How to Configure RIP Version 1 (RIPv1) Routing in Cisco Packet Tracer

RIP is an internal routing protocol for the internal network that is not connected to the Internet backbone. It is widely used in internet connection systems, where many users connect to a network and can access it from different locations.

How to Configure RIPv1 on Cisco Router

When a user is connected to the terminal server (the device at which the call ends), it informs the nearest router with IP address with an RIP message warning.

It can, therefore, see that RIP is a protocol used by different routers used to exchange information and thus knows where to route a packet to reach a destination.

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

To configure this routing protocol on Cisco Routers, the Router Rip command is applied in global configuration mode and the connected networks are identified.

In this article, we will configure RIP Version 1 on two Routers with simulator software.

   Step 1

Open Packet Tracer and create a network topology as in the following image, assign an IP address to the computers you have added to the workspace, and then wire all the devices.

A Network Topology with Two Cisco Routers

   Step 2

Assign IP addresses to the GigabitEthernet 0/1 and Serial 0/1/0 interfaces of the Cisco Router R1 and open the ports.

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#

 
Assigning IP Addresses to R1's Gigabit and Serial Interfaces

   Step 3

In the same way, configure the Serial0/ 1/1 and Gig0/1 interfaces of Router R2 as follows.

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#

 
Assigning IP Address to Gigabit and Serial Interfaces of R2

   Step 4

Before enabling RIP, test the connection by pinging the interfaces through the computers. Pinging R1’s GigabitEthernet and Serial interfaces via PC1 will be successful as follows.

Ping from PC1 to R1's Gigabit and Serial Interfaces

   Step 5

The ping operation of the R2 Router’s Serial interface will fail because no routing protocol is configured.

Ping from PC1 to R2's Serial Interface

   Step 6

To communicate two different segments, you must configure a routing protocol on Routers. In this article, since we have explained RIP, first use the following commands in CLI to configure RIP on R1.

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#

 
Enable RIP on R1

   Step 7

Now, to enable RIP in R2, follow these commands:

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#

 
Enable RIP on R2

   Step 8

After you configure RIPv1, you can use the show ip route command to validate routes created on Routers.

The route outputs on R1 are as follows;

show ip route command

   Step 9

Likewise, use the show ip route command to learn routing routes on Cisco Router R2.

show ip route command

   Step 10

Ping from PC1 to the Serial interface of R2 and PC3 and PC4 computers on the subnet will be successful as follows.

Ping Test After Configuring Routing

   Step 11

Ping operation from 192.168.10.0/24 network to 192.168.5.0/24 network will be successful.

Ping Test After Configuring Routing

   Step 12

You can check the routing protocol running on the router with the show ip protocols command.

show ip protocols command

   Step 13

In the same way, check R2.

show ip protocols command

   Step 14

After executing the show ip rip database command in R1, you can see detailed route records.

show ip rip database command

   Step 15

In the same way, you can examine it by applying the same command on R2.

show ip rip database command
