RIPΒΆ

RIP is a widely deployed interior gateway protocol. RIP was developed in the 1970s at Xerox Labs as part of the XNS routing protocol. RIP is a distance-vector protocol and is based on the Bellman-Ford algorithms. As a distance-vector protocol, RIP router send updates to its neighbors periodically, thus allowing the convergence to a known topology. In each update, the distance to any given network will be broadcast to its neighboring router.

Supported versions of RIP are: * RIPv1 as described in RFC 1058 * RIPv2 as described in RFC 2453

Simple RIP configuration using 2 nodes and redistributing connected interfaces.

Node 1:

set interfaces loopback address 10.1.1.1/32
set protocols rip network 192.168.0.0/24
set protocols rip redistribute connected

Node 2:

set interfaces loopback address 10.2.2.2/32
set protocols rip network 192.168.0.0/24
set protocols rip redistribute connected
