Example 2: Virtual links

In the example shown in the following figure, area 2 is not physically connected to the backbone as is
usually required. Instead, area 2 will be connected to the backbone via a virtual link through area 1. The
virtual link must be configured at each endpoint.

Configuring OSPF for a virtual link on Switch A

Configure IP interfaces on each network that will be attached to the switch.
In this example, two IP interfaces are needed on Switch A: one for the backbone network on and one for the transit area network on
>> # /cfg/l3/if 1
>> IP Interface 1 # addr
>> IP Interface 1 # mask (Set IP mask on backbone network)
>> IP Interface 1 # enable
>> IP Interface 1 # ../if 2
>> IP Interface 2 # addr (Set IP address on
>> IP Interface 2 # mask (Set IP mask on
>> IP Interface 2 # enable
Configure the router ID.
A router ID is required when configuring virtual links. Later, when configuring the other end of the
virtual link on Switch B, the router ID specified here will be used as the target virtual neighbor (nbr)
>> IP Interface 2 # /cfg/l3/rtrid
Enable OSPF.
>> IP # /cfg/l3/ospf/on
Define the backbone.
>> Open Shortest Path First # aindex 0
>> OSPF Area (index) 0 # areaid
>> OSPF Area (index) 0 # type transit
>> OSPF Area (index) 0 # enable
Define the transit area.
The area that contains the virtual link must be configured as a transit area
>> OSPF Area (index) 0 # ../aindex 1
>> OSPF Area (index) 1 # areaid the area ID for OSPF area 1)
>> OSPF Area (index) 1 # type transit
>> OSPF Area (index) 1 # enable
