    Was wondering if someone could help me out with this topic..... OSPF the famous dynamic routing protocol. I was wondering i know it uses cost as metric. What if i had this:


    R1----C2------R2-----C2---R4

    R1----C1-----R2-----C1------R3---C1----R4

    R# --- means router #
    C#--- means cost of link

    I want to know which path OSPF would choose and why?Shortest path or lowest cost????

    Thanks

    OSPF stands for Open Shortest Path First. It uses the cost of the link to help determine what is the shortest path.

    You seem to ask a lot of basic networking questions on here. Are you using us to do classwork for you or something?
