Hi,

It's impossible to not have ripd do authentication presently. The 
default is simple authentication (even if no key is set). See:

 	http://hibernia.jakma.org/~paul/patches/quagga-ripd-noauth.diff

which makes noauth the default unless authentication is actually 
configured.

It changes behaviour slightly though. In order to be perfectly 
backwards compatible we would have to extend ip rip auth, eg:

   ip rip authentication noauth

but that seems quite silly. Also, anyone who relied on simple being 
the default should just be able to 'write file' and have a 
forward-compatible configuration file written out, /before/ 
upgrading.

What say?

regards,
