Routing Information Protocol Configuration
General

Routing Instance Name

Specifies a name for the routing instance.

Enter the routing instance name.

Preference

Specifies the preference order of external routes learned by RIP as compared to those learned from other routing protocols.

Enter the preference of the external routes.

Metric-out

Specifies the metric value to add to routes transmitted to the neighbor.

Enter the metric value.

Update Interval

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

Enter the update time.

Route Timeout

Specifies the route timeout interval for RIP.

Enter the route timeout interval.

Policy

Import Policy

Specifies one or more policies to control which routes learned from an area are used to generate summary link-state advertisements (LSAs) into other areas. The options available are:

  • Add—Adds an import policy.
  • Move up—Moves the selected policy up the list of policies.
  • Move down—Moves the selected policy down the list of policies.
  • Remove—Removes an import policy.

Select an option.

Export Policy

Specifies one or more policies to control which summary LSAs are flooded into an area. The options available are:

  • Add—Adds an export policy.
  • Move up—Moves the selected policy up the list of policies.
  • Move down—Moves the selected policy dowm the list of policies.
  • Remove—Removes an export policy.

Select an option.

Neighbor

RIP-Enabled Interfaces

Selects interface(s) to associate with the instance.

Select the box next to the interface name to enable RIP on an interface.

Click Edit to modify an interface’s settings.

Note: Only logical interfaces for RIP are displayed.

General

Send

Specifies RIP send options. The options available are:

  • Broadcast
  • Multicast
  • None
  • Version-1

Select an option.

Receive

Configures RIP receive options. The options available are:

  • Both
  • None
  • Version-1
  • Version-2

Select an option.

Route timeout (sec)

Specifies the route timeout interval for RIP.

Enter the route timeout interval value.

Update interval (sec)

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

Enter the update time interval value.

Hold timeout (sec)

Specifies period for which the expired route is retained in the routing table before being removed.

Enter the hold timeout interval period.

Metric in

Specifies the metric to add to incoming routes when advertising into RIP routes that were learned from other protocols.

Enter the metric-in value.

RIB Group

Specifies a routing table group to install RIP routes into multiple routing tables.

Select the routing table group.

Message size

Specifies the number of route entries to be included in every RIP update message.

Enter the number of route entries.

Check Zero

Specifies whether the reserved fields in a RIP packet are set to zero. The options available are:

  • check-zero—Discards version 1 packets that have nonzero values in the reserved fields and version 2 packets that have nonzero values in the fields that must be zero. This default behavior implements the RIP version 1 and version 2 specifications.
  • no-check-zero—Receives RIP version 1 packets with nonzero values in the reserved fields or RIP version 2 packets with nonzero values in the fields that must be zero. This behavior violates the specifications in RFC 1058 and RFC 2453.

Select an option.

Graceful switchover

Specifies graceful switchover for RIP.

Select Disable.

Restart time (sec)

Specifies the estimated time for the restart to complete.

Enter the time in seconds.

Authentication Type

Specifies the type of authentication for RIP route queries received on an interface. The options available phoare:

  • None
  • MD5
  • Simple

Select the authentication type.

Enter the authentication key for MD5.

Policies tab

Import Policy

Specifies one or more policies to routes being imported into the local routing device from the neighbors. The options available are:

  • Add—Adds an export policy.
  • Move up—Moves the selected policy up the list of policies.
  • Move down—Moves the selected policy down the list of policies.
  • Remove—Removes an export policy.
