How to setup RIPv2 between 3Com 4500 and Cisco 2811?

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
I have a Cisco 2811 routing all internet traffic, and a 3Com 4500 layer 3 switch handling all internal traffic. There are static routes to handle everything, and all works well. Currently I am using static routes however and I'd like to switch this over to RIPv2 as I hear it is more "dynamic". I have enabled RIPv2 on both devices and declared which networks to listen for, but neither device is getting any RIP updates from anything else. All ip route tables show static or connected entries. What do I need to do to get this working between these two devices?
