OSPF External Routes on Cisco Packet Tracer

OSPF Area Types

As you know External Routes are the routes that provide connection to the other networks working with different IGP. And for OSPF Protocol, the networks routed by another routing protocol will be OSPF External Routes for us.


In this post, we will use the below topology. We will have only oe External network and this will be EIGRP network. The routes to that network will be OSPF External Routes.


You can check the below lessons for the configuration of different OSPF Area Types:


You can DOWNLOAD the Packet Tracer example with .pkt format HERE.

You can also check Basic OSPF Packet Tracer Configuration for Single Area.


Here, we will bypass the interface configurations and the OSPF configuration. Because in the previous article, we had configured them. Here, the main points will be the exceptional EIGRP configuration. Think about, all the interface and OSPF configuration is done.


We will also make Redistribution configurations from OSPF to EIGRP and from EIGRP to OSPF. Redistribution lesson is another big lesson. So we will talk about them detailly later.


Let’s check the EIGRP, OSPF and Redistribution configurations on Router5 and Router6.



Router5(config)# router eigrp 1
Router5(config-router)# redistribute ospf 1 metric 150 10 200 200 1500 
Router5(config-router)# network
Router5(config-router)# no auto-summary
Router5(config-router)# exit
Router5(config)# router ospf 1
Router5(config-router)# router-id
Router5(config-router)# log-adjacency-changes
Router5(config-router)# redistribute eigrp 1 metric 100 subnets 
Router5(config-router)# network area 2
Router5(config-router)# default-information originate
