basic/weird ospf question- ospf gurus need help!!!

hi group,

i got a weird one with ospf. i setup ospf on two core switches dual connected to two routers (the core routers do not have a connection) all running ospf. when i do a show ip route ospf on the routers, the only routes it sees are the directly connected interfaces. (no ospf routes are learned) UNLESS i specifically make all the interfaces of the routers ospf interfaces

ex. (no ospf routes are learned if I use this config)

routerA: router ospf 1 network area 1


if I use

routerA: router ospf 1 network area 1 (basically means all interfaces, i think)

ospf routes are learned!!

You have not described your network in detail however it appears that you have 'discovered' a bit about how ospf on cisco works.

Have you looked at the ospf section of the IOS Configuration Guide?

The network statement is used to specify which interfaces to include in the ospf process.
