OSPF Cisco Configuration
OSPF (Open Shortest Path First) protocol is a well-know routing protocol that is widely used today.To configure a netowork for OSPF properly there are some steps. For basic OSPF Configuration, the followin scenario will be a good example.
Cisco OSPF Configuration Steps
First of all, we will configure the routers’ interfaces. After that we will configure OSPF as our Routing Protocol. Here we assume that all the interfaces including loopback interfaces, their speed, duplex and descriptions have been configured.
To configure OSPF, follow the below steps:
1. Enabling OSPF Process
In the router A, we will enable OSPF Process, with Process Number “1“.
2. Adding OSPF Networks
After enabling OSPF process on our Cisco Router A, then, we will add our networks that will be in OSPF network with their wildcard masks.
3. Saving OSPF Config
4. OSPF Config on Router B
We will configure Router B like Router A. We will enable OSPF and then add OSPF Networks.
5. OSPF Config on Router C
We will configure Router C like Router A. We will enable OSPF and then add OSPF Networks.
