Hi there,

does anyone know if there's an implementation of the RIP version 2 
routing protocol in FreeBSD???

I would like to use it to exchange routes with my Cisco 857W router as 
the BSD machine will provide routing for a virtual test network in VBox.

I did check out the handbook for the enable_routerd="YES" and have used 
that before as default gateway of 'last-resort' with NAT but never RIP 
as don't wana use NAT in this case.

OpenBSD definitely has it but since am more familiar with FreeBSD I 
thought let's try here first :-)

Can anyone help me out?
