If I connect two routers with OSPF in area 0 with the following statements
RTR A (has 8 networks b/h it) router ospf 100 network 192.168.11.1 0.0.0.0 area 0.0.0.0
RTR B (has 20 networks b/h it) router ospf 100 network 192.168.11.2 0.0.0.0 area 0.0.0.0
what I saw was that ospf would learn about the neighbor but no routes were added, so then I added ' redistribute static' to both routers and I saw OSPF type E2 routes appear on both routers, then I said 'redistribute connected' and the connected routes appeard on either router (no mystry there)
now the documentation says that a router with highest priority becomes DR on a segment (okay understood) but then does it matter if I only have two routes on a segment that who becomes DR and who becomes BDR?
also, as I understood from the docs that I've read, you can use a summary route to summarize the routes you are advertising, how would this be different then 'redistributing' routes via redistribute statemtns, is summariztion means faster convergence?
