Re: OSPF

Unlike, I believe, in EIGRP where you can control routes almost anywhere, within OSPF the control of this is at OSPF area boundaries. How this is contolled, is by certain OSPF configuration statements and/or the type of OSPF area.

If I'm reading your first question correctly, you want a non-zero area route updates not to leak out of the area, this would be accomplished by using a summary address (or addresses) that covers the area's internal routes. Area zero would not then see any internal area route activity within the non-zero area.

If you didn't want the non-zero area to see route updates from outside its area, then the type of area you would want to define would be one of the stub area types. The particular type of stub area depends on what other routes you want to allow to cross the ABR.

If you haven't seen it, Cisco's OSPF Design Guide might help: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/tech/tk365/technologies_white_paper09186a0080094e9e.shtml
