    Hi

    Im posting in here because i didnt get a response in OT tutoring, and I figure maybe some of you networking guys can help me out.

    i was doing some sample exams and I came across this question for RIP.
    (along these lines anyway).

    Router 1 has 2 directly connected networks A & B and not directly connected C & D. what is the best configuration of RIP on router 1?

    router rip <=my answer
    network A
    network B


    router rip
    network A <=correct answer
    network B
    network C
    network D


    why do they include indirectly connected networks. My Cisco book says only directly connected networks are required, it doesnt mention any advantages (if they exist) of including networks C & D.

    Thank you:wavey:

    Your answer would be correct, You should not advertise networks that are not directly attached. Hope this helps.
