This chapter explains multiple routing protocols (particularly dynamic routing protocols) and describes their relative strengths and weaknesses. It also shows how to read a routing table easily and interpret the IPv6 routing information listed within it.

Objectives

Upon completion of this chapter, you will be able to answer the following questions:

  • What is the purpose of dynamic routing protocols?
  • How does dynamic routing compare with static routing?
  • How do dynamic routing protocols share route information and achieve convergence?
  • What are the differences between the categories of dynamic routing protocols?
  • How does the algorithm used by distance vector routing protocols determine the best path?
  • What are the different types of distance vector routing protocols?
  • How do you configure the RIP routing protocol?
  • How do you configure the RIPng routing protocol?
  • How does the algorithm used by link-state routing protocols determine the best path?
  • How do link-state routing protocols use information sent in link-state updates?
  • What are the advantages and disadvantages of using link-state routing protocols?
  • How do you determine the source route, administrative distance, and metric for a given route?
  • How do you explain the concept of a parent/child relationship in a dynamically built routing table?
  • How do you describe the differences between the IPv4 route lookup process and the IPv6 route lookup process?
  • Can you determine which route will be used to forward a packet upon analyzing a routing table?
