2 Distance Vector Routing Protocols
Intro to Distance Vector Protocols Load Balancing Routing Loops and their solution Examining Routing Tables Administrative Distance Gateway of Last Resort Integrating Static Routes with RIP Basics of RIP and IGRP Troubleshooting Routing Protocols

3 Distance Vector Protocols Intro.
The two important Distance vector routing protocols are RIP and IGRP The ENTIRE routing table is sent periodically to neighboring routers A topology change or a periodic update sends routing tables to neighbors

4 Load Balancing The maximum paths range from 1 to 6
By default most IP routing protocols install 4 routes in parallel Static Routes always install 6 routes Rip can only load balance paths that have same number of hops IGRP can load balance up to 6 unequal paths The maximum-paths maximum command allows the number of parallel paths used to load balance to be changed in configuration mode

5 Load Balancing (switching)
process switching (packets) The router alternates paths on a per packet basis fast switching (per destination) All packets in the packet stream bound for a specific host take the same path Packets bound for a second host on the same destination network would all take an alternate path

6 What is a Routing Loop?

7 How to Solve Routing Loops
Count to Infinity Split Horizon Route Poisoning Triggered Updates Hold Down Timers

8 Count to Infinity Distance Vector Protocols define Infinity as a specific number Looping continues until Infinity (16 for RIP) is reached When infinity is reached the Network is considered unreachable In our example the loop would continue until the county reached 16 and then network 1 would be marked unreachable

9 Split Horizon A routing loop occurs when incorrect information is sent to a router that just sent out correct information The solution is to avoid sending information back in the direction it came In our example Routers A and E would never have received C’s bad info and thus no routing loop would have occurred.

10 Route Poisoning Route poisoning is used to overcome loops in large networks by setting the hop count to one more than the maximum The poison reverse rule states “Once you learn of a route through an interface, advertise it as unreachable back through that same interface”. Route poisoning is essentially the same as poison reverse + split horizon

11 Triggered Updates By sending updates faster than the default update convergence occurs must faster A topology change quickly propagates through a network Triggered updates used with route poisoning marks a “down” network as unreachable quickly through the network

12 Hold Down Timers When a router receives information that a previously accessible route is inaccessible it starts a hold down timer and marks the route as inaccessible If an update is received indicating the route is back up before the hold down timer expires then the route is marked accessible again If an update is received from a different neighbor with a better metric then the route is marked accessible and the hold down time is removed If an update is received from a different neighbor with a poorer metric before the hold down timer expires then the update is IGNORED

13 Examining Routing Tables
Show ip route command How did I receive a route? What is the metric? What is the administrative distance? Is the route directly connected? What is the output interface to get to a route?

14 Examining Routing Tables
Vista#sh ip route Codes: C - connected, S - static, I - IGRP, R - RIP, M - mobile, B - BGP D - EIGRP, EX - EIGRP external, O - OSPF, IA - OSPF inter area N1 - OSPF NSSA external type 1, N2 - OSPF NSSA external type 2 E1 - OSPF external type 1, E2 - OSPF external type 2, E – EGP i - IS-IS, L1 - IS-IS level-1, L2 - IS-IS level-2, ia - IS-IS inter area * - candidate default, U - per-user static route, o – ODR P - periodic downloaded static route Gateway of last resort is not set /24 is subnetted, 3 subnets C is directly connected, FastEthernet0/0 R [120/1] via , 00:00:02, Serial0/0 C is directly connected, Serial0/0

15 Administrative Distance
Administrative distance is a default value assigned to each routing protocol that will favor the best route from one protocol over another one Distances for common protocols are: Directly Connected Static Routes 1 IGRP 100 OSPF 110 RIP 120

16 Gateway of Last Resort Routers try to keep routing tables as small as possible A router may not be able to match a destination network with an entry in it’s routing table Default routes can be entered statically or learned dynamically ip default network x.x.x.x establishes a default route in networks using dynamic routing Any router set with default network x.x.x.x that has a route to x.x.x.x flags x.x.x.x as a candidate default route A default route can be statically set by saying: ip route {next hop ip or exit interface} If no path to the destination network is found in the routing table then the quad zero default is used

17 Integrating Static Routes with RIP
If your static route was not defined with a network command then it is not distributed unless you use the redistribute static command ip route dest. mask ip/interface admin_distance Packets bound for specific destination networks can be forced to follow a certain path Using a higher administrative distance can provide a backup path in case of main link failure

18 RIP Basics To configure use route rip, then network x.x.x.x
The metric is hop count A hop count of 16 is infinity Period updates are sent every 30 seconds It is a distance vector protocol The entire routing table is sent during updates The administrative distance is 120 The hold down timer default is 180 seconds

19 IGRP Basics To configure use route igrp as-number, then network x.x.x.x The metrics are bandwidth, delay, load, and reliability Period updates are sent every 90 seconds The hold down time is 3x the update timer or 90 secs. x seconds = 280 seconds. It is a distance vector protocol The entire routing table is sent during updates The administrative distance is 100 Scalable for very large networks

20 Troubleshooting Routing Protocols
Is the routing protocol set? show ip protocols Is the route in the routing table? show ip route Are the interfaces configured? show running-config Am I using the same version of RIP throughout my network? ping, traceroute, debug
