Difference Between RIPv1 and RIPv2

RIP (Routing Information Protocol)

  • Routing Information Protocol is the oldest networking protocol is known as “distance-vector routing protocols”. There are four timers are used in Routing Information Protocol.
  • RUT (Route Update Timer):- it is a timer of Routing Information Protocol and the time interval is 30 seconds. It is mainly used the timer in RIP.
  • RIT (Route Invalid Timer):- it is a timer of Routing Information Protocol and it will be updated every 180 seconds.
  • HDT (Hold Down Timer):- it is a timer of Routing Information Protocol and the time interval is 180 seconds.
  • RFT (Route Flush Timer):- it is a timer of Routing Information Protocol and the time interval is 24 seconds.
  • RIP allows a number of hops in a path from source to destination.
  • They are mainly divided into two versions they are listed below.

RIPv1 (Routing Information Protocol Version 1)

  • Routing Information Protocol is used for IPv4(Internet Protocol Version 4)
  • The main feature of RIPv1 is classful protocol.
  • VLSM (Variable Length Subnet Masking) supports only in RIPv2 it does not allow in RIPv1.
  • Another name of this protocol is the packet tracer.
  • RIPv1 supports maximum hop count.
  • RIPv1 does not support the authentication of plane-text.
  • The value of the RIPv1 metric (hop count) is 15.
  • RIPv1 updates every 30 seconds.
  • RIPV1 does not update the routing table.
  • RIPv1 is an Open Protocol.
  • Administrative distance of RIPv1 is 120.
  • One of the disadvantages of this protocol is that it can only use small Organizations.
  • In RIPv1 routing updates are Broadcast 255.255.255.255
  • It supports Sub-netting.
  • Very large supports for Variable Length Subnet Masking(VLSM).
  • Different sizes of sub-nets including the same networks.
  • RIPV1 protocols add minute time variable to the update time, to destroy routing tables synchronizing through Local Area Networks(LAN).
  • AD of RIPv1 is 120.
  • RIPv1 is an ordered network.
  • The type value of RIPv1 is 2.
  • The network which is not sub-netted in RIPv1 so it is called RIPv1 is a Classful network.
  • Routers will be sent version 1 packet only
  • It will receive both Version 1 and Version 2

RIPv2 (Routing Information Protocol Version 2)

  • Routing Information Protocol is used for IPv6(Internet Protocol Version 6)
  • VLSM(Variable Length Subnet Masking) is used for RIPv1
  • Route tagging is supported in RIPv2.
  • RIPv2 routing updates are multicast.
  • Routers will both sending and receiving Version 2 updates only.
  • RIPv2 is invented in 1994.
  • RIPv2 supports the authentication of plane-text.
  • RIPv2 is more secure than RIPv1.
  • RIPv2 is defined as an HRP (Hybrid Routing Protocol).
  • RIPv2 does support carry masks in updates.
  • It supports only CIDR (Classless Inter-Domain Routing).
  • RIPv2 is also known as Super-netting.
  • RIPv2 is a smaller network system compare to another network.
  • RIPv2 is a Discontinuous Network.
  • RIPv2 uses the port of UDP (User Datagram Protocol) and the port number is 520.
  • Multicast address of RIPv2 224.0.09.
  • It will cover these later in Doyle ch 7.
  • RIPv2 is defined in 1058.
