In this discussion, Russ goes through the definition and function of dynamic routing protocols. Learn the basics of how these protocols help share network information in your topology.
- [Narrator] One of the sources of information…that we talked about during our discussion of…administrative distance,…was dynamic routing protocols.…Now let's take a moment to figure out what…dynamic routing protocols are, and how they work.…Now, dynamic routing protocols are used to share…network destination information between routers.…Now, this dynamic process can even choose between…multiple paths in the event a path goes down.…So a dynamic routing protocol is the way that a router…can automatically choose the best path to a destination.…
Now, remember these protocols are going to…exchange information on destination routes.…And not themselves move any data.…The routers are teaching each other about…the routes they know.…And for us as administrators, that's a really good thing,…cause I know for one,…I wouldn't want to sit there and statically define…every route under my control to every route destination.…So there are several different protocols that can be used…to dynamically train routers about network destinations.…
