Cisco tip: Redistribute RIPv2 into RIPv1

Suppose that you have two networks in your internetwork. Devices in one network support the advanced features of RIP version 2, but the devices in the other network don’t. You can still take advantage of the advanced features of RIPv2 in the network that supports it by redistributing the RIPv2 updates into the RIPv1 network. For the purpose of this tip, I assume you’ve already configured RIP version 2 where appropriate.

To route between RIP v1 and RIP v2, use the following procedure:

On the router connected to both networks, configure the following command on the interface connected to the RIPv1 network:

router#conf t
router(config)#interface [interface name]
router(config-if)#ip rip receive version 1
