Distance Vector Routing Protocols Question Answer 1 What does RIP stand for? Routing Information Protocol 2 What metric does RIP use for Path Selection? Hop count 3 If the metric used by RIP exceeds this value for a route it is considered unreachable, effectively making this value appear to be infinity to RIP? 15 4 How often does RIP send updates by default (update timer)? 30 seconds 5 What are the main differences between RIPv1 and RIPv2? RIPv2 has next hop addressed included in the routing updates, use of multicases addresses in sending updates. 6 What is convergence and why is it important?

Convergence is when the routing tables of all routers are at a state of consistency. A network is not operable until the network has converged 7 Is RIP considered to be a fast or slow converging protocol? Slow converging protocol For the simple 3 router network (Figure 1), fill in the information that would be in each router’s routing table once the network has converged (see example in Chapter 4, pages 192-193). Figure 1 Questions 8-22
