Enabling RIP

RIP is disabled by default. To enable it, use one of the following methods. When you enable RIP, the default RIP version is RIPv2-only. You can change the RIP version on an individual interface basis to RIPv1 or RIPv1-or-v2, if needed.

To enable RIP on a routing switch, enter the following commands:

switch(config)# ip routing
switch(config)# router rip
switch(rip)# exit
switch(config)# write memory

IP routing must be enabled before enabling RIP. The first command in the preceding sequence enables IP routing.
