RIP Configuration Example


RIP Configuration With Packet Tracer

In this article, we will focus on how to configure RIP (Routing Information Protocol) on Cisco Routers. Generally in all network courses, RIP is used to explain routing protocol configuration basically. This is because of its basic configuration.

You can DOWNLOAD the Packet Tracer example with .pkt format HERE.

For our example, we will use the following basic topology:

RIP (Routing Information Protocol)

RIP Example Topology
With this topology, the IP addresses are configured. We will pass the configuration of IP addresses and continue only the routing protocol, RIP configuration.

Before the configuration of RIP, let’s check the routing table of RouterA.

RouterA# show ip route Codes: C – connected, S – static, I – IGRP, R – RIP, M – mobile, B – BGP D – EIGRP, EX – EIGRP external, O – OSPF, IA – OSPF inter area N1 – OSPF NSSA external type 1, N2 – OSPF NSSA external type 2 E1 – OSPF external type 1, E2 – OSPF external type 2, E – EGP i – IS-IS, L1 – IS-IS level-1, L2 – IS-IS level-2, ia – IS-IS inter area * – candidate default, U – per-user static route, o – ODR P – periodic downloaded static route Gateway of last resort is not set is subnetted, 1 subnets C is directly connected, FastEthernet0/0 is subnetted, 1 subnets C is directly connected, FastEthernet0/1 RouterA# show ip protocols 

RouterA# show ip int brief Interface IP-Address OK? Method Status Protocol FastEthernet0/0 YES manual up up FastEthernet0/1 YES manual up up Vlan1 unassigned YES unset administratively down downAs you can see, there is only directly connected neighbours in the routing table of RouterA. RouterA do not know any other networks, also RouterD. There is no routing protocol configured on RouterA.

Firstly RouterA is configured like below with network commands under rip process.

RouterA(config)# router rip RouterA(config-router)# version 2 RouterA(config-router)# network RouterA(config-router)# network
