Is it true that on a network running RIP, we need to have RIP running
on links between a router and a switch--meaning it needs to be
configured on a router's ethernet/fastethernet interface?

Re: RIP question
the interface needs to be routed .so RIP will put it in its table on the
router. you won t have to touch the switch config

RIP is OSI Layer3 and a switch is OSI Layer2.
In other words, no, you don't "run" RIP between a router and a switch.

Why would you run an Routing Protocol on a switch?

Re: RIP question
It's from a CertSim simulation.  Here's the proper config:

RouterA:
e0: x.x.10.1
(e0 connected to SwitchA)
s0: x.x.20.1
(s0 connected to RouterB's s0)
config shows rip running on x.x.10.0 and x.x.20.0

RouterB:
e0: x.x.30.1
(e0 connected to SwitchB)
s0: x.x.20.2
(s0 connected RouterA's s0)
config shows rip running on x.x.20.0 and x.x.30.0


Re: RIP question
Sorry, maybe I didn't phrase the intial question correctly.


Re: RIP question


Rip is running on the routers, not the switch.  Notice that there is
no switch configuration.  RouterA is advertising x.x.10.0 and x.x.20.0;
RouterB is advertising x.x.20.0 and x.x.30.0. They are talking to one
another through their s0 interfaces which are on a common network
(x.x.20.0).

Re: RIP question
Ah, I see.  Putting the graphic and the config together got me
confused.  I understand now.  Thank you!
