routers ospf

- Ive configured an ospf network
- Ive added Loopback addresses
- Ive added 3 different Areas & one of them is the Transit router
- ive added a virtual statement on 2 of my routers out of 3.
1. im not sure if Im seeing what i should see when typing: "sh ip route" after virtual statements have been entered?  I could be seeing the correct output and just wanted to confirm!!
2. when I do a "show ip ospf virtual-links, im only seeing part of what I should see?
3. when I type: ping 192.168.224.2 from my sanjose1 router it is saying mismatch, why?

Without seeing the topology, the configs, and the output in question, it's impossible to say.

The virtual link needs to be between SanJose and Auckland using their router ID's.

i will have to setup your url and go through that.  I sort of get you but in my mind as the singapore router is in the middle I thought or at least this should work even if not the best way to do it.  to have a virtual link on sanjose1 linking to singapore. and as auckland is already linked with singapore, this would bridge the gap.

A virtual link is between two routers in different areas. SanJose and Singapore have interfaces in a common area.

hi donjohnston,

ive setup that url you sent me regarding virtual links.  One thing though Im only using serial connections although the example you sent me had atm as a connection, although I dont think this will make a difference for what im trying to do.

1. Why am I getting a mismatch as Ive double checked the configs and still cannot find the issue, saying that this was one of the same problems I had on my own config no matter what router the "virtual link" command went on?

ive attached configs if your able to look at them.

For some reason, it looks like Router 1's E0 interface isn't in area 0.

Can you post a "show ip ospf int e0" from Router 1.

but the details are in the config.
I can also ping every address on all 3 routers
ive attached screenshots for you to see
note:  the only thing I havent added to this is the costs.

I suppose I will have to take it as that as I understand the basic of virtual links now as far as this lab goes, although would have been good to look at the sh ip ospf instances to get a better picture.

although ive copied the url ospf network.  i was still getting the ip address mismatch although everything was still up and pingable.  so im assuming that there may well be something wrong with my routers or ios.  maybe i need to install it again.  so as a result when i did "sh ip route" i did not see everything i was supposed to, which could be because of this mismatch.  so im content that the other scenario i was given is correct and is another issue.
