Linux - how to turn on the the RIP (dynamic routing)

I doubt it'd be part of the kernel. this RHEL doc suggests quagga is what they use for it, though there's probably several options. Check what service is being used for it on the servers with lots of routes.

I do not advise turning on any dynamic routing protocol on your server unless you know exactly what you are doing.

First of all, most servers have one network interface and do not act as a router, so they don't need a dynamic routing protocol running.

Second, for most servers on most networks an single (static) default route is all you need.

So, just asking the question begs the question of "why do you think you need to turn on RIP?"

This is what I did to start...

Code:
 
#vim /etc/quagga/daemons
zebra=yes
bgpd=no
ospfd=yes
ospf6d=no
ripd=no
ripngd=no 
 
Restart the Quagga service:
 
#/etc/init.d/quagga restart
