So I wrote about OSPF on RouterOS in my previous post. It was a nice experiment to learn about routing protocols.
I wanted to take it a little further and test Interoperability of RouterOS with other open source solutions.
This post is an update from the previous one and I will add OSPF neighbor nodes to the setup. I decided to use Quagga the most talked about open-source routing protocol suit and XORP the eXtensible Open Router Platform.
The following is the updated setup for the Interoperability test. I have added two new Ubuntu nodes as OSPF neighbor.
- Quagga on Ubuntu
- XORP on Ubuntu
The following configuration was added to Quagga node
The XORP node did not advertise any new subnet but received OSPF updates.
- All the nodes could discover their neighbors
- All nodes got route updates.
- OSPF Traces
