About routing information protocols (RIP)

The RIP service turns on network-wide convergence of routing information amongst gateways and routers. A RIP-enabled gateway passes its entire routing table to its nearest neighbor, typically every 30 seconds.

The Smoothwall’s RIP service can:

  • Operate in import, export or combined import/export mode
  • Support password and MD5 authentication
  • Export direct routes to the system’s internal interfaces.
