RIP2: Routing Information Protocol version 2
Routing Information Protocol version 2 (RIP2) is an extension of the Routing Information Protocol (RIP), intended to expand the amount of useful information carried in the RIP2 messages and to add a measure of security. RIP2 is a UDP-based protocol. Each host that uses RIP2 has a routing process that sends and receives datagrams on UDP port number 520. RIP and RIP2 are for the IPv4 network while the RIPng is designed for the IPv6 network.
