The paper addresses the interoperability issues between Internal Border Gateway Protocol (IBGP) over other Interior Gateway Protocols (IGPs) by knowing the characteristics of the respective protocols and also studies the efficiency of External Border Gateway protocol (EBGP) as an Exterior Gateway Protocol (EGP). Furthermore, it shows how IGRP proves to be inefficient over other IGPs. Comparison of other IGPs and IBGP is made using administrative distance, metric, convergence and many more parameters in order to prove the loopholes in IGRP. The comparison of the distinguishing facts and features of these protocols has been tabulated for the steady reference. Demonstration through diagrams for different network architectures is being made. Description, the interoperability issues between them and the results with the suggestions how to make use of them are been presented. Practical implementation of the presented issues was done and was found that BGP should only be used for exterior routing and not for the interior routing.
