What is a difference between routing and routed protocols?

Showing Answers 1 - 11 of 11 Answers

Classes and objects are separate but related concepts. Every object belongs to a class and every class contains one or more related objects.

So what exactly are classes and objects and what is the difference between them?

A Class is static. All of the attributes of a class are fixed before, during, and after the execution of a program. The attributes of a class don't change.

The class to which an object belongs is also (usually) static. If a particular object belongs to a certain class at the time that it is created then it almost certainly will still belong to that class right up until the time that it is destroyed.

An Object on the other hand has a limited lifespan. Objects are created and eventually destroyed. Also during that lifetime, the attributes of the object may undergo significant change.

A routing protocol would be one over which routing information is
exchanged. A routeable protocol would be one which involves packet
forwarding by design (this is probably a rotten description).

Examples of the former might be RIP, BGP, OSPF. They allow routers
to build their routing tables, from which the next hop for packets
is determined. As such, they serve a completely different purpose
from protocols that can be called routeable. RIP is transported
over UDP.

Routeable protocols are used for lower-level transport of packets
on and possibly across networks. Examples are TCP, UDP, and IPX/SPX

Routing Protocols:- Example are RIP, BGP, IGRP, EIFRP, OSPF are the Routing protocol sends and receives routing information packets to and from other routers.

Routed Protocols:- protocol can be routed by a router, which means that it can be forwarded from one router to another. example ip and ipx

Routing Protocols:
                  Despite RIP's age and the emergence of more sophisticated routing protocols, it is far from obsolete. RIP is mature, stable, widely supported, and easy to configure. Its simplicity is well suited for use in stub networks and in small autonomous systems that do not have enough redundant paths to warrant the overheads of a more sophisticated protocol.

Routed Protocols:
                  TCP/IP Routed Protocols include information on ICMP (Internet Control Message Protocol), IP(Internet Protocol v4), TCP(Transport Control Protocol), UDP(User Datagram Protocol), Telnet, etc.

some of the answer are not correct those dont know the answer dont give because so many people read the answers they may get confuse routing protocols means the protcol which route the data like rip 1 rip-2 eigrp igrp bgp ospf etcrouted protocols like tcp/ip udp etc

The Protocols that is used by a router to send its updates to neighbouring router are known as routing protocols and the process is known as routing while the protocol that transfer our data from one network to another is known as routed protocol.For example RIP EIGRP OSPF are routing protocols while IP IPX are routed protocols

ROTUED= ip4 ,ip v6, appletalk, tokentalk, it's routed protocol it's just like busstand which define the route...

ROUTING= rip,igrp,eigrp,ospf it's just like bus

A routing protocol sends and receives routing information packets to and from other routers.

A routed protocol can be routed by a router, which means that it can be forwarded from one router to another.

A routed protocol contains the data elements required for a packet to be sent outside of its host network or network segment. In other words, a routed protocol can be routed.

Protocols used to communicate routing information between routers within an autonomous system are Interior Gateway Protocols (IGP), which are routing protocols, but not routed protocols.

Examples of routed protocols are IP and IPX, and examples of routing protocols are RIP and IGRP.

Routing protocol is used by routers to dynamically find all the networks in the internetwork & to ensure that all routers have the same routing.

Routed protocol is used to send user data through the established network.
