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.
