hi everyone, i am running ospf with area 0 and area 1. There is an ASBR in area 0 which is injecting 2 routes 40.0.0.0/8 and 30.0.0.0/8. Now i want to advertise only 40.0.0.0/8 in AREA 1. how can i do that ? i tried area 0 filter-list out but it filtered only the IA routes, but in my case i want to filter the specific external routes so how can i do that, i know i have to do something on the ABR in ARea 1 but i dont know how so kindly guide me.

thanks

Hi,


This could be accomplished by issuing the command (Area 1 range subnet subnetmask) under the OSPF process of the ABR.

Ovais,


There is only two ways you can filter out the external routes.


1) at the ASBR itself.


2) by configuring a stubby or not so stubby area. Note that in this case all external routes will be filtered out from the specific area.

Hi Hritter,


Yes you are right, I was mistaken of saying command (Area x range) which will filter the summary-routes since the router in area0 is performing ABR/ASBR at the same time.


Apologize guys for misunderstanding the question carfully.

So wat u mean is that we cannot filter the specific routes on the ABR ?? is there any logic behind it or is it just cisco limitation ???

Hi illusion,


As Hritter pointed out, The command (Area x range) where x is the area ID will only summarize the IA (Inter Area Routes), In your case, you can filter external routes using (Route-map) at the ASBR.


For example: you are injecting 10.10.10.0/24 & 10.10.11.0/24 respectively, if you wanna filter the second subnet from being entered the OSPF domain, you just create a route-map when you make redistribution as follows:


route-map (inject-to-ospf)

match ip address 10


Access-list 10 permit 10.10.10.0 0.0.0.255


router ospf 1

redistribute (protocol) route-map (inject-to-ospf)


* With the above you can acheive what you are looking for.


PlS rate if it helps

(EDIT)


Dont forget the key word (Subnets) when you make redistribution into OSPF, this will allow OSPF to recognize Classless Subnet.
