How to set up basic OSPF

Not applicable

Hey all,

I am fairly new to the PAN world and completely new to dynamic routing.  I was wondering if anyone would be able to point me to a decent guide/walkthrough of setting up OSPF.  So that you have an idea of what I am working with, my basic setup is below.

We have 5 sites total, each has a connection to the internet and a private MPLS network.  Inter-site connections go through the MPLS as their primary, but can fail over to using IPSec tunnels if their connection fails.  I would like to be able to run OSPF on both the MPLS interfaces, as well as the IPSec interfaces so that my whole network "knows" about each other and can dynamically change packet flow based on links going up and down.

Thank you,

The Admin Guide contains instructions on basic OSPF settings and there is an article on OSPF and IPSEC on  KnowledgePoint called "How to Configure OSPF through a VPN Tunnel".
