Flashcards in Routes Deck (15)
What are the ways a router knows where to forward traffic?
What is the default route?
Used when no networks are found in routing table
You assign a device to a default route to handle the packet
What is the routing table?
A list of networks that a router uses to forward packets
What is a Dynamic Routing Protocol?
Routers share information about networks and reachability to other routers (IGP/EGP)
What is IGP?
Interior Gateway Protocol
What are the types of IGP?
OSPF, IS-IS - Link State
EIGRP, RIPv2 - Distance Vector
What is OSPF?
Open Shortest Path First
What is EIGRP?
Enhanced Interior Gateway Protocol
Distance vector + Link-State hybrid
What is RIP?
Routing Information Protocol
Lowest hop count
What is Link State vs Distance Vector?
Link State (faster convergence) is a broadcast announcement of a particular network
Distance Vector (less reliable) is a statement of a reachable network
What is convergence?
The state of all routers having the same topology about the network in which they operate
What is EGP?
Exterior Gateway Protocol
What are the types of EGP?
What is BGP?
Boarder Gateway Protocol
