I have a very simple problem using RIPv1 which effectively amazed me.
I tried (just for demonstration purpose) a very simple setup using 4 routers connected in line (1721+2610). They all have RIPv1 enabled. There are only classful net. addresses (no subnets).
The routing table is ok, there's connectivity but ALL the metrics of all the routes are set to one(1). So it seems that ripv1 doesn't increment the metric.
I used #debug ip rip to monitor the updates.
How is that possible? Could it be a bug or there is something I didn't understand right?
Please help me understand this issue.
