol, Interior Gateway Routing Protocol and Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol are popular examples of flat routing protocols.

RIP is a protocol used by routers to exchange information about their routing tables. In dynamic routing, a router learns from other routers about possible routes by advertising what they know. RIP is a protocol that can do that.

You might try reading the PDF found at: will probably give you the information you seek.

it is a cisco propriatary routing protocol.

Perhaps you mean the "passive-interface" command in Cisco routers; what this does is that no information related to the routing protocol will be sent through the specified interface. For example, the interface that connects your network to the ISP should not carry any routing protocol information, since the routing protocol is only useful within your company's network.

The routing protocol also specifies how routers in a network share information with each other and report changes. The routing protocol enables a network to make dynamic adjustments to its conditions, so routing decisions do not have to be predetermined and static.

Routing protocols implement algorithms that tell routers the best paths through internetworks. Routing protocols include Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (IGRP), Routing Information Protocol, and Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) to name a few. Routing protocols provide the layer 3 network state update. Routed Protocols are transported through a network, such as Internet Protocol (IP), Novell Internetwork Packet eXchange (IPX), and AppleTalk.In short, routing protocols route datagrams through a network. Routing is a layer 3 function, thus, routing and routed protocols are network-layer entities. Routing tables on the layer 3 switch (router) are populated by information from routing protocols. A routed protocol will enter an interface on a router, be placed in a memory buffer, then it will be forwarded out to an interface based on information in the routing table.

Dynamically, as related to a routing protocol is a type of networking technique whereby the routing protocol creates, updates and maintains the dynamic routing table.

EIGRP : Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol

Routing protocol is used to dynamically learn routing information so routers know where to send packets. The only other option is to manually define all routers within a network which would be very impractical.

A classless routing protocol can route between subnets

to manage large scalable internetworks that routing information protocol couldn't scale

There are various protocols ftp: file transfer protocol smtp: simple mail transfer protocol pop3: post office protocol ip: internet protocol tcp: transmission control protocol ospf: open shortest path first igrp: interior gateway routing protocol eigrp: enhanced interior gateway routing protocol rip: routing information protocol http: hyper text transfer protocol udp: user datagram protocol icmp: internet control message protocol
