How Many Routes Can be carried by a RIP Version 1 & RIP Version 2 Update Packets ?

I Know Both RIP Version 1 & 2 Using the Metric of Hop Count and Maximum Hop Count is 16.

  • Thank you for your question. Are you asking the maximum number of RIP routes a router can advertise, or the maximum number of routes that will fit in a RIPv1 / RIPv2 packet? – Mike Pennington Jan 30 '14 at 20:09
  • Hi Mike, I am Particularly Asking about Maximum Number of Routes that will fit in a RIPv1 / RIPv2 Packet ? – user3146180 Jan 30 '14 at 20:11
  • This is not hard to calculate, but may I ask why it matters? – Mike Pennington Jan 30 '14 at 20:13
  • RIP is Very Limited and I would like to know about the RIP Packet Size and Memory handled by it, How much Routes it can accommodate in an update packet. – user3146180 Jan 30 '14 at 20:20
  • I Found the Answer, Its 25 Routes can be carried by RIP Update Packet. Reference : cisco.com/cpress/cc/td/cpress/fund/ith2nd/it2444.htm – user3146180 Jan 30 '14 at 20:40
