Example 352 The Offset List Has a Large Value Configured on R1 for 1311086024

router rip version 2

offset-list 1 out 15 Ethernet0/1 network 131.108.0.0

access-list 1 permit 131.108.6.0

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 131.108.6.0. This means that the metric of 131.108.6.0 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.
