OSPF betwenn 7206 and Ascend MAX

I am trying to get OSPF working between my 2 Ascend MAX6000's and my 7206. Does anyone have any tips on how to make this work?




Re: OSPF betwenn 7206 and Ascend MAX


Other than making sure your interface MTU's /ospf network-type is set the same I can think of only gathering "debug ip ospf adj" from your cisco router which might show us what is keeping your router and Ascend box from going into a full state (if this is even the issue). If you can shed somemore light on your specific issue with OSPF between the two it might help us help you.

Hope this helps you,

Don, here is output from my router and the config on the Ascend MAX. A sh ip ospf neigbor shows none.I have all interfaces except fasteht set to passive. The MAX's are connected to the fasteth int via switch.
