RIP v1 vs v2 : Detailed Comparison

RIP V1 vs V2

In this article, we will discuss RIP v1 and V2 difference. With the advent of technology, new features and updates started arriving in networking protocols. Same is what happened to RIP protocol (a distance vector routing protocol running Bellman-Ford algorithm). Initially, RIP was introduced under RFC 1058 and then came advanced version – RIP v2. RIP v2 had additional features which helped support customers and network administrators in deployment, offloaded hosts not participating in routing and enhanced security.

Good thing is that RIPv2 facility full interoperability with RIP v1.

In order to make the similarity between RIP v1 and v2 clear below table shares their commonality in terms of various routing-related parameters –
