  • Enable RIP from GPO

    I wanted to know if there is a way to enable RIP listener from a Grp Policy for my xp pro workstations.

    Thanks to any responses.

    RIP? Do you mean Routing information Protocol?

        I don't think that's something that you can set via a GPO. The closest you'll get is configuring a startup script that installs the necessary files and makes the requires changes to the registry, then reboots the machine. Take care not to get into a reboot loop

          It's quite uncommon to configure RIP on clients.
          Can I ask what the specific reason is for such change?

          Also I'm not so sure if you can configure RIP on Client OS's

            we have enabled RIP 2 on all our server, routers and firewalls. We want to enable RIP protocol all the way down to the Clients. Windows xp pro has RIP listener as a component that you can install.
            I figured there might be a way to enable it through group policy

              Yeah but why on earth do you want to add RIP on a client?
              I really can't see any reasons for it. For me it doesn't make any sense. Clients should be clients and not routable network devices. Even on servers this can become a huge overkill unless the servers are functioning as a router.

              Routing should be done on the devices which need to route. You are getting quite a lot of traffic on your network when doing this.
              Also what advantage would you give this? Have you think about it why you think you need this?

              You are the first one who I see talking about RIPv2 on clients.

              It might help how your network looks like so a nice drawing might help.
              Also how large is your network environment

                I am kind of curious too about why would you want to do that.
                Although, the RIP listener service is available for XP clients I am just curious in what circumstances are you going to use it given the fact that you are thinking on using it in loads of client machines.

                    so our network does not have a single failure point. the routers and firewalls have RIP2 all the way down to the Client. Adds better redundancy.

                      Although I disagree with you because I'm sure there are other ways to get a redundant environment.
                      I don't think there is an option in the GPO environment. But let me know if you find one
                      Anyhow maybe this might help.

                      First of all it's an additional application which should be installed.
                      Per default it isn't installed so with a bit of luck you maybe could create an MSI package from it using something like WinstallLE (included on the 2000 Server/Desktop CD's)
                      This package can be deployed by using GPO.
                      As far as I can find any articles about it, there shouldn't be a lot to configure rather to open UDP port 520

                      Also (at least luckily) it will not send out packets, but only receiving it.

                        thanks my stance is that if your routers and firewalls are RIP2 enabled it is not necessary for the client to have it.. It is overkill.

                        agreed?

                          Well personally I think you need to review the network.
                          I've never seen, even in enterprise environments that the RIP Listener has been used.
                          That's why I wasn't sure that it was even installable

                          But in worst case scenario it might happen that a client losses the network connection.
                          Well if that is happening you probably have other problems to worry about
                          Also I think it's better to build redundant switches (for example) and redundant firewalls then using RIP.
