Hello Sandeep,


In order for 2 routers to form an adjacency with each other, they have to be in the same area.

For example:

If you have router-1 and router-2 (below) and there is a link between these 2 routers, in order for them to become neighbors, the 2 interfaces must be in the same area.


router-1-------------area0---------------Router-2

Or

router-1-------------area1---------------Router-2

Dear Sandeep,


Two diferrent non-backbone areas are necessary to connect with Area 0 for the communication. Neihgbor relationship can be happen within the same area.


Virtual-Link is the solution to communicate non-backbone areas:


For example:


R1 >> Area 0  R2 >>  Area 1  R3 >>  Area 2  R4


By default Area2 cannot communicate with Area 1 or Area 0.


If we create Virtual-link between R2 and R3. Then Area 2 can communite with Area 1 and Area 0. R3 become an ABR and generates Inter-Area routes to Area 1.


Regards,

Anser
