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
0

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

In the world of WAN, QoS is a pretty important topic for most, if not all, networks. Some WAN technologies have QoS mechanisms built in, but others, such as some L2 WAN's, don't have QoS control in the provider cloud.
