  1. Hi, Rene

    I hope you are doing great.

    I have one question:

    - why are you using the command network in order to auto discover the neighbors If you are statically defining them with the command neighbors ?

    Have a great day.

  2. Hi Hussein,

    If you configure the neighbor command on the hub then the spoke routers will receive it and a neighbor adjacency will be formed.


  3. Hi Rene,

    Nice article.

    But OSPF network types are still a confusing topic after going through your articles. Is it possible to simplify things with a single post where you can update the differences and purpose of different network types. ?

  4. Hi Ajith,

    Thanks, this can be pretty confusing. Most of these network types were used for certain types of networks like hub-and-spoke frame relay with or without broadcast capability.

    On regular Ethernet interfaces you don’t really have to bother with choosing different OSPF network types. One of the few protocols where you still have to think about this is DMVPN, which also offers a hub and spoke topology like frame-relay.
