This post is inspired by a discussion at Twitter with Ivan Pepelnjak and Nicolas Michel. Nicolas asked what happens when there is the same route from two different OSPF processes. Which one will be selected? Ivan explained how to use
In OSPF and other routing protocols we have something called forwarding address. This can be used to route traffic in another direction than to the router that originated the LSA. We start with the following topology. It’s a basic OSPF
Finished OSPF Vol1 tonight. I should know pretty much everything about OSPF by now. Here are some advice that I think is good when handling OSPF. show ip ospf data self-originate – Will show what LSAs the local router is
