  1. Hello Chandrasekhar

    The auto-summary command restores the default auto summarization behaviour of the routing protocol. RIP Version 1 always uses automatic summarization. If you are using RIP Version 2, you can turn off automatic summarization by specifying the no auto-summary command. Disable automatic summarization if you must perform routing between disconnected subnets. When automatic summarization is off, subnets are advertised. Note that this is

This method of handling database entries reduces the number of entries in the database because each child route is not listed in an entry, and the aggregate entry

However, once you reinstate the summary route, after a certain amount of time, the poison reverse message will have timed out, this is how it should function. During the time that the networks are still “poisoned” can you use show ip protocols and show ip rip database and you can also continue to watch RIP debugs
