OSPF: Can I put 2 connected WAN routers under area 0?

I have the following static route configuration:

my remote router is connected to:

loopback:10.178.201.254/30

10.178.202.0/24(vlan1)

10.178.203.0/24(vlan2)

serial0:10.178.222.254/30

ISDN0:10.178.222.251/30

my central router is connected to:

loopback:192.168.1.254/30

10.178.223.0/24

serial0:10.178.222.253/30

ISDN0:10.178.222.252/30

the central router has static routes to many 10.178.0.0 subnets.

I intend to use OSPF, can I put the 2 routers under area 0 for network 10.0.0.0 on both side? Should I leave the BRI interface as static, or put the ip ospf demand circuit command onto it and run OSPF as well?

Thank you.

Re: OSPF: Can I put 2 connected WAN routers under area 0?

Yes, you can place both serials into area 0.

Ospf demand circuit is much more flexible then static routes but I know a lot of people that use statics with a higher admin distance to pick up the backup. Each have thier strengths.

Hope this helps,

Don
