From network i made 10 subnetworks. But when i try to add any network address to RIP it always add

Router configuration:

Router(config-router)#router rip
Router(config-router)#version 2
Router(config-router)#no auto-summary

Ip routing table after configuration:

Router#show ip route
Codes: C - connected, S - static, I - IGRP, R - RIP, M - mobile, B - BGP
       D - EIGRP, EX - EIGRP external, O - OSPF, IA - OSPF inter area
       N1 - OSPF NSSA external type 1, N2 - OSPF NSSA external type 2
       E1 - OSPF external type 1, E2 - OSPF external type 2, E - EGP
       i - IS-IS, L1 - IS-IS level-1, L2 - IS-IS level-2, ia - IS-IS inter area
       * - candidate default, U - per-user static route, o - ODR
       P - periodic downloaded static route

Gateway of last resort is not set is variably subnetted, 3 subnets, 2 masks
C is directly connected, FastEthernet0/0
C is directly connected, Serial2/0
C is directly connected, FastEthernet1/0

  • That is not actually in the routing table as a route. Notice that there is no code next to it. The others have a code "C" showing directly connected. Neither do you have any routes added by RIP in the routing table. The only routes you have in there are the directly connected routes that would be there even if you had not configured RIP.

  • ¿And why does this happen? I thought maybe is for using Fast Ethernet interfaces but doesnt have any sense

RIP always adds the classful major network to the routing table. So if you were to:


It would end up in the routing table like: is variably subnetted, x subnets, x masks

So, working as intended. Just remember you only need to put that classful major network in the RIP configuration. And make sure to get no auto-summary in there so it registers the subnets.
