Routing Information Protocol (RIP)

XXX - add a brief RIP description here


XXX - add a brief description of RIP history

Protocol dependencies

  • ["UDP"]: Typically, RIP uses ["UDP"] as its transport protocol. The well known UDP port for RIP traffic is 521.

Example traffic

XXX - Add example traffic here (as plain text or Ethereal screenshot).


The RIP dissector is (fully functional, partially functional, not existing, ... whatever the current state is). Also add info of additional Ethereal features where appropriate, like special statistics of this protocol.

Preference Settings

(XXX add links to preference settings affecting how RIP is dissected).

Example capture file

XXX - Add a simple example capture file to the SampleCaptures page and link from here. Keep it short, it's also a good idea to gzip it to make it even smaller, as Ethereal can open gzipped files automatically.

Display Filter

A complete list of RIP display filter fields can be found in the [ display filter reference]

  • Show only the RIP based traffic:


Capture Filter

You cannot directly filter RIP protocols while capturing. However, if you know the ["UDP"] port used (see above), you can filter on that one.

  • Capture RIP traffic over the default port (521):

     udp port 521
