In the previous post, we discussed a lot about the OSPF routing protocol. Now, it’s time to reflect your knowledge in a network topology to enhance your hands-on skills. In this post, we will discuss step by step OSPF configuration. For this, we will demonstrate OSPF configuration using Cisco Packet Tracer. The same commands can be used to perform the OSPF configuration on GNS3 or real Cisco routers.
We will use the following Cisco Packet Tracer topology to configure OSPF routing protocol.
We assume that the IP address configuration is already configured on each router and PC as per the following table.
OSPF Configuration Command Syntax
Once you have configured the appropriate IP addresses on each device. Execute the show ip interface brief command on each router to verify the IP configuration. Once you verified the IP configuration on each router, proceed to the next section. [Read more…]
