RIP and OSPF Redistribution
Source: Cisco Systems
This case study addresses the issue of integrating Routing Information Protocol (RIP) networks with Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) networks. Most OSPF networks also use RIP to communicate with hosts or to communicate with portions of the internetwork that do not use OSPF. Cisco supports both the RIP and OSPF protocols and provides a way to exchange routing information between RIP and OSPF networks. This case study also provides examples of how to complete the following phases in redistributing information between RIP and OSPF networks, including the configuring of a RIP network, adding OSPF to the center of a RIP network, and setting up mutual redistribution.
