- [Voiceover] In 1994, RIP version two was first described.…RFC2453 is the current standard…and was completed in November of 1998.…RIP version two is the best known distance-vector protocol…and its first iteration was, at one time,…one of the most widely deployed dynamic routing protocols.…Version two allowed for variable length subnet masks…or the ability to advertise networks…that weren't divided solely on classful boundaries.…
It also provided for route authentication,…and the sending of updates via multicast addresses.…When sending said updates,…it sends to multicast address 22.214.171.124.…RIP version one and two both send updates every 30 seconds…and a maximum hop count of 15,…used triggered updates on metric changes,…limit updates to 25 routes,…used UDP port 520 for communication,…and had the same administrative distance of 120.…
They both also use split horizon with reverse poisoning…and counting to infinity to prevent loops.…Authentication allows only expected routes…to become neighbors and exchange information.…
He discusses different WAN technologies and features such as speeds, spans, and price points—including inexpensive options such as VPN. He then covers switches (the devices that connect computers in your building) and routers (devices that control the transmission of network data). Along the way, Greg shows how to build private connections, implement free networking over the Internet, build switch networks, and overlay-routed networks. He'll also introduce different routing protocols, such as OPSF link-state routing and distance-vector routing with RIPv2, EIGRP, and BGP.
Note that this course maps to domains 1 and 2 of the Microsoft Technology Associate (MTA) Networking Fundamentals certification exam (98-366).
