RIP Required Information

Though RIP is a simple routing protocol, there are a few values that must be determined before a working configuration is possible. More information about these values can be found in RIP Server Configuration.

RIP Version

The version of RIP utilized by TNSR must be set to either 1 or 2. This value must match the version used by other connected routers.

Network(s)

The subnet(s) for which routes will be advertised by RIP. Note that this value is not used directly, but is used to locate active subnets on interfaces which match.

Active Interface(s)

Interfaces participating in RIP, connected to a segment with other routers also running RIP. This is optional if the subnet of the interface is also covered by the Network(s) value.

Neighbor(s)

Neighboring router(s) running RIP with which TNSR will exchange routes. RIP will find neighbors automatically, but it is helpful to know which neighbors to look for when troubleshooting.

The example in this section uses the following values:
