Configure dynamic routing — OSPF

Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) is a link state routing protocol and uses the shortest-path-first algorithm to find the best Layer 3 path. It is an Interior Gateway Protocol (IGP) and IP routing information is distributed throughout a single Autonomous System (AS) in an IP network. You can configure OSPF using both the FortiExtender Console (CLI) and GUI.

The current release only supports basic features for point-to-point network type over IPSEC tunnel and Area 0, and static routes and connected routes are allowed to be redistributed into the OSPF routing domain. Other features such as the network type, authentication type, multiple areas, stub areas, and summary-address, etc. are not supported in this release.

Tooltip
  • Other dynamic routing protocols such as ISIS, EIGRP, and BGP are not supported in this release.

  • Static routing, PBR, and OSPF apply to NAT mode only.
