Understand that Auto-summarization has number of advantages and it is default turn on in RIP configuration .

But , I cannot understand in the REAL WORLD , when we configure RIPv2 , why we need to turn off auto-sumarization ??? example :-  Router(config-router)#no auto-summary ...

I did go through below  article , I think below link tried to explain why need to turn off summarization on RIPv2 but I still cannot catch it ??

Can someone use simple way to explain why we need to turn off ( disable ) summarization on RIPv2 configuration ??
