Been looking for a comparison between OSPF v1 and v2, most websites only talk about OSVP v2 and v3 and the IPv4 and IPv6 conversation but I'm wondering what the difference is between OSPF v1 and v2 is? I don't want to shell out for IP services if OSPF v1 on IP Base will do the job.
Essentially I have a very simple network with a data centre at one end and a client site at the other and I want to run OSPF between them, would V1 be up to the job?
OSPF v1 is so old that nobody remembers about it,. and is not supported by anybody, if ever it was.
Please note without being offended, if you are the end user, it is recommendable you leave network design and implementation to a reputabler consultant, or certified Cisco partner.
