Routing Protocol Basics

This is part of the Cisco Notes series on Mike’s World News.

The CCNA exam covers 4 Routing Protocols.  Routing protocols should not be confused with routed protocols.  A routing protocol tells out routers how to find the networks that are connected to them.

We will cover more on each of this Routing Protocols in later posts.
