A few hours ago, the last of the IPv4 addresses were allocated by IANA. Now’s the time to learn more about IPv6! Yesterday, I posted about EIGRP for IPv6, so I think I’ll continue the trend by introducing OSPFv3, which is the IPv6 implementation of OSPF
EIGRP allows you to tag external routes. That is, any route redistributed into EIGRP can be tagged with a numeric descriptor from 0 to 4294967295.
What’s this? More IGP redistribution? Yes. Yes, it is.
Since I didn’t do too well on the test, here are some more notes on IGP redistribution.
I guess we would eventually discuss routing IPv6. It was inevitable.
I continue to love shoving one IGP route down another IGP’s throat.
I love shoving EIGRP into OSPF and vice versa. It makes me feel powerful.
Feel free to correct all this stuff. Additions are also welcome. Study Questions How do I keep an area route from reaching a router in that area? You don’t. That defeats the whole purpose of having the topology database on every router. If you filtered…
I’m going further into OSPF with my notes on OSPF topologies.
