CCENT student needing help with RIPv2

So I was working on a network simulator provided by pearson vue

I was working on Router 1 or (R1) and I configured router interfaces:

Fa0/0 192.168.5.1 255.255.255.248

Fa0/1 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.0

Then I went to configure RIPv2, using the IP addresses as follows:

network 192.168.0.0

network 192.168.0.0

the commands were accepted just fine, however when I went back to priveleged exec mode I typed in sh ip protocols to check my work, rip hadn't been using any of my interfaces. Why is this happening? I know RIP summarizes IP addresses to the classful boundry, so why doesn't it pick up my interfaces?

Re: CCENT student needing help with RIPv2

Hi Anthony,

when using RIP, the network command will accept only classful address. And address 192.168.x.y is indeed a class C address, therefore using /24 mask.

So the command:

network 192.168.0.0 includes only the range 192.168.0.0 - 192.168.0.255

In order to make your configuration working, you need to type the class C networks into the RIP:

network 192.168.1.0

network 192.168.5.0

Best regards,

Jan

Re: CCENT student needing help with RIPv2

Ah okay, my mind was stuck thinking that this is a class b network for some reason even though I know the class ranges, thus i drew the classful boundary after the 192.168.x.x instead of 192.168.1.x

Thanks for helping me with this :)
