The OSPF (Open Shortest Path Protocol) is one of the most popular routing protocols for IP Networks. It uses a link state routing (LSR) algorithm which is performed by every switch router mode in the network.
This lab should be considered as a basic OSPFv2 lab as an introduction to the configuration and operation of OSPF on Aruba CX switches.
This workshop introduces OSPF features relating to the use of virtual links and options for using encrypted password between OSPF neighbors for authentication. Other configurations involve the use of the 'passive interface ' command and the 'default-information originate' command.
The list of features presented in this lab is a very small snapshot of the OSPF features available within the CX software and a comprehensive view of all OSPF features available can be found in the documentation guides from the Aruba Support Portal.
