Step 10. Configure an interface as NoRIP

Goals

TODO

The model

This step uses the same network as the previous one.

The configuration in omnetpp.ini is the following:

[Config Step10]
description = "Configure an interface as NoRIP"
extends = Step2

# RIP messages should be sent to those interfaces that a neighbor router is present!

*.router0.rip.ripConfig = xml("<config> \
                                <interface names='eth[0]' mode='NoRIP' /> \
                                <interface metric='1' /> \
                            </config>")

*.router2.rip.ripConfig = xml("<config> \
                                <interface names='eth[1]' mode='NoRIP' /> \
                                <interface metric='1' /> \
                            </config>")

Results

The RIP messages are only sent among the routers, but not the hosts.
