This is a scenario I'm sure some of you guys have encountered.
I have two routers. Each one has a link to the telco provider. One is 10M (line1) and the other is 2M (line2). R1 is connected to line1, and R2 is connected to line2. They are backbone area routers.
The issue is the following: most of the LANs of our branches are learned through R2. But some routes are learned through R1.
I first thought it's a matter of OSPF costs. Both my routers are connected to the telco, so I thought that R2, when it computes routes to branches, finds that it's preferable to reach them through ISP PE2 (connected on line2) than through R1 (which has a better WAN bandwidth).
Telco told me to configure "filters" as they said :-), I thought of distribute lists and route-maps.

interface we use the VLAN tag to demultiplex the VLANs. The switch needs
to determine which MAC Address table to look in for a forwarding
decision. To do this we require the switch to do...

IntroductionOSPF, being a link-state protocol, allows for every router
in the network to know of every link and OSPF speaker in the entire
network. From this picture each router independently runs the Shortest
