RIP Configuration Lab This lab lesson is a demonstration of RIP. We run the RIP configuration to show how to configure and what each component is configuration specific. For example, because Static Routers have an administrative distance of 1 and RIP has an administrative distance of 120, only the direct routers are connected for this lab to demonstrate how forwarding decisions are made. As such you'll also learn why RIP would not work if the Static Routers previously connected remained an active part of this network lab exercise.
