Dear respected peers and Gurus,
I've been racking my brains here. Doing an exercise and have managed to get full connectivity throughout the frame - i've added a seed metric and was just wondering if the frame "switch" is seen as totally transparent.
When i see the metric to the destination:
0 E1 172.29.136.0 [110/1582] via 172.29.136.3, 01:02:29, Serial 1/0
Now this cost would be fine IF there was only one link (running at 64K), but there are 3. 1 to the frame, 1 from the frame and the 1 over RIP on the Fa0/0. Now i understand that OSPF runs a default seed matric of 20 which would account for the Fa0/0 link - but what about the additional links in the frame-relay network? 100000000/64000 = 1562.5 + 20 = 1582, but there are 2 links...
Also, i can't for the life of me seem to summarize my RIP routes into OSPF. The spokes see the routes (which are 18.104.22.168, 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199) but when i try to summarize
R1(config)#router ospf 20
R1(config-router)#summary-address 188.8.131.52 248.0.0.0
I'm sure i'm doing something wrong. I would try to do it with manual summarization, but i know that the mask can't be less than the classful value (ie: /8).
Thanking you all in advance
