Routing Information Protocol
Enabled Turns on the RIP service.
Scan interval

The time delay between routing table imports and exports. For networks with fewer hosts, select a frequent scan interval. Networks with a greater number of hosts should use a less frequent interval.

Note: There's a performance trade-off among the number of RIP-enabled devices, network hosts and the scan frequency of the RIP service. The periodic exchange of routing information among RIP-enabled devices increases the ambient level of traffic on the host network. Accordingly, administrators responsible for larger networks should consider increasing the RIP scan interval or the suitability of the RIP service for propagating routing information.

Direction

Indicates how to manage routing information.

Direction Description
Import and Export The RIP service adds and update its routing table from information received from other RIP gateways. The RIP service will also broadcast its routing tables for use by other RIP gateways.
Import The RIP service adds and update its routing table from information received from other RIP gateways.
Export The RIP service only broadcasts its routing tables for use by other RIP gateways.
Logging level Indicates how detailed the level of logging is.
RIP interfaces
Port 1.57 Solutions The interfaces that the RIP service imports or exports routing information.
Port 3 S2 Imaging Network
Port 4 S4/S8 Imaging Network
Port 5 S10/S14 Imaging Network
Authentication  
None In this mode, routing information can be imported and exported between any RIP device. We don't recommend this option from a security point of view. The authentication method. Turning on RIP authentication ensures that routing information is only imported and exported amongst trusted RIP-enabled devices.
Password In this mode, a plain text password is specified, which must match other RIP devices.
MD5 In this mode, an MD5 hashed password is specified, which must match other RIP devices.
Password Enter the password in the Password box and repeat it in the Again box. Don't copy and paste the password.
Again
Direct routing interfaces
Port 1.57 Solutions The interfaces whose information should also include routes to the RIP service’s own interfaces when exporting RIP data. This ensures that other RIP devices can route directly and efficiently to each exported interface.

Port 4 S4/S8 Imaging Network
