Dynamic Routing As mentioned in the previous lesson, Routing table data is populated in two ways, statically meaning it's manually entered, and dynamically where routers on remote networks communicate directly with each other. This lesson examines the process of Dynamic Routing, defines what routing protocol tools are, and cleaning maps out the process by which routers from two remote networks are able to learn of each other, then communicate directly with each other. We'll explain Distance Vector Routing Protocol, the Links State Routing Protocols and their differences, as well as discuss what the Router Information Protocol (RIP) is, demonstrate what a "Hop" is, and map out this processes to show how routing through routing protocols function.
