disable rip poisonreverse

disable rip poisonreverse


Disables poison reverse algorithm for RIP.

Syntax Description

This command has no arguments or variables.



Usage Guidelines

Like split horizon, poison reverse is a scheme for eliminating the possibility of loops in the routed topology. In this case, a router advertises a route over the same interface that supplied the route, but the route uses a hop count of 16, defining it as unreachable.


The following command disables the split horizon with poison reverse algorithm for RIP:

# disable rip poisonreverse
