Spelling: OSPF



OSPF, OPEN SHORTEST PATH FIRST

* OSPF, Open Shortest Path First [1]
* Salient features [2]
* Some links: [3]
* Local help pages: [4]
* Books: [5]

This is a link state protocol. There are various versions

* OSPFOS PF, OS-PF, SPF, ESP, USP, ASP, USAF, ESPY, ESPN, USPS, ASPS, ASP'S (Version 2), RFC 2328 [6] (indexed htmlHTML, ht ml, ht-ml, Hamel, Hamil, hotel [7])
* OSPFOS PF, OS-PF, SPF, ESP, USP, ASP, USAF, ESPY, ESPN, USPS, ASPS, ASP'S for IPv6 (Version 3), RFC 2740 [8] (indexed htmlHTML, ht ml, ht-ml, Hamel, Hamil, hotel [9])

SALIENT FEATURES

* OSPFOS PF, OS-PF, SPF, ESP, USP, ASP, USAF, ESPY, ESPN, USPS, ASPS, ASP'S can discover neighbors through multicastMultics, Multicses, maltiest, milkiest, mouldiest, moldiest "hello" packets. This
feature can be crucial in allowing new nodes to be added to the mesh
without requiring configuration changes to pre-existing nodes.
* OSPFOS PF, OS-PF, SPF, ESP, USP, ASP, USAF, ESPY, ESPN, USPS, ASPS, ASP'S supports a mode called 'point-to-multipoint [10]' where
routers [11] on a network (to use the RFC term for a subnetsub net, sub-net, subunit, sublet, subset, sunbed, sonnet, subbed, sunned, signet, submit, suborned, subvert, spinet [12]) do
not all necessarily have to be able to communicate directly with
one-another (See sections 2.1.1 and 12.4.1.4 of the RFC). This is
important to support 802.11 [13] running in IBSSIBIS, IBIS'S, INS'S, IBO'S, ABS'S, IBM'S [14] mode as
described in Layer2Assumptions
* Link state information is restricted to an area, area 0 being
special, namely the BackBoneBackbone, Back Bone, Back-Bone, Backbones, Backbone's, Backbite, Bacon, Backbiter, Backboard, Backing, Backbit, Beckon, Backbench, Backhoe, Jawbone [15]. Communications between areas must
transit the backbone. The backbone must be contiguous or 'patched up'
with virtual links.
