Pre-Requisite: Routing Information Protocol (RIP)

Routing Information Protocol (RIP) is an active routing protocol that operates hop count as a routing metric to find the most suitable route between the source and the destination network. It is a distance-vector routing protocol that has an AD value of 120 and works on the Network layer of the OSI model.

Steps to Configure and Verify Two Router Connections in Cisco Packet Tracer:

Step 1: First, open the Cisco packet tracer desktop and select the devices given below:

S.NODeviceModel NameQty.

IP Addressing Table

S.NODeviceIPv4 AddressSubnet-MaskDefault-Gateway
  • Then, create a network topology as shown below the image.
  • Use an Automatic connecting cable to connect the devices with others.


Step 2: Configure the PCs (hosts) with IPv4 address and Subnet Mask according to the IP addressing table given above.

  • To assign an IP address in PC0, click on PC0.
  • Then, go to desktop and then IP configuration and there you will IPv4 configuration.
  • Fill IPv4 address and subnet mask.


  • Assigning IP address using the ipconfig command, or we can also assign an IP address with the help of a command.
  • Go to the command terminal of the PC.
  • Then, type ipconfig <IPv4 address><subnet mask><default gateway>(if needed)
Example: ipconfig


  • Repeat the same procedure with other PCs to configure them thoroughly.

Step 3: Configure router with IP address and subnet mask.

IP Addressing Table Router

S.NODeviceInterfaceIPv4 AddressSubnet Mask
Serial 2/
Serial 2/
  • To assign an IP address in router0, click on router0.
  • Then, go to config and then Interfaces.
  • Make sure to turn on the ports
  • Then, configure the IP address in FastEthernet and serial ports according to IP addressing Table.
  • Fill IPv4 address and subnet mask.


  • Repeat the same procedure with other routers to configure them thoroughly.

Step 4: After configuring all of the devices we need to assign the routes to the routers.

To assign RIP routes to the particular router:

  • First, click on router0 then Go to CLI.
  • Then type the commands and IP information given below.
CLI command : network <network id>

RIP Routes for Router0 are given below:


RIP Routes for Router1 are given below:


Step 5: Verifying the network by pinging the IP address of any PC.

we’ll use the ping command to do so.

  • First, click on PC0 then Go to the command prompt
  • then type ping <IP address of targeted node>
  • as we can see in the below image we are getting replies which means the connection is working very fine
Example : ping


  • A simulation of the experiment is given below we are sending PDU from  PC0 to PC2 and PC1 to PC3:
