JSI Tip 0847. SP4 adds RIP support for Workstations.

Prior to SP4, RIP (Routing Information Protocol) was only supported on Windows NT Server.

RIP allows routers to share tables so that a client can use the best available route when servers were on different subnets.

Silent RIP is a passive mode that a router can use to listen for advertised routes without broadcasting it's own routes.

This implemnation of RIP requires that the routers be broadcasting with version 1 RIP.
