Just sharing what I have found. You don't need to use it of course.

Maybe I should be specific. I have a static internet IP address, have
had that for years. My JNOS does all the encap, it's not done on the
linux side. I have the so called classical configuration from SLIP
days, which I then moved to TUN a few years ago.

If I use the RIP client 'as is', it won't work. All routes show the
'tun0' interface', and nothing is reachable. I felt I had to make the
modification for my system to be able to use them.

You must have a different configuration then (or do you) ? would you be
willing to share it with us (including any rip entries in autoexec.nos).

I've never used RIP up till now, so I'm still learning.
