OSPF Network Question

Unanswered Question
May 25th, 2007

Will this work for an OSPF configuration?

network 10.1.0.0 0.0.255.255 area 0

network 10.1.5.0 0.0.0.255 area 1

In other words will the more specfic wildcard take priority ?

Thanks

I have this problem too.

Yes, while the wild cards are used to put interfaces into OSPF, they work very similar to a routing protocol, meaning when it makes its decision, the longest match will be installed. In this case when you enter "network 10.1.5.0 0.0.0.255 area 1" you will se a log message saying that the interface matching that prefix has left 0 and moved into 1.
