Hi all!

I'm totally new to Cisco ASA5505 and have a question regarding RIP protocol. My previous router simply had a "Enable RIP"/"Disable RIP" and the ASA has "a lot of options"..... I don't need anything fancy, I just want the ASA to work as my old router (which was enabled). What options do I need to check, enable and/or disable?

Thanks and best regards

Not sure exactly what options you're talking about enabling.  You can select version 1 or 2; I would suggest 2.  You can choose to advertise a default route to the inside.  You can make interfaces passive, meaning they won't speak RIP on that interface.  You can disable auto-summarization, which makes for a larger routing table, but I would  hope with RIP you're not talking about a large number of routes anyway. You can enable authentication to make sure you know who you're sending and receiving advertisements to and from.

RIP is very simple.  A basic configuration looks like:

router rip
version 2
network 10.0.0.0

Thanks! That was all I was looking for (the three last lines) :-)
