  1. If Susan in configured as area 1 stub, don’t you think LSA 4&5 will get blocked. Output of Susan shows correctly that it will allow LSA Type 3 for Inter area routes and a default route by the ABR Donna. Kindly check and confirm.

  2. Rene just a question, why is that cisco never put a default route in NSSA? why did you need to configure it manually? does is have a reason why they didn’t put it in default?

  3. Hello Mohammad

    A forwarding address in OSPF allows extra hops to be avoided in certain routing situations because it allows a router to specify another router’s IP address as the forwarding or next hop address address. So essentially, a R1 can tell R2 that the next hop router for a destination is R3.

    You can find a detailed description of forwarding addresses in OSPF and its uses at this Cisco documentation.

    I hope this has been helpful!

  5. hI,

    Finally we can see 3.3.3.0 on R1. But that is E2 route type right ?
    E2 means that came from type 5. How Type 5 pass through R2 which is NSSA ?

    R1#show ip route ospf 
         3.0.0.0/24 is subnetted, 1 subnets
    O E2    3.3.3.0 [110/20] via 192.168.12.2, 00:07:25, FastEthernet0/0
    O IA 192.168.23.0/24 [110/2] via 192.168.12.2, 00:07:41, FastEthernet0/0
    

    ===================================================
    I think R3 will create Type 7 request and R2 will convert back to Type 5. So R1 can update 3.3.3.0/24 route as E2 :slight_smile:
