This chapter reviews distance-vector routing protocols. It covers both versions of the Routing Information Protocol (RIP). Although RIPv1 is no longer a test subject, it is included for reference and because it is still seen on some enterprise networks. This chapter also covers Cisco’s Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP). Cisco’s IGRP is also included although it is no longer a test subject. This chapter also covers the routing protocols for IPv6: RIPng and EIGRP for IPv6. The CCDA should understand the capabilities and constraints of each routing protocol.
