router : rip : config distance
 
config distance
Use this subcommand to specify an administrative distance. When different routing protocols provide multiple routes to the same destination, the administrative distance sets the priority of those routes. The lowest administrative distance indicates the preferred route.
If you specify a prefix, RIP uses the specified distance when the source IP address of a packet matches the prefix.
The distance field is required. All other fields are optional.
Variable
