I'm trying to get my head around RIP v1 and how it doesn't work with classless networks. I understand classful vs classless networks, but I cannot seem to create a router configuration that will not work with RIP v1. Admittedly I have spent more time googling for an answer than actually playing with the routers...
Can someone please give me an example of a network configuration that would not work with RIP v1? This should help me understand what is going on.
OK, that makes sense to me now. Thanks John! As for RouterSim - it looks like no auto-summary is the default setting and there is no way to switch it on - the command isn't implemented for RIP in the version I'm using. However, the command is implemented for EIGRP, so I could at least use that and get a better feel for what was going on.
I'm thinking about getting a couple of routers for home but, as ever, spare cash is a limiting factor. Luckily I work at a University that has a Cisco lab that I can use, and RouterSim that I can use remotely from home.
