zebra/ospf issue

  • From: Josh Gentry
  • Date: Fri Feb 08 01:40:12 2002


I'm experimenting with using Zebra running on a Debian box to do OSPF with
the Ciscos on our network.  The zebra box has 2 interfaces, each in a
different area.  This is the first time we have tried to impliment
multiple areas on our network.  Right now, area 51 consists only of the
zebra box and a Cisco 2500, and is just for testing.

The zebra box is forming a full adjacency with the Cisco in area 51 with
no problems.  It will not, however, become fully adjacent with the DR and
BDR in area 0.  This seems to be preventing the distrobution of routes to
the zebra box.

Distrobution of routes in area 51 works fine.

Here is my config, minus auth info.

Any insight would be appreciated.  Thanks.
