Configuring RIP on a Windows Server Network

In this exercise, we will configure RIP v2.

1. Begin by configuring LAN Routing in Routing and Remote Access. Click Start | Programs | Administrative Tools | Routing and Remote Access.

2. In the left pane of the Routing and Remote Access management console, right-click the server name and select Configure and Enable Routing and Remote Access. If this option is grayed out, select Disable Routing and Remote Access to start with a fresh configuration.

3. On the first page of the Routing and Remote Access Server Setup Wizard, click Next.

4. Select Custom Configuration and click Next as shown in Figure 8.67. Figure 8.67 Custom Routing and Remote Access Configuration

Configuration

You can enable any of the following combinations of s< customize this server

T Remote access [dial-up 01 VPN] Allow lemote clients to connect to this servei through either a dial-up connection or c secure Viitual Private Network [VPN] Internet connection.

C Network address translation (NAT) Allow internal clients to connect to the Internet using one public IP address.

C Virtual Private Network [VPN] access and NAT Allow remote clients to connect to this server through the Internet and local clients tc connect to the Internet using a single public IP address.

C Secure connection between two private networks

Connect this network to a remote network, such as a branch office.

imbination of the features available in Routing and Remote Access.

6. Select Finish. A message box will display asking if you would like to enable the Routing and Remote Access Service. Select OK to enable LAN routing.

7. Now that the Routing and Remote Access Service is enabled, we have to configure RIP v1.

8. In the left pane, select IP Routing. Right-click on General and select New Routing Protocol as shown in Figure 8.69.

10. Now an entry for RIP will be displayed in the left pane beneath the IP Routing icon. This means that RIP is enabled on the server but at this point, RIP will not advertise any routes because we have to tell RIP which interfaces to use for route advertisement.

11. In the left pane, right-click RIP and select New Interface

12. In the New Interface for RIP Version 2 for Internet Protocol dialog box, select the interface that provides the common link between your routers as shown in Figure 8.71. In this case, the common interface has been named WAN.

13. From the left pane, select IP Routing | RIP.

14. From the right pane, right-click RIP and select Properties.

15. The default setting for RIP in a Windows Server 2003 environment is Rip version 2 broadcast for the Outgoing packet protocol: drop-down list and Rip version 1 and 2 for the Incoming packet protocol: drop-down box. If we are using only RIP version 2 throughout our network, and the transport medium will be Ethernet, it is best to use RIP version 2 multicast for the Outbound packet protocol: drop-down selection and to ensure only RIP version 2 operation, select RIP version 2 only from the Incoming protocol packet: drop-down list as shown in Figure 8.72.

16. Repeat this process for the other Windows Server 2003 router that will be advertising RIP version 2 on your network.

Now that RIP is configured, verify the operation by using the Show Neighbor... command. From the left pane of the Routing and Remote Access management console, select IP Routing. From the right pane of the management console, right-click RIP and select Show Neighbors____You should see that RIP v2 is the protocol used for the advertisements as shown in Figure 8.73.
