When a router running Routing Information Protocol (RIP) receives an update from a neighboring router, it checks whether the source of the update belongs to the same network or sub-network as the receiving interface. If they are the same, the routes are accepted for installing into the routing table. Otherwise, the update is dropped.
This situation is more common in dial-up environments when the ip unnumbered command is issued on one end and ip address negotiated command is issued on the other end, which can result in different subnet masks, although the addresses are actually assigned from the same subnet. This can also occur when connecting across a firewall which does not participate in routing but transparently forwards the updates between the routers connected to its various interfaces belonging to different subnets. This can also occur if RIP is used in Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) Virtual Private Network (VPN) environments over multiple Generic Routing Encapsulation (GRE) tunnels belonging to different Virtual Routing and Forwarding (VRF) tables on the router, and the same addresses are used as tunnel endpoints for the different tunnels.
If you issue the debug ip rip command, the error message starting with the text RIP: ignored v2 update from bad source or RIP: ignored v1 update from bad source is not displayed depending on the RIP version being used. This indicates that the source of the update is not on the same subnet as the receiving interface.
To resolve this problem, issue the no validate-update-source command under router configuration mode of RIP, which stops validating the source address and accepts the updates.
Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.
Make sure that you issue this command with caution since it may hide a real problem if the IP addresses on the routers are misconfigured. When using RIP over GRE tunnels with VRFs in an MPLS VPN environment, use unique endpoints as tunnel source and tunnel destination for different GRE tunnels.
Hi All, Is it supported for a fabric edge to also operate as a fabric internal border? We have a router that needs to connect to our network and based on its location the easiest place to connect it will be fabric edge. The router has a couple of net...
Hello,The http server web interface header is missing information that would be nice to have.The switch was like this during first log in.I did update the IOS/Web UI to Release 15.2.7E3 but same results.Here's a screenshot.
Hello, I own a domain name, let's call it mydomain.us, and I have a few hosts that are multihomed and have a public IP as well as a private IP, and I am trying to see if I can do the following on a Cisco 2951 router. If I want to use the same ho...
Hi Guys, I am unable to add new node to Cisco CTC. By following the standard node addition process (adding a node from File menu) I am unable to add new node to current CTC view. Any advise and suggestions are welcome BR,
I am trying to understand what the throughput capacity is for a vedge 100b GigabitEthernet port. Assuming I had a 1GB Internet connection terminated on a vedge 100B port, what is the maximum throughput rate I could achieve? I have not found an...
