RIP Lab Configuration On GNS3:

This is a simple tuttorial for configuring RIP on GNS3, i have create a small lab of three routers and two ethernet switches on GNS3 as shown in network diagram.
RIP routing protocol have simple configuration, you need a just network command to advertised the connected networks.
Configuration for R1:


 R1#conf t
 R1(config)#int s1/0
 R1(config-if)#ip add 100.1.1.2 255.255.255.0
 R1(config-if)#no shut
 R1(config-if)#int s1/1
 R1(config-if)#ip address 20.1.1.1 255.255.255.0
 R1(config-if)#no shut
 R1(config-if)#ex
 RIP Configuration Commands for R1:
 R1(config)#router rip
 R1(config-router)#version 2
 R1(config-router)#network 20.1.1.0
 R1(config-router)#network 100.1.1.0


 Configuration for R2:


R2#config t
R2(config)#int f1/0
R2(config-if)#ip address 172.16.2.1 255.255.0.0
R2(config-if)#no shu
R2(config-if)#int s2/0
R2(config-if)#ip address 100.1.1.1 255.255.255.0
R2(config-if)#no shut
R2(config)#router rip
R2(config-router)#version 2
R2(config-router)#network 172.16.0.0
R2(config-router)#network 100.1.1.0
Configuration for R2:
R3(config)#int s2/0
R3(config-if)#ip add 20.1.1.2 255.255.255.0 
R3(config-if)#int f1/0
R3(config-if)#ip add 10.2.2.1 255.255.255.0
R3(config-if)#ex
R3(config)#router rip
R3(config-router)#ver 2
R3(config-router)#network 10.2.2.0
R3(config-router)#network 20.1.1.0
RIP Verification Commands:
 Show ip route command should display all RIP networks and end to end ping should be successful.

  1. I like your lab examples, but it would be nice to see a list of the router models you used and ISO versions (an abbreviated/content excluded sh ver from each router?).

    1. I think the router models does not matter.

  6. By using 2555.255.255.0 as a mask (S1/0 and S1/1 on R1 to connect to R2 and R3) arent we wasting IP addresses? 100.1.1.0 and 20.1.1.0 only connects two devices to R1 (R2 and R3)...Wouldnt it be more reliable if we've used a /30 mask?
