Routing Information Protocol (RIP) is one the oldest routing protocols available to use. While other routing protocols like IS-IS and OSPF are used in more modern applications due to reduced convergence time and improved scalability, RIP is one of the easiest protocols to configure, and small networks can take advantage of the small bandwidth usage and configuration/management simplicity.
WARNING: EIGRP is currently only tested for IPv4.
Configuring EIGRP in FRR starts by activating the daemon in
Configuring the daemon is done via the
router rip network 10.1.0.0/24 network port7 neighbor 10.0.1.254
In the configuration snippet above, the
network keyword either activates the routing protocol in the interfaces that are configured, like
network INTERFACE where INTERFACE is a port on the switch; or in the
network NETWORK case, where RIP will be enabled on interfaces that have matching NETWORKS. The
neighbor ADDRESS keyword is used when a certain neighbor does not understand multicast, and we form a direct relationship between the two routers.
