Routing Information Protocol (RIP)¶
RIP is a simple interior routing protocol (IGP), and facilitates routing between private links or segments of local networks. It is a distance vector routing protocol, informing neighbors of known routes, gateways, and hop counts to destinations.
RIP is widely supported and simple, but lacks the speed, efficiency, or capabilities of more powerful routing protocols such as BGP or OSPF.
