Practical Exercise: Routing OSPF

NOTE

Practical Exercises are designed to test your knowledge of the topics covered in this chapter. The Practical Exercise begins by giving you some information about a situation and then asks you to work through the solution on your own. The solution can be found at the end.

Configure the network in Figure 3-6 for OSPF routing using the IP addressing scheme provided. Ensure that both routers R1 and R2 have full connectivity to Routers R3 and R6 in the backbone. Use the ping command to ensure all networks are reachable. You must use OSPF as your only dynamic routing protocol.

Figure 3-6Figure 3-6 Practical Exercise: Routing OSPF

Practical Exercise Solution

You will notice that the IP addressing scheme uses VLSM and the serial links use the subnet 141.108.10.0.

The serial link contains a mask that is 255.255.255.252, or /30.

The following example configurations provide a solution using OSPF. This practical example is similar to Scenario 2-2 with the extra link between area 1 and area 0. This means that you need to configure two virtual links: one from router R2 to R6 and another between R1 and R3. This second virtual link is required in case of link failure or hardware failure from the Routers R1 and R2.

Configure the loopbacks with VLSM and experiment with debug commands to discover why IP entries are added or not advertised. Remove the second virtual link from R1 to R3, and see how OSPF behaves when the link between R2 and R6 fails.

You will find that because the areas are partitioned, you actually do need two virtual links to ensure full connectivity in any network failure situation. Example 3-62 displays R1's full working configuration.
