Switching between routing protocols

exkor5000exkor5000 Member Posts: 54 ■■□□□□□□□□
if for instance I issue the commands
R1(config)#router rip
R1(config-router)#network 192.168.10.0

and then I issue
R1(config)#router osfp 1
R1(config-router)#network 192.168.10.0 0.0.0.255 area 0

would the router switch from RIP to OSFP, or would it now use RIP and OSPF simultaneously?

Thanks

    Run both simultaneously.

    If the exact same network(s) are known to both routing protocols, then the one with the lower Administrative Distance will be the preferred route and placed in the routing table.

    Yep. In global config mode.

    OSPF AD is 110 and RIP is 120 so the lowest Administrative Distance will populate the routing table. Running multiple routing protocols on a router is wasting bandwidth and CPU memory.

    thanks for the feedback
    i know about ADs.

    actually a good way to remember them is by the acronym:
    EIORE
    90, 100, 110, 120, 170

    Thanks
