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.

Do S series switches support RIP?
For details about routing features supported by S series switches of different models: - S12700: See "IP Unicast Routing" in S12700 Product Use Precautions. - S7700 and S9700: See "IP Unicast Routing" in S7700&S9700 Product Use Precautions. - S9300: See "IP Unicast Routing" in S9300&S9300E&S9300X Product Use Precautions. - S1720, S2700, S3700, S5700, and S6700: See "IP Unicast Routing" in S1720&S2700&S3700&S5700&S6700 Product Use Precautions. - S600: See "IP Unicast Routing" in S600-E Product Use Precautions.

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

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 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.
