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.

Routing Information Protocol = RIP

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

Rip V1 is Classful routing protocol Rip V2 is Classless routing Protocol

RIP uses UDP protocol with port number 520

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.

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

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.

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.

RIP v1 is a classfull distance vector protocol.It send and receive v1 informations only

It uses hop count in route selection. It is a distance-vector protocol.

RIP listener waits for route updates sent by routers that use the routing information protocol in a corporate LAN.

A routing protocol is a protocol that routers use to tell each other about available routes. Some of the routing protocols include RIP, EIGRP, OSPF, IS-IS, BGP.

RIP and OSpf are non-proprietary protocoleigrp is a proprietary protocol i.e it is a vendor specific

you can use SHOW IP PROTOCOL you will be able to see all running protocols in your router and its details...

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

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

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

OSPF is a classless link-state routing protocol. RIP version 1 and IGRP are both classful distance vector routing protocols, EIGRP is a hybrid protocol that supports classless addressing.

routing protocol: helps to find the best path to transfer the packets from one network to diffrent network example: rip: routing information protocol igrp, ospf...... routed protocol: helps to carry the packets to the destination. example: smtp : transfer the mails ftp : transfer the files.
