OSPF Questions

Question 1

Question 2

Question 3

Question 4

Explanation

In order to become OSPF neighbor following values must be match on both routers:

+ Area ID
+ Authentication
+ Hello and Dead Intervals
+ Stub Flag
+ MTU Size

Therefore we need to adjust the MTU size on one of the router so that they are the same. Or we can tell OSPF to ignore the MTU size check with the command “ip ospf mtu-ignore”.

Question 5

Explanation

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 6

Explanation

The information available to a distance vector router has been compared to the information available from a road sign. Link state routing protocols are like a road map. A link state router cannot be fooled as easily into making bad routing decisions, because it has a complete picture of the network. The reason is that unlike the routing-by-rumor approach of distance vector, link state routers have firsthand information from all their peer routers. Each router originates information about itself, its directly connected links, and the state of those links (hence the name). This information is passed around from router to router, each router making a copy of it, but never changing it. The ultimate objective is that every router has identical information about the internetwork, and each router will independently calculate its own best paths.
