2. distance vector routing protocol
3. DNS while resolving host name
4. TCP for congestion control

Distance vector routing.

Count to infinitiy problem is associated with DVR.And it cn be removed by the split horizon solution but still low convergence exist into DVR.
2
split horizon works only for 2 nodes , for 3 nodes , it might fail
0
who says it will fail for 3 nodes??

Snap from Forouzan. Solution to 3 node instability cannot be guaranteed by split horizon

Consider a simple graph with unit edge costs. Each node in the graph represents a router. Each node maintains a routing table indicating the next hop router to be used to relay a packet to its destination and the cost of the path to the destination through that router. Initially, the routing table is empty. ... to node $A$ at time $(t + 100)$ is : $>100$ but finite $\infty$ $3$ $>3$ and $\leq 100$
Consider a network with $6$ routers $R1$ to $R6$ connected with links having weights as shown in the following diagram. Suppose the weights of all unused links are changed to $2$ and the distance vector algorithm is used again until all routing tables stabilize. How many links will now remain unused? $0$ $1$ $2$ $3$
Consider a network with five nodes, $N1$ to $N5$, as shown as below. The network uses a Distance Vector Routing protocol. Once the routes have been stabilized, the distance vectors at different nodes are as follows. N1: $(0, 1, 7, 8, 4)$ N2: $(1, 0, 6, 7, 3)$ ... $N1$ in the distance vector of $N3$ ? $3$ $9$ $10$ $\infty$
