disable rip

Syntax Description

Usage Guidelines

RIP has a number of limitations that can cause problems in large networks, including:
  • A limit of 15 hops between the source and destination networks.
  • A large amount of bandwidth taken up by periodic broadcasts of the entire routing table.
  • Slow convergence.
  • Routing decisions based on hop count; no concept of link costs or delay.
  • Flat networks; no concept of areas or boundaries.


The following command disables RIP for the whole router:

# disable rip
