OSPF [Ref1] is a link-state intra-domain routing protocol used for
routing in IP networks. Though the definition of the ABR in the
current OSPF specification does not require a router with multiple
attached areas to have a backbone connection, it is actually
necessary to provide successful routing to the inter-area and
external destinations. If this requirement is not met all traffic,
destined for the areas not connected to such an ABR or out of the
OSPF domain, is dropped. This document describes alternative ABR
behaviors implemented in Cisco and IBM routers.

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
