CHAPTER 5. Routing Protocols
RIP, RIPv2, IGRP, EIGRP, OSPF
All Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) students need to understand how data is routed between two networks. There are a number of different routing protocols that Cisco routers support, including Routing Information Protocol v2 (RIPv2), Open Shortest Path First (OSPF), and Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP). Some routing protocols are open, such as RIPv2 and OSPF, and can be used in conjunction with other manufacture's hardware. Some routing protocols, such as EIGRP, are proprietary and can only be used when other Cisco routers are present on the network.
CCNA students should be able to distinguish between distance vector and link-state routing protocols. ...
