How to Configure RIP Routing in Cisco Packet Tracer?

RIP (Routing Information Protocol) is a widely used distance vector routing protocol supported by most routers. In other words, RIP is a Dynamic Routing Protocol.

In our previous article, we discussed information what is RIP Protocol in networking. In this article, we will implement the steps to configure RIP Routing in Cisco Packet Tracer.

To configure RIP on Cisco Routers, Router Rip command applies in global configuration mode. Later, the network addresses that connected to the Cisco define Router in RIP config mode.

How to Configure RIP in Cisco Packet Tracer?

In this article, we will configure version 1 of RIP. Follow the steps below for configuring RIP Routing on the Cisco Router in the Cisco Packet Tracer.

   Step 1

Open the Cisco Packet Tracer program and create a network topology as shown in the following image. Give IP address the computers you added to the workspace, and then you cable all the devices.

Also, you can browse the use of Cisco Packet Tracer.

   Step 2

Assign IP addresses to Cisco Router R1, serial interface, and GigabitEthernet interfaces.

R1#conf t
Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.
R1(config)#interface serial 0/1/0
R1(config-if)#ip address 10.1.1.1 255.255.255.0
R1(config-if)#no shutdown
%LINK-5-CHANGED: Interface Serial0/1/0, changed state to down
R1(config-if)#exit
R1(config)#interface gigabitethernet 0/1
R1(config-if)#ip address 192.168.5.1 255.255.255.0
R1(config-if)#no shutdown
R1(config-if)#
%LINK-5-CHANGED: Interface GigabitEthernet0/1, changed state to up
%LINEPROTO-5-UPDOWN: Line protocol on Interface GigabitEthernet0/1, changed state to up
R1(config-if)#end
R1#

   Step 3

Open the Cisco Router R2 command prompt and give the interfaces the IP address.

R2#conf t
Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.
R2(config)#interface serial 0/1/1
R2(config-if)#ip address 10.1.1.2 255.255.255.0
R2(config-if)#no shutdown
R2(config-if)#
%LINK-5-CHANGED: Interface Serial0/1/1, changed state to up
R2(config-if)#exit
R2(config)#interface gigabitethernet 0/1
R2(config-if)#ip address 192.168.10.1 255.255.255.0
R2(config-if)#no shutdown
R2(config-if)#
%LINK-5-CHANGED: Interface GigabitEthernet0/1, changed state to up
%LINEPROTO-5-UPDOWN: Line protocol on Interface GigabitEthernet0/1, changed state to up
R2(config-if)#end
R2#

   Step 4

Before configuring the Cisco Packet Tracer RIP configuration, test the connection by pinging the interfaces over the computers. Ping through R1 Fast Ethernet and Serial interfaces via PC1 will be successful.

   Step 5

Ping process to the Router’s Serial interface will fail. Because no routing protocol configured.

   Step 6

For RIP configuration on Cisco Router R1, apply these commands.

R1#conf t
Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.
R1(config)#router rip
R1(config-router)#network 192.168.5.0
R1(config-router)#network 10.1.1.0
R1(config-router)#end
R1#
%SYS-5-CONFIG_I: Configured from console by console
R1#

   Step 7

Likewise, apply the following commands for RIP configuration on Cisco Router R2.

R2#conf t
Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.
R2(config)#router rip
R2(config-router)#network 192.168.10.0
R2(config-router)#network 10.1.1.0
R2(config-router)#end
R2#
%SYS-5-CONFIG_I: Configured from console by console
R2#

   Step 8

After completing the Cisco Packet Tracer RIP configuration steps, run the show ip route command on Cisco routers and check the output as shown in the following image.

   Step 11

Ping will be successful from 192.168.10.0/24 to 192.168.5.0/24 as well.

How to Configure RIP Routing in Cisco Packet Tracer?

   Step 12

After configuring Cisco Router RIP, you can use the show ip protocols command on the routers to check the RIP routing protocol.

How to Configure RIP Routing in Cisco Packet Tracer?

   Step 13

The show ip protocols command on Cisco Router R2 is as follows.

How to Configure RIP Routing in Cisco Packet Tracer?

   Step 14

You can examine the other show commands on the RIP configuration on Cisco Router R1.
