Little OSPF Question

Hi,

I'm looking in starting OSPF.

I just get one problem with the static routes defined in the network by
other routers : I don't receive the information !

I coded in the MPROUTE CONFIG

AS_Boundary_Routing
Import_Static_Routes=Yes
Import_Direct_Routes=Yes
Import_Subnet_Routes=Yes;

but it doesn't change anything.

What am I missing ?

Any idea ?

:-) Laurent

If they are indeed static routes in the other routers, the problem may be
that the OSPF configuration in those other routers has not imported static
routes into the OSPF routing domain.

These options control what *your* MPROUTE process is doing with regard
to information it can obtain locally. For example, if you have static
routes to reach Guest LANs or HiperSockets networks the Import_Static_Routes
option will control whether your static routes are included into your
dynamic routing domain for advertisement to other routers.

You may not have missed anything... Perhaps your router colleagues can
assist with information about how their routers are set up (of course,
they already know what is being planned so are ready to assist, yes? :).

If the OSPF domain definitely includes the routes you expect to see, you
can issue NETSTAT commands that query the MPROUTE process for information
(check your TCP/IP manuals for details on commands and options available).
At least, your MPROUTE process should list other routers as "neighbours"[1],
and neighbours should be in a state such as "Full". Once you know that
your MPROUTE is joining the OSPF domain, you can use other NETSTAT
commands to find out what information (if any) is being exchanged with
the other routers.

Thanks a lot Vic,

My colleagues had to change « redistribute static » into « redistribute static subnet » , and now it works fine

Regards

:-) Laurent
