Configuring a RIP Network (J-Web Procedure)

Note: This topic applies only to the J-Web Application package.

You can use the J-Web interface to create RIP networks.

To configure a RIP network:

  1. Select Configure > Routing > RIP.

    Note: After you make changes to the configuration on this page, you must commit the changes for them to take effect. To commit all changes to the active configuration, select Commit Options > Commit. See Using the Commit Options to Commit Configuration Changes for details about all commit options.

  2. Click one of the following options:

    • Add—Configures a RIP instance. Enter information into the RIP Configuration page as described in Table 70.
    • Edit—Modifies an existing RIP instance. Enter information into the configuration page for RIP as described in Table 70.
    • Delete—Deletes an existing RIP instance.
  3. To modify RIP global settings, click Edit. Enter information in the configuration as described in Table 71.

Configure RIP receive options.

Select a value.

Route timeout (sec)

Specifies the route timeout interval for RIP.

Type a value.

Update interval (sec)

Specifies the update time interval to periodically send out routes learned by RIP to neighbors.

Type or select and edit the value.

Hold timeout (sec)

Check Zero

Specifies whether the reserved fields in a RIP packet are zero. Options are:
