CCNA – OSPF Questions 2

April 7th, 2015 Go to comments

Note: If you are not sure about OSPF, please read our OSPF Tutorial.

Question 1


A is not correct because configure EIGRP on these routers (with a lower administrative distance) will force these routers to run EIGRP, not OSPF.

B is not correct because the backbone area of OSPF is always Area 0.

C and D are correct because these entries must match on neighboring routers:

Hello and dead intervals
Area ID (Area 0 in this case)
– Authentication password
– Stub area flag

Question 2


The well-known formula to calculate OSPF cost is

Cost = 108 / Bandwidth

so B is the correct answer.

Question 3


D is correct because these entries must match on neighboring routers:

Hello and dead intervals
Area ID (Area 0 in this case)
– Authentication password
– Stub area flag

In this case Ethernet0 of R1 has Hello and Dead Intervals of 5 and 20 while R2 has Hello and Dead Intervals of 10 and 40 -> R1 and R2 cannot form OSPF neighbor relationship.

Question 4

Question 5

Question 6


To form an adjacency (become neighbor), router A & B must have the same Hello interval, Dead interval and AREA number.

Question 7


OSPF LSA Type 1 (or Router LSA) is generated by all routers in an area to describe their directly attached links. An example below shows this type of LSA:


As you can see, the LSA Type 1 uses the router ID to advertise itself ( or

The Router ID (RID) is an IP address used to identify the router and is chosen using the following sequence:
+ The highest IP address assigned to a loopback (logical) interface.
+ If a loopback interface is not defined, the highest IP address of all active router’s physical interfaces will be chosen.
+ The router ID can be manually assigned

Question 8


From the output of the “show ip ospf database”:


We can see OSPF Router ID will be used as source of Type 1 LSA ( & Also the router will chose the highest loopback interface as its OSPF router ID (if available).

Question 9

Question 10


The ‘network … area …’ command under OSPF process has the following meaning: It searches all the active interfaces, if the IP address of that interface belong to the ‘network …’ configured under OSPF process then the router will run OSPF on that interface. Therefore when we configure ‘network area 0’ command, all interfaces are matched -> OSPF is enabled on all active interfaces on the router.

    Ques: 6’s Answer is incorrect
    It should be A

    C is correct..as is apparent all routers (should) be configured to area 0.. now look at the answers A is totally incorrect because we are talking about OSPF not EIGRP. answer B also is incorrect because it mentioned a different area (1)..so we have to chose the last two answers by default.. although we couldn’t access the configuration then we have to guess that R3 have been configured in different areas.

    Ritu.. Q 6..

    A is not correct, there is no problem if the looback interfaces are in different subnets, actually they are in different routers and each router has its won network. check OSPF Tutorial in 9tut to see that.

    Where are the Question ?

    This link from 9tut.com (http://www.mediafire.com/download/q5dbz8mpn12j45n/CCNAquestions_Mar_2016.pdf)

    does not match up with above questions, refers to the CCNA- OSPF Questions in the above link

    or am i looking at the wrong link…

    Can somebody please clarify ….

    Has anyone had this question in the exam? I am asking as I have seen the answer be ‘ 4 ‘ and I have seen the answer being ‘ 8 ‘ in different dumps. I also saw depends on the IOS, was wanting to know if on the exam what is the correct answer in the exam
    What is the default maximum number of equal-cost paths that can be placed into the routing table of a Cisco OSPF router?

    By default max number of equal paths in ospf is 4. This can however be increased to 16. The keyword here is DEFAULT.

    Anonymous ,

    Did you get the default number of OSPF equal cost paths in your exam?
    I am asking as some dumps the answer is 4, some it is 8 , apparently depends on the
    IOS version. I am hoping if I have this question in the exam with the choices for the answer, there is an option for 4 OR 8 ONLY, then I can choose the available choice….

    Hi..OSPF is really the main topic of routing part in CCNA I think…
