Routing Information Protocol next generation (RIPng)

XXX - add a brief RIPng description here


XXX - add a brief description of RIPng history

Protocol dependencies

  • UDP: Typically, RIPng uses UDP as its transport protocol. The well known UDP port for RIPng traffic is 521.

Example traffic

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


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

Preference Settings

(XXX add links to preference settings affecting how RIPng 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 Wireshark can open gzipped files automatically.

Display Filter

A complete list of RIPng display filter fields can be found in the display filter reference

Show only the RIPng based traffic:


Capture Filter

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

Capture RIPng traffic over the default port (521):

 udp port 521
