This article describes the Microsoft Internet Protocol RoutingInformation Protocol (IPRIP) Listener tool for Windows 98.
Transport Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) is a routablenetwork protocol supported by Windows 98. If Internet Protocol (IP)cannot find a computer on the local segment of its network (and it has noinformation about the location of the other computer), it forwards theremote IP address to the default gateway for IP address resolution.
The IPRIP Listener tool for Windows 98 is designed to provide informationabout the location of computers located on other subnetworks. IPRIPListener reads Routing Information Protocol (RIP) packets sent by RIPversion 1.0 routers to build a host-level route table. This table is usedto forward IP packets to the subnetwork or remote host.
This tool is not designed to cause a Windows 98-based computer to act as an IP router.
IPRIP Listener does not read RIP version 2.0 or Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) packets.
