The role of routing protocols is to learn about other networks dynamically, exchange routing information with other devices, and connect internal and/or external networks.
It is important to note that routing protocols DO NOT send packets across the network. Their role is to determine the best path for routing. Routed protocols actually send the data, and the most common example of a routed protocol is IP.
Different routing protocols use different means of determining the best or most optimal path to a network or network node. Some types of routing protocols work best in static environments or environments with . . .
