confused about the title maybe you know how i feel about Rip Version 1.
I think this is the single most confusing thing i've encountered in my short networking career.
i want to see if i understand this correctly.
this is what i think i know :
it seems like inside the 172.16.5.0/24 network everyone’s subnet mask is set to /24 but because RIP v1 can’t deal with sending subnet masks through a foreighn network the router has to summarize to make it fall on the class boundary. (this is about discontiguous networks)
that's why this statement:
Yes: Does the network have the same subnet mask as the interface that sources the update?
very much confused me.
in summary of that point.
RIP version one has nothing to do with subnet masks. when rip v1 was invented there wasn't any need of subnet masks.
RIP v1 NOT EQUAL TO Subnet masks
