Okay, so to explain RIP, I've got three routers,…X, Y, and Z, and I've got three networks,…A, B, and C, and what we're gonna do…is we have just made these three connections…between these three routers,…and we're gonna watch what happens with RIP.…So as these routers connect, now keep in mind,…in order for RIP to work, all of these routers…have to be configured for RIP,…and they have to be RIP-capable, and they are.…So the first thing that's gonna happen,…this router already has a route to network C.…
