The Routing Information Protocol (RIP) was one of the most commonly used interior gateway protocol (IGP) routing protocols on internal networks (and to a lesser extent, networks connected to the Internet), which helps routers dynamically adapt to changes of network connections by communicating information about which networks each router can reach and how far away those networks are.

Although RIP is still actively used, it is generally considered to have been made obsolete by routing protocols such as OSPF and IS-IS. Nonetheless, a somewhat more capable protocol in the same basic family (distance-vector routing protocols), was Cisco's proprietary (IGRP)

RIP finds best path to route based by Distance and Direction. Administrative Distance is 120. If any remote router goes down,it will check Adjacent router to find out the some other best path. Source: CoolInterview.com

Routing Information Protocol(RIP) is a true distance-vector routing protocol. Ir sends the complete routing table out to all active interfaces every 30 seconds. RIP only uses hop count to determine the best way to a remote network, but it has a miximum allowable hop count of 15by defult,meaning that 16 is deemed unreachable. RIP works well in small networks, but ti's inefficient on large networks with slow WAN lins or on networks with a large number of routers installed.
RIP Timer:-
1. Router update time 30seconds
2. Router invalid timer 180seconds
3. Router holddown timer 180sec
4. Router flush timer 240sec Source: CoolInterview.com

RIP-> Routing Information Protocol. The RIP has two versions. They are : RIP V1 & RIP V2 and difference between these two are:

RIP V1 It doesn?t support Discontiguous network
RIP V1 It cant support VLSM
RIP V1 It is CLASSFULL
-------------------------------
RIP V2 It supports Discontiguous network
RIP V2 It can support VLSM
RIP V2 It is CLASSLESS
---------------------------------
Both are Distance vector routing protocols and will support upto 15 hops max.

RIP is dynamic vector routing protocol .It automatically assign its path for transferring the information .Its A.D (administrative distance) no. is 120.Also, it is a distance vector routing vector routing protocol.Its max. hop count is 15 means that we can't connnect more than 15 p.c. in a network.

RIP is a distance vector routing protocol that is used in a smaller network where maximum no of router is 15.and it sends periodic full routing table update to all it's neighbor at every 30 seconds Source: CoolInterview.com
