  1. Great explanation, especially definitive descriptions how P2MP works, thanks !

  2. Hey Rene Thanks for getting back. Sorry I did not frame my question correctly. I will try again ^_^.

    So I was trying to make topology diagram using the OSPF LSDB. I was not able to get the subnet mask for link R1 <–> R5. Then I went through the blog again and found this

    “R1 also has two stub networks, one to represent each of the point-to-point links shown above. Without these entries, other routers would not have routing information for the and subnets.”

    That’s what I was missing. I misunderstood the following LSA information with ST

  3. Hello Rene,

    I have three questions:

    1. Can you please explain what vertex means? maybe an example will help me understand the concept.

    2. When you start analyzing R2 and it LSDB, how you determine that R2 has two networks with the same subnet. I can see R1-R2 subnet is and LAN R2 is 10.12.0/24, as well.

    I got confused in this part:

    Link connected to: a Stub Network
    (Link ID) Network/subnet number:
    (Link Data) Network Mask:
    Number of TOS metrics: 0
    TOS 0 Metrics: 10

    I think the above entry in is referring to the R1-R2

  4. AM I right in thinking the T2 LSA is the one that generates the O Routes in the Routing Table?

  5. Mark,
    Since LSA Type-2s are only associated with DRs, your statement is correct for networks where a DR has been elected (network type Broadcast, for example). In other network types (Point-to-Point, for example), it would be LSA Type 1.
