Fusion RIP (Routing Information Protocol)

RIP has been widely accepted as the standard routing protocol designed specifically for providing network routing based upon distance-vector algorithms. RIP routers send broadcast messages onto the network, which contain routing information about the network. This information is shared among all the RIP capable routers in the network so that each router understands where it exists in the network, and where its routes lead. Currently there are industry documents, (RFCs) which describe the specifications required to implement RIP. The Fusion RIP source code offering is a high-performance portable software engine that implements IP forwarding and route generation per industry standard RFCs.

Fusion RIP features:

  • Source routing
  • Route recording
  • Fragmentation and reassembly
  • Proxy ARP
  • Static routes
  • ARP entries
  • Redirect
  • Echo
  • Address mask
  • Router discover
  • Generic link addressing (supports non-IEEE addresses and networks with token-ring source-routing bridges)
  • Multi-protocol forwarding database
  • Generic data-link addressing with broadcast and point to point support
  • Unnumbered RIP support
  • RRD compliant
  • Operating system independent
  • Straight forward porting
  • RIP2
    - assumes classless routes and implements RIP2 for generic sub netting
    - allows a unified database to be shared with link-state protocols such as OSPF and Integrated ISIS
