Hi,


One question regarding the OSPF process ID


"All routers in the same OSPF area must have the same process ID if they are to exchange routing information"


Is this statement true?


Somebody told me that it is false statement. any idea?

Anita,


Your friend is correct. The process ID of OSPF does not have to be the same.

Hi Mark,


if there are two routers (R1 and R2)


! R1

router ospf 10

network 192.168.1.0 0.0.0.255 area 0

network 192.168.2.0 0.0.0.255 area 0


! R2

router ospf 20

network 192.168.1.0 0.0.0.255 area 0

network 192.168.2.0 0.0.0.255 area 0


Can both routers exchange routes?
