This chapter covers the following topics, which you need to understand to pass the CCNP/CCDP/CCIP BSCI exam:
Configuring OSPF in a single area
Configuring OSPF over an NBMA topology
Checking the configuration of OSPF on a single router
Troubleshooting OSPF in a single area
This chapter explains how to configure, verify, and troubleshoot OSPF. This chapter assumes knowledge of the previous chapter, which dealt conceptually with the theory and operation of OSPF in a single area. This chapter covers how to configure OSPF in a single area, which is the simplest design. Although this configuration does not exploit the strengths of the link-state protocol, it introduces the fundamentals of OSPF configuration. You can build on this knowledge in the subsequent chapters that deal with the design and configuration of OSPF in a multiple-area environment.
This chapter assumes your comprehension of the subjects covered within Chapter 6, "Using OSPF in a Single Area."
