What is no auto summary in RIP?
Also question is, why do we use no auto summary in RIP?
Due to RIPs classless behavior routing between these networks can be performed without any problems. To be able to do so, you have to disable RIPv2 default behavior of auto summarization so that the appropriate subnet masks can be propagated and update the routing table in each of the routers.
Additionally, what is no auto summary in routing protocols? By default routing protocol like RIP and EIGRP summarize subnets into major classful network at classful boundary. In other word, these protocols perform an auto-summarization each time they crosses a border between two different major networks.
In this regard, how do I enable auto summary in RIP?
auto-summary (RIP) To restore the default behavior of automatic summarization of subnet routes into network-level routes, use the auto-summary command in router configuration mode. To disable this function and send subprefix routing information across classful network boundaries, use the no form of this command.
What is Auto Summary Cisco?
Auto summarization is a feature which allows Routing Information Protocol (RIP) to summarize its routes to their classful networks automatically. For example, consider we are planning to use eight subnets of class B default network 172.16.
