This Free CCNA Packet Tracer activity is really three labs in one, it covers basic RIP configuration, RIP between subnets, and RIP with a stub network. While RIP is a relativity simple routing protocol don’t discount its importance on the CCNA exam or in the real work environment. So download this lab today and learn to configure RIP.
The Routing Information Protocol (RIP) is a distance-vector routing protocol, that employs hop count as the routing metric. RIP prevents routing loops by implementing a limit on the number of hops allowed between the source and destination. The maximum number of hops allowed for RIP is 15. This hop limit, also limits the size of networks that RIP can support. A hop count of 16 is considered an infinite distance and is considered inaccessible, inoperable, or otherwise undesirable routes in the selection process.
RIP implements the split horizon, route poisoning and hold-down mechanisms to prevent incorrect routing information from being propagated to the rest of the network. The following are some of the stability features available to RIP. It is also possible to use RMTI (Routing Information Protocol with Metric-based Topology Investigation) algorithm to address the count-to-infinity problem, making it possible to detect every possible loop with a very small computation effort.
