Dialog box element Description

Periodic announcement interval

The number of seconds between periodic RIP announcements. You can also click the arrows to select a new setting. The default value is 30 seconds. You can set this value from 15 seconds through 86,400 seconds (24 hours). This option is valid only if you have selected Periodic update mode as the Operation mode on the General tab.

Time before routes expire

The lifetime (in seconds) of a route that is learned through RIP. You can also click the arrows to select a new setting. The default value is 180 seconds. You can set this value from 15 seconds through 259,200 seconds (72 hours). If a route is not updated with another RIP announcement within the time set, the route expires and is marked as an invalid route. This option is valid only if you have selected Periodic update mode as the Operation mode on the General tab.

Time before route is removed

The amount of time (in seconds) after which a RIP-learned route that has expired is removed from the routing table. You can also click the arrows to select a new setting. The default value is 120 seconds. You can set this value from 15 seconds through 259,200 seconds (72 hours). This option is valid only if you have selected Periodic update mode as the Operation mode on the General tab.

Enable split-horizon processing

Specifies whether routes learned on a network are not announced in RIP announcements sent on that network. If this check box is not selected, routes learned on a network are announced on the same network. By default, split horizon is enabled.

Enable poison-reverse processing

Specifies whether routes learned on a network are announced with a metric of 16 (unreachable) in RIP announcements sent on that network. By default, poison reverse is enabled. The poison-reverse option is available only after split horizon is enabled.

Enable triggered updates

Specifies whether new routes and metric changes trigger an immediate update that includes only the changes. This is called a triggered update. The maximum time between triggered updates depends on the value of Minimum seconds between triggered updates, which you set on the General tab in the RIP dialog box.

Send clean-up updates when stopping

Specifies whether, if RIP is stopping on this interface, RIP sends an announcement with all routes that are marked with a metric of 15. This enables neighboring routers to immediately update their routing tables to indicate that the routes available through the router that is stopping are no longer reachable. If this check box is selected, when the router is stopped, the router advertises all of the routes that it makes available as being unreachable on all of its interfaces. By default, this check box is enabled.

Process host routes in received announcements

Specifies whether host routes in received RIP announcements are accepted. By default, host routes are ignored.

Include host routes in sent announcements

Specifies whether host routes are included in RIP announcements. By default, host routes are not included.

Process default routes in received announcements

Specifies whether default routes in received RIP announcements are accepted. By default, default routes are ignored.

Include default routes in sent announcements

Specifies whether default routes are included in RIP announcements. By default, default routes are not included.

Disable subnet summarization

Specifies that subnet routes are not summarized in the form of the class-based network ID when announced on a network that is not a subnet of the class-based network ID. By default, subnet summarization is disabled. This option is only available if the Outgoing packet protocol on the General tab is set to either RIP version 2 broadcast or RIP version 2 multicast.
