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?

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
