We have the following network topology:
- MAN ring (4 6500 switches connected in ring) in OSPF area 0
- remote location with 3750 stack connected via two fast ethernet uplinks to two of the cat 6500 in the MAN ring - this 3750 is in the different OSPF area.
The question is: where should we have area 0 boundary?
1. On the remote 3750 - making it ABR router, and placing fast ethernet uplinks in the area 0 ?
2. On the 6500's belonging to the main MAN ring, placing fast ethernet uplinks in the "remote" OSPF area ?
Basically: should the remote OSPF area reach the core switches, or should it end in the remote location?
