Enables RIP for the whole router.
This command has no arguments or variables.
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 enables RIP for the whole router:
# enable rip
