OSPF routing HOW does it happen
Posted on 2004-04-28
Basically I need a full example of a routing setup using OSPF to connect a computer thru 1 computer to another (or 1 computer to a router in this case), more details are below.
I'm trying to setup routing with OSPF because I had no luck whatsoever with static routing. I prefer OSPF because it seems more fun the NAT or the other protocols... This is WIn2k advanced server in Routing and Remote Access MMC console.
I have computers setup like this:
192.168.2.1 is the address of the NIC which is gateway: other computers are connected here. 192.168.2.108 is IP of the NIC which is connected to the Linksys router (the 2 are on the same computer). Linksys router is 192.168.1.1.
192.168.2.1=mygateway, 192.168.2.108=connection-to-router, 192.168.1.1=linksys-router,... <-->to WAN
gateway-using-computers would like to connect to WAN thru the first (192.168.1.1) computer.
How to setup the OSPF areas and interfaces, and static routing (if static routing is needed)??????????????? I can't figure this one out at all. I have no idea how to use destination and area together in which area, nor do I know how to use static routing (?????interface?????-destination-mask-gateway) and don't know if these need to be used together in order to make the router (win2k adv. server) a happy router.
Like which 'area' goes with which 'destination' and 'mask' and how many areas do I need etc. would be helpful..
So an example set of settings could really help me out here. thanks yall!
