RIP versions supported by S series switches
Q: Which RIP versions are supported by S series switches? A: RIP has two versions including RIP-1 and RIP-2. You can specify RIP packet version on an interface. RIP-1 packets are transmitted in broadcast mode. RIP-2 packets can be broadcast or multicast. By default, RIP-2 packets are multicast using the IP address 224.0.0.9. Multicast mode prevents hosts that do not run RIP on the same network from receiving broadcast RIP packets, and prevents hosts running RIP-1 from receiving and processing routes with a subnet mask in RIP-2 packets. An interface can also receive RIP-1 packets when it uses RIP-2 broadcast mode. By default, an interface receives and sends RIP-1 packets. If RIP-2 is specified for an interface, the interface transmits packets in multicast mode by default.

RIP configuration method on an AR router
The Routing Information Protocol (RIP) is a simple Interior Gateway Protocol (IGP) and based on a distance vector algorithm. RIP measures the distance to the destination network based on the hop count. For details about the AR router RIP configuration method, see the URL: Example for Configuring RIP.

How do I disable RIP automatic summarization of S series switches?
For S series switches that support RIP, route summarization can be used to reduce the routing table size. By default, classful summarization is enabled for RIP-2. To broadcast all subnet routes, you can run the undo summary command in the RIP view to disable automatic route summarization of RIP-2. The operation method is as follows: # Disable classful summarization of RIP-2. [HUAWEI] rip 1 [HUAWEI-rip-1] version 2 [HUAWEI-rip-1] undo summary
