An OSPF router has three directly connected networks; 172.16.0.0/16, 172.16.1.0/16, and 172.16.2.0/16. Which OSPF network command would advertise only the 172.16.1.0 network to neighbors?

  • router(config-router)# network 172.16.1.0 0.0.255.255 area 0
  • router(config-router)# network 172.16.0.0 0.0.15.255 area 0
  • router(config-router)# network 172.16.1.0 255.255.255.0 area 0
  • router(config-router)# network 172.16.1.0 0.0.0.0 area 0
    Answers Explanation & Hints:

    To advertise only the 172.16.1.0/24 network the wildcard mask used in the network command must match the first 24-bits exactly. To match bits exactly, a wildcard mask uses a binary zero. This means that the first 24-bits of the wildcard mask must be zero. The low order 8-bits can all be set to 1.
