Converting from RIPV1 to RIPV2

We have 4 off campus locations connecting back to 1 Main Campus router via point to point T1's. Currently RIPV1 is running. Is it difficult to change to V2? I know the commands to do so but I don't know the ramifications. Is there something I should watch out for, be aware of or is it as simple as changing the version. IPX is also running on the routers. Does auto summary come into play?

Re: Converting from RIPV1 to RIPV2

Hi.

You can deploy a migration from RIPv1 to RIPv2 easily by configuring all the routers to send and receive v1 and v2 RIP packets and then change to version 2 only. This way I believe you won't have problems.

By default a router running RIPv1 only sends RIPv1 packets, but listens to and understands RIPv2 packets also. So maybe you don't even need to do what I suggested above.

Regarding the auto-summary issues you won't feel the difference after the migration because RIPv1 as you know is classfull! RIPv2 has auto-summary enabled by default, so if you want you have to disable it manually.

Regards,

NM
