RIP Questions

Note: If you are not sure about RIP, please read our RIP Tutorial.

Question 1


“Enable RIP” is surely correct to configure RIPv2 but “enable auto-summary” is not recommended. Maybe there is another suitable option for this question (like “use ‘version 2’ command” or “Allowing Unicast Updates for RIP”).

Question 2


To enable RIP surely we have to enable it first (with the “router rip” command in global configuration mode) -> E is correct.

RIPv2 sends its updates via multicast but in Nonbroadcast Multiple Access (NBMA) environment, multicast is not allowed so we have to use unicast to send RIPv2 updates -> D is correct.

Question 3


The split-horizon rule states that “a router never sends information about a route back in same direction which is original information came”. This rule is used in distance vector protocol (like RIP or EIGRP) to prevent Layer 3 routing loop.

Question 4


A passive-interface with RIP prevents that interface from sending RIP advertisements but it is still receiving RIP updates from other RIP neighbors. This behavior is different from EIGRP and OSPF where the passive-interface statement stops forming neighbor adjacencies over that link.

Question 5


Distance vector protocols (like RIP) exchanges the entire routing information each time the routers send the updates.

Note: EIGRP is considered an advanced distance vector protocol so it does not send the whole routing table for each update.

Question 6


The difference between RIPv1 and RIPv2 is RIPv1 is a classful protocol (no support for VLSM or CIDR) while RIPv2 is a classless protocol (which supports VLSM and CIDR). Therefore in this question if we forget to enable RIPv2 then the router will use RIPv1 and it only advertise major network to other routers. By enabling RIPv2 (via the “version 2” command) the router will advertise two subnets &

Question 7

Question 8


Use the ip rip v2-broadcast command to broadcast RIP Version 2 broadcast updates to hosts that do not listen to multicast broadcasts. Version 2 updates (requests and responses) will be sent to the IP broadcast address instead of the IP multicast address For example:

Router(config)# interface ethernet3/1
Router(config-if)# ip address
Router(config-if)# ip rip v2-broadcast

Question 9


RIPv2 sends its updates via multicast. Use the ip rip v2-broadcast command to broadcast RIP Version 2 updates to hosts that do not listen to multicast broadcasts. Version 2 updates (requests and responses) will be sent to the IP broadcast address instead of the IP multicast address

    Version 2 command is compulsory to enable RIPv2

    Enable RIP command will only enable RIPv1 by default..
    So, Version 2 command is compulsory to enable RIPv2

    Use Version 2 Command
    Enable Auto-Summary with RIP V.2 is not Recommended if there subnet in Networks

    Passed today,
    Exam is not that hard, i studied from this website and IT-Libraries dumps.
    There is a nice study guide for free on the IT-Libraries site and a lot of free dumps.
    The free ones are around 50% accurate but if you study those and the labs from here you are 70% there

    Hi everyone,
    Where could I found these questions ?

    Question 2:
    Which two options are requirements for configuring RIPv2 for IPv4 (Choose two)?
    A. enabling RIP authentication
    B. connecting RIP to a WAN Interface
    C. enabling auto route summarization
    D. allowing unicast updates for RIP
    E. enabling RIP on the router

    Answer: D E

    Answer D seems that is for IOS 12.2 and for RIP version 1. Reference : https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/ios/12_2/ip/configuration/guide/fipr_c/1cfrip.html#wp1002500

    Answer A : RIP authentication is mentioned in RIPv2 options for IOS 15. Reference https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/ios-xml/ios/iproute_rip/configuration/15-mt/irr-15-mt-book/irr-cfg-info-prot.html

    P.S. Question 2 Answer C: enabling auto route summarization. RIPv2 by default is already enabled auto summary. Usually, we should turn it off instead using no auto-summary. If the answer is disabling auto route summarization. I will pick it.

    Q 6 in a Premium test has an error!
    must be

    answer is A,C ,, i know C is not specific correct because auto-summary enabled by default but answer need 2 choices so A is really correct and C is not wrong

    RIP multicast address is, not that is mentioned in the explanation
