Routing Information Protocol
The Routing Information Protocol (RIP) has been a long-standing protocol
used by routers for exchanging route information. RIP is a distance vector
protocol whereby each route is characterized by the number of gateways, or
hops, a packet must traverse to reach its intended destination. Categorized as
an interior gateway protocol, RIP operates within the scope of an autonomous
system. RIP is a simple protocol. Its usefulness is limited to moderately sized
networks whose physical interconnections are of similar type and speed.
PowerConnect routing supports RIPv2 as specified in RFC 2453.
