Migrating OSPF to the Palo Alto

L2 Linker

Hello. I am working on the initial configuration of our new palo alto's. These are not in production yet. These new firewalls will be taking over our vlan's (will be the gateway) and will be running OSPF. I will stop the ospf instance on the local router and migrate to the firewalls. I am following the "How to configure OSPF" pdf that I found here, but have ran into something that I can't figure out. All of our routers (four of them) are in OSPF area 0. When I am in the OSPF Area tab of the Virtual Router and I want enter the "Area ID" it must be in an IP address form. How can I add this to Area 0?

This is the current OSPF config of the router I will be moving OSPF from:

router ospf 12




redistribute connected subnets

redistribute static subnets

network area 0

network area 0

network area 0

I've attached a screen shot of what I am talking about.

What am it doing wrong here or not understanding?

Any other advice on accomplishing this would be greatly appreciated!

The area has to be entered as for area 0.

Thank you for the answer. Does this logic still follow if you were using area 5 on a Cisco router it would be the same as in the Palo Alto?

Yes...the format for area is 0.0.0.x for area x. Hope that helps.
