router rip version 2
offset-list 1 out 15 Ethernet0/1 network 184.108.40.206
access-list 1 permit 220.127.116.11
The administrator has configured an offset list with a very large metric. The offset list is used to change the metric of RIP update.
From the configuration, you can surmise that any update that passes access-list 1 will have 15 added in the metric. In Example 3-52, access-list 1 permits 18.104.22.168. This means that the metric of 22.214.171.124 is 16, which, to RIP, is an infinite metric; upon receiving it, R2 will reject it.
To verify this, run the debug ip rip command, as demonstrated in Example 3-53.
