    Use RIPv1. The v2 specification uses multicast. Ripd supports both so configure it for version 1 if you want broadcast.

    Hi gregm,

    Thanks for reply. But I would like to know how to make RIP to send out V2 packet via broadcast since V2 packet support more features.

    I tried to modify the destination address of V2 packet from 224.0.0.9 to be 255.255.255.255, but it doesn't work.


    Regards.

    The V2 protocol doesn't support broadcast.
