Jeff Doyle vs Debugs ..concerning RIP
Routing TCP/IP volume 1 >>> somewhere it mentions (i think while explaining simple split horizon) that a router send the RIP packet to its neighbor with a hop count of 0 and the neighbor receives the route and increments hop count to 1 .so router B would send router A an update about network 5 with hop 0. Router A would increment the hop count to 1 and compare it to the routing table. There router A finds network 5 as connected (essentially hop count 0) and discards the update
router A------------------network5--------------router b
DEBUGS>> however the debugs i see in the solutions on WB1 show that a router increments the hop count before sending it
question>> is this a cosmetic issue and doyle is right or is the router actually increasing the hop count before sending out updates??
