3.4 RIP [v2 and v6]

3.4.a Implement and troubleshoot RIPv2

we mostly ignore it, but i just read through doyle’s rip chapter (again) so i thought i might build it… can’t hurt…

doyle_rip_tcpip

the first task is to build it… note the little blue rip below… that is the gns3 config zipped as in the diagram with only ip addressing… go ahead and download it… tell me if it opens fine… you’ll find the router files, and .net… the image is for  7200’s… with this latest version of gns3, just extract the files and launch gns3… it should prompt you to point to an ios image that you have available… if not, just manually change the image file location in the .net file… i just tested it and it works… this is something i’ve been meaning to do for a while… then, because i know you have the same books as i do because we share the same kind of insanity, go to page 195 of doyle’s routing tcpip and do the exercises for rip…

feel free to tell me how awesome i am at any time…

note: the working directory is not included in the zip for obvious reasons…
