Re: pix & ospf


Sorry for the confusion. The PIX implementation of OSPF is based on the IOS implementation. What you are proposing is fine. As in IOS, you can also represent the area ID in a 4 octet arrangement. I realize most people do not do this so I am not sure why the docs use this as an example. Anyway, please do not be concerned with this example and continue setting the OSPF area ID as you have in the past. Hope this helps.
