Is it possible to have a PIX configured with OSPF, prefer a neighbor router over another neighbor router by using the distance command something like:

distance <AD> <neighbor IP address>

I don't see what I am looking for in the command line.

It is possible.

To Set the administrative distance for OSPF routes use the following:

Firewall(config-router)# distance ospf [intra-area d1] [inter-area d2] [external d3]

By default, all OSPF routes have an administrative distance of 110. This is consistent with Cisco routers. You can change the distance for intra-area routes (within an OSPF area) to d1. You can change the distance for inter-area routes (from one area to another) to d2. You can change the distance for external routes (from another routing protocol into the OSPF area) to d3. If you set these distances differently, the firewall can choose one type of route over another without comparing the OSPF metrics.

Thanks. Pls rate.
