A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.
This draft is a work item of the Open Shortest Path First IGP Working Group of the IETF.
Title : Unnumbered OSPF Multiple Area Links
Author(s) : P. Murphy
Filename : draft-ietf-ospf-mlinks-02.txt
Pages : 23
Date : 23-Feb-01
This memo describes an option to the OSPF Version 2 specification
which allows multiple areas to share the same OSPF interface and
links. One area is always configured as an interface's primary area.
The interface's remaining areas are termed secondary and view it as
unnumbered. Two border routers adjacent across the same secondary
area may forward the area's intra-area traffic across its secondary
links. This option applies to standard areas, stub areas, and NSSAs.
It works over any OSPF interface. Routers with this option
configured are backward compatible with routers running the standard
OSPF Version 2 compliant implementation as defined in RFC 2328.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
