OSPF E1,E2 and N1,N2?

Answered Question

I understand that E for External AS routes and N for NSSA External routes?

But can anyone explain difference between E1 and E2, also same in N1 and N2?

I have this problem too.

OSPF E1 and E2 routes are routes redistributed to OSPF process. Routes are redistributed in OSPF as either type 1 (E1) routes or type 2 (E2) routes, with type 2 being the default. A type 1 route has a metric that is the sum of the internal OSPF cost and the external redistributed cost. A type 2 route has a metric equal only to the redistributed cost

yes normally ABR router send the route learn from the external area to the local area... so when you are using the route with E2 then its indicating the cost of the destination from the ABR router but not from the internal router of the local area... but when you have E1 then update of the external route include the cost of the internal router to the ABR router as well as (or addition) the cost of the path from ABR router to the Destination route...
