Summary of Router Information Protocol (R.I.P):

  1. RIP (Router Information Protocol)
    ○RIP is a standardized Distance Vector protocol
    ○Designed
    ○Wide variety of systems
  2. RIP Versions
    ○RIP v.1
    Classful protocol updates every 30 seconds
    Uses Broadcasts
    Supports up to six equal-cost paths to a single destination
    ○RIP v.2
    Classless protocol uses VLSM (variable length subnet
    masking)
    Uses Multicasts
    Supports Authentication (hashed passwords)
  3. RIP Timers
    ○Update Timer (default 30 seconds)
    Indicates how often the router will send out a routing table update.
    ○Invalid Timer (default 180 seconds)
    Indicates how long a route will remain in a routing table before
    being marked as invalid, if no new updates are heard about this
    route.
    ○Hold-down Timer (default 180 seconds)
    Indicates how long RIP will “suppress” a route that it has placed in
