RIP configuration of USG firewalls

Configure the RIP on the USG2000 or USG5000 as follows:
1. Run the system-view command to enter the system view.

2. Run the rip [ process-id ] command to enable the RIP route process and enter the RIP view.

If the RIP commands are configured in the interface view before the RIP is enabled, the configuration only takes effect after the RIP is enabled.
3. Run the network network-address command to enable the RIP in the specified network segment.
The RIP runs only at the interface in the specified network segment. For other interfaces, the RIP does not receive and send routes or does not forward the interface route. Therefore, after the RIP is enabled, you must specify the network segment. The network-address indicates the address in the natural network segment.
By default, the RIP is disabled at all interfaces after it is enabled.
The RIP does not support different addresses specified for different RIP processes of the same physical interface.

4. By default, the interface receives RIP-1 and RIP-2 packets but sends only RIP-1 packets. When the interface version is RIP-2, you can specify the packet sending mode. If the RIP version is not configured for the interface, the global version shall prevail.
Configure the global RIP version by running the version { 1 | 2 } command.
Configure the RIP version for the interface.
a. Run the system-view command to enter the system view.
b. Run the interface interface-type interface-number command to enter the interface view.
c. Run the rip version { 1 | 2 [ broadcast | multicast ] } command to specify the RIP version of the interface.
