I've just committed Vernon Schryver's <> new routed(8) 
implementation, which understands RIPv1, RIPv2, and ICMP Router 

The new routed(8) has some pretty spiffy new features, so you'll want to 
be sure to read the manual page.

A couple of people have asked, so I'll reiterate, yes it is possible to 
disable RIP if you just want Router Discovery.  The flags I pass routed 
in the systems in my lab at work:

	routed -P "no_rip"

You may also place configuration information into a file; see the manual 
page for details.

BTW, many thanks to Vernon and any other folks at Silicon Graphics who 
were involved in implementing this new routed(8) program, and for making 
the source code available to the network community!
