RIP Cheat Sheet

By stretch | Thursday, October 7, 2010 at 2:38 p.m. UTC


For some reason, people have been asking for a cheat sheet on the RIP routing protocol. I suppose it can be useful for CCNA studies. At any rate, I actually managed to fill an entire cheat sheet (on both RIPv2 and RIPng). Enjoy.

Still a large amount of RIP usage going on in the real world as well so this will be greatly useful. Found it very surprising Comcast uses it for their business class customers.

Nice job Jeremy - no wonder why I keep coming back to this site.

Thanks Man. I'm studying the CCNA at present so this is just the job.

No distance commands, or offset-lists ;) awesome job over here as usual.

Thanks Jeremy,

I wonder what is your study pattern.

Are you not sleeping ?

RIPng port UDP/521 ?

Post of above is correct. RipNG does use UDP 521

RFC 2080 states

RIPng is a UDP-based protocol. Each router that uses RIPng has a routing process that sends and receives datagrams on UDP port number 521, the RIPng port.

True, RIPng uses UDP/521. I've updated the cheat sheet to make that clear. Thanks for the heads up!

It is a nice cheat sheet. Thanks.

Could you let us know witch application do you use to create it?
