RIP Implementations Attributes
RIPv1 Type Distance Vector
Original RIP implementation, limited to classful routing
Algorithm Bellman-Ford
RIPv2 Admin Distance 120
Introduced support for classless routing, authentication, Metric Hop count (max 15)
triggered updates, and multicast announcements (RFC 2453)
Standard RFCs 2080, 2453
RIPng (RIP Next Generation)
Extends RIPv2 to support IPv6 routing (RFC 2080); functions Protocols IPv4, IPv6
very similarly to RIPv2 and is subsequently as limited Transport UDP
Protocols Comparison Authentication Plaintext, MD5
RIPv1 RIPv2 RIPng Multicast IP
IP IPv4 IPv4 IPv6
Admin Distance 120 120 120
Split Horizon
UDP Port 520 520 521 A rule that states a router may not advertise a route
back to the neighbor from which it was learned
Classless No Yes Yes
Route Poisoning
Adv. Address Broadcast FF02::9
When a network becomes unreachable, an
Authentication None Plain, MD5 None update with an infinite metric is generated to
explicitly advertise the route as unreachable
RIPv2 Configuration
Poison Reverse
A router advertises a network as unreachable
! Enable RIPv2 IPv4 routing
through the interface on which it was learned

Timer Defaults
! Disable RIPv2 automatic summarization Update 30 sec Flush 240 sec
no auto-summary
Invalid 180 sec Hold-down 180 sec
! Designate RIPv2 interfaces by network

! Identify unicast-only neighbors ! Configure manual route summarization

! Originate a default route ! Enable MD5 authentication (RIPv2 only)

! Designate passive interfaces

! Modify timers ! Enable RIPng on the interface
