Basic RIP V2 Configuration in GNS3
What’s new in RIP version 2?
RIPv2 boasts the following enhancements:
- Support for variable length subnet masks (VLSM) (Because of this, RIP doesn’t assume that all networks are classful.)
- Multicast routing updates
- Authentication with an encrypted password for routing updates
The main enhancement of RIPv2 over its ancestor is the fact that it first sends the subnet mask with the updates; hence it is considered to be a classless routing protocol in the sense that it is able to distinguish among different subnets – which is something that is not found in RIPv1.
Objective: Configuring RIP v1 on the routers to exchange routes between the routers.
Follow the below configuration or watch video tutorial at the end
R1 (config-router)#net 126.96.36.199
R1 (config-router)#net 188.8.131.52
R2 (config-router)#net 184.108.40.206
R2 (config-router)#net 220.127.116.11
On Both Routers
• Type Show ip route
• What networks do you see listed?
• Ping your partner’s Loopback Interface address. Are you successful?
