RIP Auth Profiles Tab

  • Network > Virtual Router > RIP > Auth Profiles
By default, the firewall does not authenticate RIP messages between neighbors. To authenticate RIP messages between neighbors, create an authentication profile and apply it to an interface running RIP on a virtual router. The following table describes the settings for the Auth Profiles tab.
RIP – Auth Profile Settings
