Routing Information Protocol Version 1 (RIPv1) Lab

First a quick overview of RIP V1 or Watch video tutorial at the end of this post


• RIPv1 is a Distance-Vector Routing protocol.

• RIPv1 is a Classful routing protocol. Classful routing protocols support only the networks which are not subnetted. Classful routing protocols do not send subnet mask information with their routing updates. In other words, if you have a subnetted network in your RIPv1 routing domain, RIPv1 will announce that network to other as unsubnetted network.

• RIPv1 does not support VLSM (Variable Length Subnet Masking).

• RIPv1 support maximum metric (hop count) value of 15. Any router farther than 15 hops away is considered as unreachable.

• RIPv1 send routing updates periodically every 30 seconds as broadcasts using destination IP address as limited broadcast IP adddress Since the updates are sent using the destination IP address of limited broadcast IP adddress, every router need to process the routing update messages (whether they are running RIPv1 or not).

• RIPv1 does not support authentication of update messages (plain-text or MD5).
