Using the Routing Information Protocol Service

Note: This topic applies to the Kenilworth Release.

The Routing Information Protocol (RIP) service enables network-wide convergence of routing information amongst gateways and routers. A RIP-enabled gateway passes its entire routing table to its nearest neighbor, typically every 30 seconds.

The Smoothwall’s RIP service can:

Operate in import, export or combined import/export mode
Support password and MD5 authentication
Export direct routes to the system’s internal interfaces.
