Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

RIPv2, and with IPv6 – RIPng, are used in smaller networks that dont need, or want, the complexity of either EIGRP or OSPF.

RIP is easier to configure, administer and edit if needed – no need for wild-card masks or areas or an “AS” – just enable RIP, toss in a few network statements and you’re off and running…

    EIGRP and OSPF are both more powerfull routing protocols than RIP. EIGRP is proprietary (from Cisco) and is not able to escalate so well as OSPF. OSPF is a *Senior* routing protocol, vendor independent and relay on open standards. When well designed and implemented (need a real PRO to do it well) can give you all the manageability wanted/needed.

    i think that ,RIP is so easier than OSPF & EIGRP. The parameter in RIP is less than theirs.but if u want to use RIP in ur company,u must know the network envirement.
