What type of connection do you have with your provider? Can your post:

sh ip ospf neigh

sh ip route

sh run | inc ip route

If you see your ISP's router in the "show ip ospf nei" as INIT/DROTHER then it means that you hear its OSPF Hello packets but it does not hear or accept your Hello packets. Are there perhaps any special requirements for setting up your OSPF given by your ISP?

Also, when looking at your OSPF configuration, I suggest removing the "redistribute connected" command. It won't solve your problem right now but you should not need to redistribute anything in OSPF - just include it using ordinary "network" commands.

Best regards,
