RIP Listeners on Windows 2000 SERVER
Posted on 2004-09-24
I have just installed RIP on a network with 5 subnets. It works well. However, I'm completely unclear about RIP Listeners on Win 2k SERVERS.
All the machines are Win2k PRO (SP4+), XP PRO (SP1) or Win2k SERVER (SP4+). There are NO windows 95/98/ME or NT machines.
I've installed RIP Listeners on all WinXP and Win 2k PRO, but the same option is not available on Win 2k SERVERS.
I don't understand why win2k SERVER is different to the PRO version, or how I can get RIP running on the SERVERS.
Could some one help me with the following:
1. Why is RIP Listener not available for installation on Win2k Server ?
2. Do I need it installed on Win2k Servers ?
3. Does this mean I need to use RRAS on all the WIn 2k SERVERS
4. How do I make sure that RIP is running on Win 2k SERVERS.
5. Why am I confused !
