I haven't seen anything about ECMP in the RIPv2 RFC.

Is it possible to use ECMP with RIP?

    That depends on the vendor. For example, you can do that with Cisco by using the maximum-paths command.

  • RIP likely requires customizing the path costs to match the routes from other sources. If that's possible ECMP should work.

While it is not part of the RFC, some vendors support ECMP with RIP. For example, Cisco supports ECMP with RIP by using the maximum-paths command.

Other vendors may or may not support ECMP with RIP. For example, some (off-topic) consumer-grade routers can use RIP, but I have not seen any that can do ECMP.

You need to check with your router vendor to see if your router supports it.
