This textbook is a primer on routing in basic computer networking. It introduces route tables and how they are populated, static and dynamic routing, and routing protocols. Route summarization, discontiguous networking, hierarchical addressing, and the longest match principal are explained. The RIP and IGRP legacy routing protocols are examined as a prelude to discussion of the contemporary routing protocols for large networks: EIGRP and OSPF.
