Unformatted text preview: tonomous system. This is called an interior gateway protocol (IGP) or intradomain routing protocol. The most popular IGP has been the Routing Information Protocol (RIP). A newer IGP is the Open Shortest Path First protocol (OSPF). It is intended as a replacement for RIP. An older IGP that has fallen out of use is HELLO-the IGP used on the original NSFNET backbone in 1986. The new Router Requirements RFC [Almquist 1993] states that a router that implements any dynamic routing protocol must support both OSPF and RIP, and may support other IGPs. Separate routing protocols called exterior gateway protocols (EGPs) or interdomain routing protocols are used between the routers in different autonomous systems. Historically (and confusingly) the predominant EGP has been a protocol of the same name: EGP A newer EGP is the Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) that is currently used between the NSFNET backbone and some of the regional networks that attach to the backbone. BGP is intended to replace EGP. 10.3 Unix Routing Daemons Unix systems often run the routing daemon named routed. It is provided with almost every implementation of TCP/IP This program communicates using only RIP, which we describe in the next section. It is intended for small to medium-size networks. An alternative program is gated. It supports both IGPs and EGPs. [Fedor 1988] describes the early development of gated. Figure 10.1 compares the various routing protocols supported by routed and two different versions of gated. Most systems that run a routing daemon run routed, unless they need support for the other protocols supported by gated.
