RIP is a routing protocol that was created by Bob Metcalfe in 1988 with the intention of enabling the distribution of routing information between small-sized networks with up to 30 devices. RIP v1, is the original version of this protocol, which utilized plaintext for transmitting data packets across an internetwork at a maximum distance of 15 hops. RIP v2 was released in 1993 and has since seen significant updates.
It converges faster than RIPv1. RIPv2 is pretty much just like RIPv1. It has the same administrative distance and timers and is configured just like RIPv1.
RIPv2 has the following advantages over RIPv1:
Improved routing efficiency
Improved use of bandwidth
Support for VLSM/CIDR
Routing Information Protocol (RIP) is an older routing protocol which is used to exchange routing information between routers. RIPv1 has some unique features such as:
Broadcast to all the systems in the network
It does not use any form of packet acknowledgement or error control
RIPv2 is a routing protocol in the internet protocol suite. It is used to route information in a network and is one of the foundation protocols of the Internet along with IPv4 and ARP.
