What is RIP routing? Learn RIP Routing Configuration on router with example in a few steps.

In this article, I’ll explain ‘What is the RIP Routing?’ How to use Rip Routing? and How to configure RIP Routing on Cisco Router. I’ll discuss this topic with the help of RIP routing lab setup that I configured in Cisco Packet Tracer. So, before learning the configuration, we must have some basic information about RIP routing. Now, Let’s learn some basics of RIP Routing.

 

When studying about RIP, the first reaction that shows our face reaction what is RIP routing and why it is necessary to configure RIP routing? So basically, RIP stands for Routing Information Protocol.  It is a dynamic routing protocol that finds the best path between the source and destination network. So in simple words, it detects the best available path to make a connection between the source network and destination network.

Let’s know what’s the configuration on Packet tracer diagram —

Here I took 3 router that is router0, router1 and router2. Each router has one user. Here we required 5 Network address to communicate with each other. So I have provided the IP address to all hosts. After giving IP addresses, I configured the setting of the router. Then I configured RIP routing protocol on each router and then ping each connection to all systems. Now let’s discuss this lab in practical through commands –

The configuration of RIP routing step by steps.

Router 0 :

Step1. Assign IP addresses where it is necessary.

Router>en
Router#conf t

Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.
Router(config)#int fa0/0
Router(config-if)#ip add 1.0.0.1 255.255.255.0
Router(config-if)#no shut
Router(config-if)#exit
Router(config)#int se0/0/0
Router(config-if)#ip add 4.0.0.1 255.0.0.0
Router(config-if)#no shut
Router(config-if)#exit

Step2. Do RIP Routing on router

Router(config)#router rip
Router(config-router)#network 1.0.0.0
Router(config-router)#network 4.0.0.0
Router(config-router)#exit

 

 

Router 1

Step1. Assign IP addresses where it is necessary.

Router>en
Router#conf t

Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.
Router(config)#int fa0/0
Router(config-if)#ip add 2.0.0.1 255.255.255.0
Router(config-if)#no shut
Router(config-if)#exit
Router(config)#int se0/0/0
Router(config-if)#ip add 4.0.0.2 255.255.255.0
Router(config-if)#no shut
Router(config-if)#exit
Router(config)#int se0/0/1
Router(config-if)#ip add 5.0.0.1 255.255.255.0
Router(config-if)#no shut
Router(config-if)#exit
Router(config)#exit
Router#write

Building configuration...

[OK]

Step2. Do RIP Routing on the router

Router(config)#router rip
Router(config-router)#version 2
Router(config-router)#net 4.0.0.0
Router(config-router)#net 5.0.0.0
Router(config-router)#net 2.0.0.0
Router(config-router)#exit
Router(config)#exit

%SYS-5-CONFIG_I: Configured from console by console
Router#write

Building configuration...

[OK]

 

Router 2

Step1. Assign IP addresses where it is necessary.

Router>en   
Router#conf t           


Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.
Router(config)#int fa0/0           
Router(config-if)#ip add 3.0.0.1 255.255.255.0    
Router(config-if)#no shut       
Router(config)#int se0/0/0            
Router(config-if)#ip add 5.0.0.2 255.0.0.0        

Router(config-if)#no shut

Step2. Do RIP Routing on router

Router(config)#router rip   
Router(config-router)#version 2 

Router(config-router)#net 3.0.0.0     

Router(config-router)#net 5.0.0.0     

Router(config-router)#exit     
Router(config)#exit   
Router#write

Building configuration...

[OK]
