RIP Configuration
Routing Information Protocol

RIP needs a connection between two or more routers. Here we are using a serial connection It is one way that routers are able to communicate. This is how you set it up.
Router 1:
This is the first router, its on the network. The router conventionally gets the first IP so we set the routers IP to: because we have the netmask set to
We do that in the FastEthernet0/0 tab (If your router is plugged into the FA0/1 port, set the IP in that tab).
Then we set the IP for the serial to use. That needs its own IP, we set that in the Serial0/0/0 tab(again, if you have it plugged into the other port, set it there). I’ve set the IP to that means all the other connected router will have to be on the same network.(The next routers serial IP will be set to
Router 2:
This is the network. Note this is a completely separate private network.
As stated before, we set the Serial’s IP to
And the Router gets the first available IP, so we set it to
Next go into the CLI tab and type the following commands:
Router 1:
RouterA# RouterA#conf t RouterA(config)#router rip RouterA(config-router)#version 2 RouterA(config-router)#network RouterA(config-router)#network RouterA(config-router)#no auto-summary
Router 2:
RouterB# RouterB#conf t RouterB(config)#router rip RouterB(config-router)#version 2 RouterB(config-router)#network RouterA(config-router)#no auto-summary RouterB(config-router)#end RouterB#show ip route
Gateway of last resort is not set is subnetted, 1 subnets C is directly connected, Serial0/0/0 C is directly connected, FastEthernet0/0 R [120/1] via, 00:00:08, Serial0/0/0 ^------- ***If you see the R youve done it correctly***
A Successful ping from one network to another!
