The Configure and Verify RIPv2 for IPv4 module provides you with the instructions and Cisco hardware to develop your hands on skills in configuring the RIP routing protocol for Cisco routers. This module includes exercises that will cover the following topics:

  • Enabling and configuring RIPv2
  • Learn how to configure passive interfaces, adjust RIP timers, change auto-summarization configuration and redistribute a static route

Exercise 1 - Configuring RIP v2

In this exercise, you will learn how to configure Routing Information Protocol or RIP v2. RIP is a distance vector routing protocol. The main difference between version 1 and version 2 is the ability to carry subnetting information, thus supporting Classless Inter-Domain Routing (CIDR).

This exercise begins in a similar manner to an exercise of the previous lab. However, it further explores the functionality of RIP. In any case, it is a good opportunity for review.

Exercise 2 - Configuring Additional Parameters of RIP v2

There are many parameters of RIP that you can change in order to accommodate your network implementation. Some of these will be examined in this exercise.
