OSPF

In OSPF area 0 is the same as area 0.0.0.0, Am I correct?

Re: OSPF

Hello,

yes it is. Have a look at a previous post, which deals with the same issue:

Re: OSPF

yes, the both are same.

if you say,the area 0.0.4.2 and 42 different.

0.0.4.6 is qual to 1026

Ie.

00000000.00000000.00000100.00000010

Re: OSPF

Yes, they are the same.

Some vendors still use the standard form of area ID which is a similar notiation to an IP address.

Actually the standard OSPF area ID form is x.y.z.w and for the backbone area, this would be 0.0.0.0
