Can someone explain what is the purpose or meaning of "OSPF for Routed Access" in IP Base license for 4500 switch? I'll be installing 4500 switch for my distribution, and 6500 switch for my core.

I am worried if I will have a problem implementing OSPF between the two since IP base states it has "OSPF for roued access", while IP services supports OSPFv2 and v3.
OSPF for routed access is designed to allow you to extend L3 to your access layer. It supports one instance of OSPF and up to 200 routes. That said i have come across a thread on here where a person reports having many more routes so i'm not sure it is a hardwired limit but i would try and stay within that.
