CCNA 3.13: Configure, verify, and troubleshoot RIPv2 for IPv4


RIPv2 is an enhancement over RIPv1 in that RIPv2 overcomes three main limitations.  RIPv2 accommodates discontiguous network designs, supernetting and VLSM.


Study Notes:

  • RIPv2 is an enhancement over RIPv1
  • RIPv2 is encapsulated in a UDP segment on port 520
  • RIPv2 can carry up to 25 ruotes
  • RIPv2 includes a subnet mask field allowing a 32-bit mask to be included in the RIP route entry
  • RIPv2 accommodates discontiguous network designs
  • RIPv2 addresses can be supernetted
  • RIPv2 addresses can be subnetted (VLSM)
  • On Cisco routers, RIP sends v1 messages by default but can receive both RIPv1 and RIPv2
  • RIPv2 automatically summarizes networks to the classful boundary
  • To use discontiguous subnets and VLSM with RIPv2, use the “no auto-summary” command

RIPv2 Configuration Commands:

router rip
    version 2
    passive-interface f0/0

RIPv2 Verification Commands:

show ip route
show ip protocols (to view versions)
show ip interface brief
show run
