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.
