Discussion :: EIGRP and OSPF - EIGRP and OSPF (Q.No.3)


A network administrator needs to configure a router with a distance-vector protocol that allows classless routing. Which of the following satisfies those requirements?

[C]. RIPv1
[E]. IS-IS

Answer: Option D


In this question, we're calling EIGRP just plain old distance vector. EIGRP is an "advanced" distance-vector routing protocol, sometimes called a hybrid routing protocol because it uses the characteristics of both distance-vector and link-state routing protocols.

Have confusion in distance vector and in link state protocols.

It's Cisco proprietary protocol and also a hybrid routing protocol. How can it supports in other vendors of devices?

EIGRP is now a open standard protocol so it will support to any other vendors.
