Trying to understand Routing Protocols

Hi I am trying to understand the routing protocols so if Running Ripv1, can Ripv1 advertise these network to other routers running rip .192.168.1.0/24, 10.1.0.0/16. If not than what should be match between routers. Network or subnetmask.

Thanks in advance. :)

    RIPv1 updates do not contain a field for a mask.
    An expert is a man who has made all the mistakes which can be made.

    It's really all dependent on the address/mask that's applied to the link connecting the 2 routers.
    RIPv1 is classful, so as networker mentioned it doesn't send a mask in it's updates and hence it doesn't support vlsm. If you want to advertise
    a prefix that's major network matches that of the inter-connecting link, you need to use the same subnet mask as the inter-connecting link. If you wish to advertise a route which major network is different from the major network of the interconnecting link, the router will auto summarize to the major network boundary.
    Networking, sometimes i love it, mostly i hate it.Its all about the $$$$
