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

Based on this what address will be assigned as the default gateway on the following PCs.
48. PC1 = 192.163.3.4
49. PC2 = 192.163.3.99
50. PC5 = 192.163.3.67

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).
