In this lab we will learn to configure multi area ospf using cisco packet tracer.
In below Network Topology Diagram you can see there are Two area Area 0 and Area 1.

Now you have to configure OSPF such that devices in area 0 can easily communicate with devices in Area 1


multi area ospf lab

STEP 1:First assign ip address on each interfaces as show in above Diagram.

STEP 2:Now configure OSPF on Router R1:
Router(config)#host R1
R1(config)#router ospf 1
R1(config-router)#network area 0
R1(config-router)#network area 0


STEP 3:Configure OSPF on Router R2:
Router(config)#host R2
R2(config-router)#network area 0
R2(config-router)#network area 1 


STEP 4:Now finally Configure OSPF on Router R3:
Router(config)#host R3
R3(config)#router ospf 1
R3(config-router)#network area 1
R3(config-router)#network area 1


STEP 5: Now verify your ospf Configuration:

For verification go on middle router named R2:

Verify Route First:


R2#show ip route


Step 6:Now Verify Protocols running on the ROUTER r2:
R2#show ip protocols
Routing Protocol is "ospf 1"

IF YOU carefully watch the output you will find Two AREA Area 0 and Area 1 active on this Router.


STEP 7:Display ospf routing basic information

here you will also see the information about AREA in Details.



R2#show ip ospf
Routing Process "ospf 1" with ID
STEP 8: See OSPF Neighbors.
R2#show ip ospf neighbor


SEE Little More details suing below command.


R2#show ip ospf neighbor detail
