rip is short for routing information protcol

it is a routing protocol that shared routing tables from 1 router to another to a maximum of 16 hops of 16 routers

rip hop count is 15, if it reaches 16 it indicates network is unreachable

A(config)# router rip A(config-router)# passive-interface S0/0 B(config)# router rip B(config-router)# network B(config-router)# network A(config)# router rip A(config-router)# no network B(config)# router rip B(config-router)# passive-interface S0/0 A(config)# no router rip

to identify the directly connected networks that will be announced in RIP updates

OSPF and RIP are used in the network layer of the ISO model.

RIP is a IGP protocol that allows routers to advertise what they know about their routes to other routers. Since routers operate at the network layer (3), so does RIP.

If the network uses the RIP protocol, router A will determine that all paths have equal cost. If the network uses the RIP protocol, router A will update only the A-C-E path in its routing table. If the network uses the EIGRP routing protocol, router A will determine that path A-D-E has the lowest cost. If both RIP and EIGRP protocols are configured on router A, the router will use the route information that is learned by the RIP routing protocol.

It uses triggered updates to announce network changes if they happen in between the periodic updates.

The network is not included in the RIP configuration of R2.

the types of network configuration is.. removing skills..

Here is a basic overview of the configuration of RIP on a Cisco router:Router(config)#router ripRouter(config-router)#network 192.168.x.0 address can be changed to whatever address you would like to be broadcast over RIP. There are also other settings that can be configured.If you use RIPv2 you can also have the following configuration:Router(config)#router ripRouter(config-router)#version 2Router(config-router)#network Configured from console by consoleRouter#copy running-config startup-configDestination filename [startup-config]?Building configuration...[OK]Router#

Boundary routers have interfaces in more than one major classful network.

The debug ip rip command is a useful tool to help diagnose and resolve networking problems, providing real-time, continuous information. Because debugging output is assigned priority in the CPU process, it can render the system unusable. For this reason, use debug commands only to troubleshoot specific problems. Moreover, it is best to use debugcommands during periods of lower network traffic and fewer users.Most RIP configuration errors involve an incorrect network statement configuration, a missing networkstatement configuration, or the configuration of dis-contiguous subnets in a classful environment. An effective command used to find issues with RIP updates is debug ip rip.hope that helps!

The most common Network routing protcols used for interior routing is OSPF and RIP. RIP is still common because of its compability whit older hardware and software.

A Rip has a few meanings but a common meaning is a Rip as in the ocean rip.

The routers are configured with different versions of RIP. R2 is not forwarding the routing updates.

A Google search for the phrasehop count limit rip problemsreturns a link which says the following."The hop count limit helps RIP instability by limiting the number of times a message can be sent through the routers, thereby limiting the back and forth updating that may occur if part of a network goes down."

When you have multiple routing protocols running (e.g. RIP, OSPF, EIGRP), the one with the lowest administrative distance is used for the routing table. The metric is different; it's used within the routing protocol to determine which route is best to a certain network. EIGRP has a AD of 90. RIP has an AD of 120. Since EIGRP has a lower AD, it will be used for the routing table.

Blu Ray Rip. Same as a DVD Rip but from a blu ray disc :)

As a noun, rip is "déchirure" As a verb, rip is "déchirer"

It identifies directly connected networks that will be included nt theRIP routing updates

It's a protocol that routers use to figure out how to get to other devices on the network. Even if they have to go through other routers and different networks.

Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (IGRP) IGRP is a distance-vector interior gateway protocol (IGP). Distance-vector routing protocols call for each router to send all or a portion of its routing table in a routing-update message at regular intervals (every 90 seconds) to each of its neighboring routers. As routing information proliferates through the network, routers can calculate distances to all nodes within the internetwork. IGRP uses a combination (vector) of metrics. Internetwork delay, bandwidth, reliability, and load are all factored into the routing decision. Network administrators can set the weighting factors for each of these metrics. IGRP uses either the administrator-set or the default weightings to automatically calculate optimal routes.Routing Information Protocol (RIP) The Routing Information Protocol (RIP) is a distance-vector protocol that uses hop count as its metric. RIP is widely used for routing traffic in the global Internet and is an interior gateway protocol (IGP), which means that it performs routing within a single autonomous system. RIP only uses hop count to determine the best route to a remote network, RIP has a maximum hop count of 15, 16 is deemed unreachable. RIP works well in small internetworks, but is inefficient for large networks. RIP is susceptible to all the problems normally associated with distance vector routing protocols. It is slow to converge and forces routers to learn network information only from neighbors. RIP version 1 uses classful routing (all devices in the network must use the same subnet mask because RIP version 1 doesn't send updates with subnet information). RIP version 2 uses classless routing and does send subnet mask information with route updates. RIP networks need the same hop count to load balance multiple links.
