Re: RIP in Operation
However, there is text in the RFC 2453 that states that RIP can use this message to request specific networks also. It also states that such a request can only be made by a diagonistic software and cannot be used for routing. My doubt is, how can a diagnostic software, use the services of RIP for doing that?
This allows a remote node to obtain the routing table information from a remote router in a simple manner.
Sorry, no. The thinking at the time was that this was a good way to debug
routing problems. Of course, this was in the pre-traceroute days.
