OSPF on MikroTik with LABS

This course guides you to have an in-depth knowledge of OSPF and how to configure it on MikroTik routers

What Will I Learn?

  • At the end of the course, students will learn how Link state routing protocol works
  • How routers with OSPF routing can form neighborship
  • How the DR and BDR are being elected, and what are their tasks in OSPF
  • How to configure OSPF on a single and multi-areas
  • How to change the election of DR and BDR in an area
  • How to configure authentication on OSPF
  • How to do load balancing on OSPF by adjust the cost metric
  • What are the different routers types in OSPF (Internal router, ABR & ASBR)
  • How to do the summarization of networks on the ABR
  • How to redistribute static routes, connected routes and RIP on OSPF
  • The difference between Inter-area type-1 and type-2
  • How to connect all OSPF routers to the internet by redistributing the default route to the internet
  • What are the different types of LSA's
  • What are the different types of stub areas
  • and many more with a lot of hands-on LABS
Requirements
  • You should have already hands-on experience with MikroTik
  • You should have basic knowledge about routing such as static routes & static default routes
  • You should know the TCP/IP model
  • You should have knowledge with IP addressing
Description

OSPF routing protocol is one the best (if not the best) interior routing protocol that many networks' companies use it. It has a lot of features and it is very reliable to be configured on our networks' routers as a routing protocol - that's the good side of the story.

The bad side of the story: OSPF is a COMPLEX routing protocol to understand and to configure. Many network engineers working with MikroTik products find OSPF difficult and many of them try to replace it with a simple routing protocol which doesn't requires a lot of IT knowledge such as RIP. That's the easiest way to solve the problem, but believe it that RIP will become a big issue and will cause for you a lot of problems when your network becomes bigger with many routers.

For this reason, I have planned to design this course to go fully into OSPF. During this course, I will pass through all OSPF topics & I will explain them in a very simple way then I will do a LAB on each of those topics to show you how you can configure this on MikroTik.

This course will have a total of 14 LABS based on a step-by-step to make it easy for students to understand each of the topics.

For the whole course, I will be using GNS3 emulator with the Free Mikrotik CHR license to be able to do my labs. If you are already an old students of my courses, then you may already know how to download/install GNS3 and make it work with the CHR image. For new students, I will have by end of this course a section having 3 more LABS to show you how to have GNS3 emulator working for you on your computer so you can follow the 14 LABS of this course. With this method, you don't need to invest in buying physical MikroTik routers to follow my course.

So in brief, you have in total a 17 step-by-step LABS in addition of my theoretical lectures that you can profit from this course - all topics and LABS are on OSPF only.

If you want to understand OSPF in the easiest way possible, don't wait to purchase this course so I can share my knowledge to you.

Hope to see you in my course.

Who is the target audience?
  • Anyone who wants to know how to configure OSPF routing protocol on MikroTik
  • Any network engineer who would like to deploy OSPF on his network with MikroTik products
  • Anyone would like to have knowledge in depth about OSPF as for the theoretical and practical part

"The instructor in this lecture explains the protocols in a clear and easy to learn approach. I enjoyed this course and look forward to doing more courses offered by Mr. Maher Haddad. Hopefully a course in the near future. MPLS on Mikrotik routers."

- Jarvis Caines

"Great way of explanation."

- Ledis Levendis

"Nice course and very informative. The practical part of this course is awesome. OSPF protocol has many interesting mechanisms of routing. The author of this course really helps to understand them all. The next step is BGP! Thank you, Maher, for this great course!"

- Dmitry Arnautov
