Open Shortest Path First Protocol (OSPF)

OSPFv2 is the IPv4 implementation of the Open Shortest Path First protocol. (OSPFv3 is the IPv6 implementation of this protocol.) Beginning with software version K.15.01, the switches can be configured to run OSPFv2 either alone or simultaneously with OSPFv3. (OSPFv2 and OSPFv3 run as independent protocols on the switch and do not have any interaction when run simultaneously.)
