Faster Converging RIP

Hi,

Does any body have Idea about making rip converge faster than what it takes time now, by some hook or crook. Triggered or any such methods.

Now I very well know that for faster convergence I need to use EIGRP or OSPF.

But I don't have option other than RIP/RIP2.

Regards

Prakash

Re: Faster Converging RIP

Can you use RIP only where you have to (example the edges) and use another faster protocol everywhere else (like the core) and redistribute?

The only way to do so with RIP is to use the "timers basic" command. This will increase convergence time but will also possibly increase the number of convergence occurrances that the timers have be set to to prevent.

As you are stuck with RIP, timers basic is the command to use, but with caution otherwise lost update packets on the network that otherwise would have no affect can now kick off a reconvergence on the network.

Hope that helps.

Steve
