Dynamic Routing Configuration on RV180 and RV180W
Routing Information Protocol (RIP) is an Interior Gateway Protocol (IGP) that is commonly used in internal networks. It enables the routers to exchange its routing information automatically with other routers, and allows it to dynamically adjust the routing tables and adapt to changes in network. The objective of this document is to help configure Dynamic Routing on RV180 and RV180W.
• RV180 • RV180W
Dynamic Routing Configuration:
Step 1. Using Web based configuration utility, choose Networking > Routing > Dynamic Routing.
Step 2. To configure how the RIP packet needs to be sent and received, choose the RIP direction from the RIP Direction drop down menu.
• Both — Broadcasts its routing table periodically but does not accept RIP information from other routers.
• Out Only — Broadcasts its routing table periodically but does not accept RIP information from other routers.
• In Only — Accepts RIP information from other routers and but does not broadcast its routing table.
• None — The RV220W neither broadcasts its route table nor does it accept any RIP packets from other routers. This option disables RIP.
Step 3. Choose the RIP version:
• RIP-1 — This is a class-based routing version that does not include subnet information. RIP-1 is the most commonly supported version.
• RIP-2B — This version broadcasts data in the entire subnet.
• RIP-2M — This version sends data to multicast addresses.
RIP v2 authentication forces authentication of RIP packets before routes are exchanged with other routers . This acts as a security feature because routes are exchanged only with trusted routers in the network. RIP authentication is disabled by default.
Step 4. Check Enable to enable authentication for RIP-2B or RIP-2M.
Step 5. If RIP v2 authentication was enabled, enter the relevant data for the following:
• MD5 Key ID — Input the unique MD-5 key ID used to create the Authentication Data for this RIP v2 message.
• MD5 Authentication Key — Input the authentication key for this MD5 key. the authentication key is encrypted and sent along with the RIP-V2 message.
• Not Valid Before — Enter the start date and time when the authentication key is valid for authentication.
• Not Valid After — Enter the end date and time when the authentication key is valid for authentication.
