How to Configure EIGRP Routing on a Cisco Router using Cisco Packet Tracer

EIGRP operates as an advanced distance vector routing protocol that offers the best features of Cisco’s distance vector and link-state algorithms in TCP/IP and Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) networks. Cisco developed IGRP (Internal Gateway Routing Protocol) using distance vector-type routing technology. The purpose of this protocol is that each router knows only the address (next-hop … 

 

What is EIGRP Protocol (Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing)?

EIGRP (Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol) is an improved version of the original IGRP protocol developed by Cisco Systems. Cisco-specific EIGRP routing technology combines the advantages of link-state protocols with the advantages of distance vector protocols. EIGRP maintains the same distance vector algorithm and original IGRP matrix information; however, considerations regarding convergence time and expansion … 

 

How to Configure OSPF Routing on a Cisco Router using Cisco Packet Tracer

Packet Tracer is a program developed by Cisco to configure computer networks in a “virtual” way. In this way, you can design a TCP/IP network in a virtual environment with this software before making sure it will work in the real scenario. An OSPF network can be divided into smaller regions (areas). There is a … 

 

What is OSPF Protocol (Open Shortest Path First)?

OSPF (Open Shortest Path First) is an internal gateway hierarchical routing protocol or IGP (Internal Gateway Protocol) that uses the Dijkstra link-state algorithm (LSA – Link State Algorithm) to calculate the route. It uses “cost” as a metric measurement as possible, and additionally creates the same link-state database for all routers in the zone. OSPF … 

 

What is RIP (Routing Information Protocol)?

RIP (Routing Information Protocol) is the first protocol developed and used to meet the increasing demands of complex networks over time. It is still popular because of its simplicity and wide compatibility. It is an internal gateway protocol or IGP (Internal Gateway Protocol) used by routers, derived from the XEROX GWINFO protocol and becoming the … 

 

What is VLAN?

VLAN (Virtual Local Area Network) is an important factor in the efficiency of an organization. It is one of the technologies that contribute to improving network performance and allows the division of large broadcast domains into smaller domains. In network topology, routers block broadcast traffic on an interface. However, routers usually have a limited number … 

 

How to Install Cisco Packet Tracer 7.2.2 on openSUSE

This video shows you the installation steps of the Packet Tracer 7.2.2 simulator software on Linux / openSUSE Leap 15. OpenSUSE is the name of a Novell-sponsored distribution and free project for the development and maintenance of a Linux-based operating system. Before the advent of OpenSUSE, the development of this distribution, formerly known as SUSE … 

 

Download Cisco Packet Tracer 7.2.2

Cisco Packet Tracer was developed by the Cisco team to enable CCNA and CCNP students to work on routing, networking, switching and more. Cisco Packet Tracer allows you to visualize what you are doing during network communication. In simple terms, it warns of network and routing problems. Students use this mainly for their work and …
