Routing Information Protocol
Last modified: Monday, August 09, 2004 

(n.) Abbreviated as RIP, an interior gateway protocol defined by RFC 1058 that specifies how routers exchange routing table information. With RIP, routers periodically exchange entire tables. Because this is inefficient, RIP is gradually being replaced by a newer protocol called Open Shortest Path First (OSPF).
