RIP route database

Did you know that RIP, the venerable routing protocol that is present in Cisco routers for the last 20 years, uses an internal database, not the IP routing table, to process RIP updates? This database contains no fancy information (like EIGRP topology table) that would allow RIP to converge faster, but there are still minor differences between the RIP database and the IP routing table.

The article in which I described that feature is long gone, but fortunately saved the day.

Would you like me to migrate that article to Send me a message and I just might do it...
