Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP) is an open-standard distance vector protocol developed by Cisco. Routers running EIGRP must form neighbors before they can begin to exchange routes. The multicast address for EIGRP communication is over 126.96.36.199.
In this lab we will configure the Open Shortest Path First routing protocol (OSPF) between two routers in the same area. With OSPF you must use a wildcard mask in your network statements as shown below.
RIP (Routing Information Protocol) is a distance vector protocol which uses Hop Counts (Max 15 hops) as a routing Metric. Default RIPv2 Timers Update – 30 Sec Invalid – 180 Sec Hold Down – 180 Sec Flush – 240 Sec Admin Distance – 120 UDP Port – 520 Authentication – MD5 & Plain Multicast Address …
A default static route is required when the destination network is NOT known by the routing table. When is a default static route required?Stub Networks – Networks with only one exit pointLimited by router resources
