Some while back, while doing some RIPv2 testing, I recall I discovered the same, i.e. Cisco RIPv2 converts "router RIP" configured network statement addresses to their classful boundaries. It's been a while, so I don't recall all the details, but don't believe I found a work around, and also believe results weren't tied to usage of auto-summary or not (which I think dealt with what RIP advertized).
I do recall I was disappointed that RIPv2 didn't work more like OSPF/EIGRP, although it could do a bit more than RIPv1. For instance, you can deal with discontinous subnets, but also recall I had to play with different classful subnets on transit links to advertize just some intended summaries.
Perhaps someone with extensive Cisco RIPv2 could add to this discussion.
I completely misread your question yesterday when I answered you. You're seeing "network 10.0.0.0" under the running config for your 10.x.x.x networks, and like the others said, that's normal.
I thought you were being summarized in your routing table and you weren't seeing your specific networks which is what auto-summary would fix. With auto-summary, you would see something like:
R 10.0.0.0/8 via
But with auto-summary turned off you would see something like:
10.0.0.0/24 is subnetted
R 10.15.15.0 via
Sorry for the confusion. Also, if RIP isn't a requirement, I would suggest going with OSPF or EIGRP. If you have equipment other than Cisco, OSPF would be your best bet since it's a standard. If you have ALL Cisco equipment, then you can use EIGRP (Cisco proprietary).
Hi everyone, I would like to thank you in advance for any help you can provide a newcomer like myself!
