OSPF

OSPF

(Open Shortest Path First) A routing protocol that determines the best path for routing IP traffic over a TCP/IP network based on distance between nodes and several quality parameters. OSPF is an interior gateway protocol (IGP), which is designed to work within an autonomous system. It is also a link state protocol that provides less router to router update traffic than the RIP protocol (distance vector protocol) that it was designed to replace. See RIP and routing protocol.

There is not much information concerning this area in the literature, therefore the design of a formal model of OSPF by using ACP has been undertaken, where algebraic derivations were manually performed so as to prove the correctness of the final outcome.
To see the individual paths to each ship, the ADNS CT policy router needs to extend its visibility to the ADNS border routers with which the ships' ADNS CT router establishes an OSPF neighbor state.
On the other hand, Link State Routing Protocol (OSPF) works on a more complicated algorithm as what has been mentioned before, where links' costs been defined according to the bandwidth of that link, and the routing table for the entire network will be set regarding to each node with it is neighbors.

In order to provide maximum redundancy and compatibility between nodes, the OSPF priority on each of the BN's LOS tunnel interface was left at the default of 1.
Both the scenarios contain hosts (workstations) together with routers using the Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) (IETF, 1998-b) routing protocol.
They discuss design challenges like data flow, selection of network media, IP allocation, subnetting, and configuration of VLANs and Layer 3 routed networks; advanced routing techniques using RIP/RIPv2, OSPF, IS-IS, EIGRP, and other protocols; and how to address requirements like static routing and route redistribution.
