(Optional) Specifying the RIP Version

(Optional) Specifying the RIP Version


RIP versions include RIP-1 and RIP-2. The two versions have different functions. The RIP version must be set on the device running RIP. You only need to set the global RIP version unless you want to specify a different RIP version on an interface.


  • Configure the global RIP version.
    1. Run the system-view command to enter the system view.
    2. Run the rip [ process-id ] command to enter the RIP view.
    3. Run the version { 1 | 2 } command to set the global RIP version.


      By default, an interface sends only RIP-1 packets and receives both RIP-1 and RIP-2 packets.

    4. Run commit

      The configuration is committed.

  • Configure the RIP version for an interface.
    1. Run the system-view command to enter the system view.
    2. Run the interface interface-type interface-number command to enter the interface view.
    3. On an Ethernet interface, run undo portswitch

      The interface is switched to Layer 3 mode.

      By default, an Ethernet interface works in Layer 2 mode.

      The mode switching function takes effect when the interface only has attribute configurations (for example, shutdown and description configurations). Alternatively, if configuration information supported by both Layer 2 and Layer 3 interfaces exists (for example, mode lacp and lacp system-id configurations), no configuration that is not supported after the working mode of the interface is switched can exist. If unsupported configurations exist on the interface, delete the configurations first and then run the undo portswitch command.


      If many Ethernet interfaces need to be switched to Layer 3 mode, run the undo portswitch batch interface-type { interface-number1 [ to interface-number2 ] } &<1-10> command in the system view to switch these interfaces to Layer 3 mode in batches.

    4. Run the rip version { 1 | 2 [ broadcast | multicast ] } command specify the RIP version on the specified interface.

      • By default, an interface sends only RIP-1 packets and receives both RIP-1 and RIP-2 packets.
      • If no RIP version number is configured in the interface view, the global RIP version is used. The RIP version set on an interface takes precedence over the global RIP version.

    5. Run commit

      The configuration is committed.
