|Page Name:||Reference: List of Routing Protocols|
In a town there are probably multiple routes, how to drive or walk or ride from one house to another. The route from one house to another depends on the addressing of the houses, but finding a route from one house to another is a totally separate task from the addressing of the houses. The same with network traffic. The way computers, programs within the computers, are addressed is important and an addressing scheme may facilitate or impede computationally efficient route calculation, but the development of routing algorithms is a totally separate task from the development of addressing schemes. There can be multiple routing algorithms for a single addressing scheme.
