Dissecting Routing Protocols in Wireshark

If you haven’t done so already, download and install Wireshark. Alternatively, you may use https://www.cloudshark.org/ (you may need to create an account).

Open up the Routing packet capture (.pcap) file. Compare and contrast the RIPv1, RIPv2, EIGRP, and OSPF routing protocols.

  • Which routing protocols use multicast and which use broadcast?

  • What are the multicast addresses used by the various routing protocols?

  • Is TCP or UDP used? What is the port number?

  • Are you able to find the autonomous system number for EIGRP in the packet details? How did you locate it?
