I'm trying to get a basic OSPF conneciton with a Nokia firewall and it's not getting passed the EXCHANGE state.
I've read around the issues with other vendor devices and tried turing off LLS using the 'ip ospf lls disable' command -and I've tried the 'ip ospf mtu-ignore' but still no joy, the neighbor state never gets passed the EXCHANGE state.
It seems as soon as the conversation gets passed the DOWN, INIT, EXSTART states (which I believe are all multicast) the two decices are unable to exhcange their DBD's.
Initially, the firewall guys weren't permitting multicast so we weren't getting anything. They managed to fix this so now we get further up the chain but still no FULL neighbor relationship.
My OSPF config is very basic as follows:
ip address x.x.x.x
ip ospf cost 1
router ospf 9001
network x.0.0.0 mask 0.0.0.255 area 0
so I think this may be a Firewall issue but just wondered if anyone had come across this issue with Nokia's.?
The Nokia devices are IP560's... running IPSO 4.1-BUILD016 and Firewall-1 NGX R62
Thanks in advance
