I. Background The routing information protocol (RIP) is an older routing protocol which, while not as capable as more recent protocols such as OSPF and BGP, is sometimes preferred for its simplicity and therefore still used as an interior gateway protocol on smaller networks. Routers in a RIP network periodically broadcast their routing table on all enabled interfaces. Neighboring routers and hosts receive these broadcasts and update their routing tables accordingly. The routed(8) daemon is a RIP implementation for FreeBSD. The rtquery(8) utility can be used to send a RIP query to a router and display the result without updating the routing table. II.
