I do know that RIP and IGRP are both distance-vector, and OSPF and IS-IS are link-state, and EIGRP is hybrid. But where do the orthers fall?
EDIT: Also, is RIPv1 the only classful routing protocol?
Don't take this the wrong way, but this could easily be found with a google search. A big part of IT is being resourceful in finding answers like this.
Right, I totally agree :) I always use google before asking here. I was just looking for clarification. Cos some article describes one as link-state and other said it was a hybrid.
So, I wanted to see what should I answer for the Cisco exam (ICND1).
For ICND1 just know:
EIGRP - Hybrid, a/k/a "Advanced Distance Vector"
OSPF - Link state
RIPv2 - Distance Vector
Also, is RIPv1 the only classful routing protocol?
Yes. Know your metric too btw.
Though only know this for the exam, not for real life, as it's not accurate.
eBGP - DV (i/e doesn't matter, BGP is just DV)
iEIGRP - not a thing (EIGRP is DV, not hybrid (fuck you Cisco))
IGRP - no longer a thing
OSPF - Single Area - LS, Multi Area - Hybrid
IS-IS - Link State
RIP - DV
eEIGRP - not a thing either/DV
iBGP - DV
iEIGRP - not a thing
eEIGRP - not a thing either
Eh, internal/external EIGRP are 'things', they're just not different protocols.
Yes external routes in EIGRP exist, (same in OSPF, etc), though they are literally never referred to as eEIGRP and there is no difference between if a protocol would be LS or DV because a route was redistributed or not, other than that all redistributed routes are DV by definition beyond the point of redistribution.
