Routing Information Protocol (RIPv2) Settings Configuration on SG500X Series Stackable Switches
Routing Information Protocol (RIP) is a type of distance-vector protocol for local and wide-area networks. It classifies routers as either active or passive. Active routers will advertise their routes to others; passive routers listen to other devices and update their routes based on advertisements, but do not advertise. Routers typically run RIP in active mode while hosts use passive mode. RIP is an Interior Gateway Protocol (IGP).
RIPv2 is an enhancement of RIPv1. RIPv2 is a classless protocol and RIPv1 is a class based protocol. RIPv2 has password authentication while RIPv1 does not have password authentication. RIPv2 uses multicast and RIPv1 uses broadcast.
This article explains how to configure RIPv2 settings by adding an IP Interface on the SG500X Series Stackable Switches.
• SG500X Series Stackable Switches
RIPv2 Settings Configuration
Step 1. Log in to the web configuration utility, and choose IP Configuration > RIPv2 > RIPv2 Settings. The RIPv2 Settings page opens:
Step 2. Click Add to add a new IP interface.
Step 3. Choose an IP address from the IP Address drop-down list.
Step 4. Check Enable in the Passive field to disallow the selected IP interface to send RIP route update messages.
Step 5. (Optional) Enter the offset value in the Offset field. This value reflects the additional use cost of the selected interface.
Step 6. (Optional) Click the radio button that corresponds with the desired authentication mode in the Authentication Mode field.
• None — No authentication is performed.
• Text — The key password used in the Key Password field is used for authentication.
• MD5 — The key chain chosen from the drop-down menu in the Key Chain field is used for authentication.
Note: A key must already be defined to use the MD5 option.
Step 7. Check Enable in the Default Route field to create a default route on the specified IP interface.
Step 8. Enter a metric value in the Default Route Metric field.
Step 9. (Optional) Check Enable in the Distribute list-in field to filter RIP incoming routes for the selected IP address. Choose an Access List from the drop-down list in the Access List Name field.
Note: An Access List must already be defined to enable Distribute list-in.
Step 10. (Optional) Check Enable in the Distribute list-out field to filter RIP outgoing routes for the selected IP address. Choose an Access List from the drop-down list in the Access List Name field.
Note: An Access List must already be defined to enable Distribute list-Out.
