Strange to support OSPF without supporting RIP

Answers and views expressed by me on this forum are my own and not necessarily the position of Aruba Networks or Hewlett Packard Enterprise.

Re: Aruba Switches RIP Protocol


When developing our L3 feature set, a majority of our customers requested OSPF as opposed to RIP for their campus deployments. The two protocols share little to nothing in common so adding RIP would be a separate development effort. If you would like to see RIP, I would recommend submitting the request to our idea portal.

This is so very late since the question was posted, however, this may help others who might have the same question.


YES, aruba switches do support RIP. e.g. 2620, 2920, 3800 series and more.

Hi Ahsan,

Yes the current ArubaOS-SW switches like the ones you mentioned support RIP.
But this post was from 2013, back then Aruba and HPE were not one company. So the post was about the legacy Aruba switches and as Madani stated those didn’t support RIP.

Hope this helps
