My company sells a network device that was developed many years ago that supports RIP v.1. A customer is complaining that the device is responding to RIP v.1 broadcast even though he is not using RIP. The customer is using WireShark. We have created a new software version for this customer and removed RIP. I’ve been asked to confirm that it no longer creates any RIP traffic. I figured that this would be easy enough. I planned on digging up an old router that uses RIP v.1 and put it on a network with our device and capture packets. The problem is that I have not been able to capture any RIP traffic. (I am not having a problem capturing with WireShark in general.) I am using an Adtran NetVanta 1224STR as my router; I turned on Rip v.1. I’ve also tried plugging in several old consumer grade routers into the network that support RIP v.1 but I have not been able to capture any RIP traffic.
My lack of knowledge in this area should be evident at this point. I need to capture a RIP v.1 broadcast coming from a router on the same network as our in house device. Any help would be appreciated.
