OSPF NSSA (NOT SO STUBBY AREA)
WRITTEN BY RENE MOLENAAR ON�24 JULY 2010. POSTED IN�OSPF
You are the network engineer for a new service provider called "Mythical Bits". The routing protocol for the backbone of the network will be�OSPF. To reduce the size of routing tables the company decided they want to create a design with different OSPF types like the "NSSA".
* All IP addresses have been preconfigured for you, every router has a loopback interface:
Router Wodan: L0: 126.96.36.199 /24
Router Zeus: L0: 188.8.131.52 /24
Router Thor: L0: 184.108.40.206 /24
* Configure OSPF on all routers, configure the areas as specified in the topology picture.
* Router Wodan: Loopback0 should be Area 0.
* Router Zeus: Loopback0 should be Area 4.
* Area 4 has no direct connection to Area 0, solve this by using OSPF commands.
* Ensure you have full reachability.
* Configure Area 3 into a NSSA (Not so�stubby�area).
* Router Thor: add the following loopbacks:
Loopback1: 172.16.0.3 /24
Loopback2: 172.16.1.3 /24
* Advertise these networks into OSPF, do not use the "network" command to achieve this!
* Router Thor: configure a summary towards Area 0 for the 2 loopbacks you just created, make sure you do not advertise networks you do not have.
* Router Zeus: add the following loopbacks:
Loopback1: 172.16.2.2 /24
Loopback2: 172.16.3.2 /24
* Router Zeus: configure a summary towards Area 0 for the 2 loopbacks you just created, make sure you do not advertise networks you do not have.
* When you look in the routing table of Router Wodan you see some of the loopbacks advertised as /32's. Make sure you see the correct subnet mask that has been configured.
