The Routing Information Protocol enables routers to exchange routing tables.
A distance vector, as opposed to link state, routing protocol. It is an Internet standard IGP defined in STD 34, RFC 1058 (updated by RFC 1388). See also: Interior Gateway Protocol, Open Shortest Path First....
(RIP) An interior Gateway Protocol used by TCP/IP to exchange routing information on a small computing network.
A TCP/IP link-state protocol that supports the exchange of information between hosts and gateways. Broadcasts a message used to find the optimum route to a destination based on a hop count. Compare with SPF and OSPF.
Enables a router to exchange routing information with a neighboring router. See also router.
A protocol of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) for exchanging routing information about Internet Protocol (IP) networks and subnets.
The protocol used by Berkeley 4BSD Unix systems to exchange routing information among a small group of computers. Implemented by the Unix program "routed", RIP is derived from an earlier protocol of the same name developed at Xerox.
A protocol, limited to a small number of machines attached to LANs, used to exchange Internet routing information across networks.
Enables a router to exchange routing information with a neighboring router. RIP is used in small and medium-sized networks. There is a version of RIP for IP and IPX networks. RIP version 2 (RIPv2) is a newer and more efficient form of RIP for IP networks.
A widely-used protocol for managing routing information within a self-contained network.
An IGP supplied with Berkeley UNIX systems. It is the most common IGP in the Internet. RIP uses hop count as a routing metric. The largest allowable hop count for RIP is 16.
An industry standard distance vector routing protocol used in small to medium sized IP and IPX internetworks.
An interior gateway protocol used with TCP/IP and NetWare.It provides routing information such as what networks are accessible and the number of hops required to reach each one.
A protocol used to exchange information between routers.
A variant of the XeroxNS Routing Information Protocol, used to maintain current kernel routing table entries.
A distance vector, as opposed to link state, routing protocol. Itis an Internet standard IGP defined in STD 34, RFC 1058 (updatedby RFC 1388). See also: Interior Gateway Protocol, Open ShortestPath First.... RPC
