Configuring OSPF Virtual Link in Huawei (transit area)

In this LAB, I will show you how you can configure Virtual Link when you have a transit area.

A transit area is like what I have already explained, when you have for example area 2 connected to area 1, then area 1 is called a transit area because it has connectivity with area 0 and area 2 and the virtual link will have to happen in that area.

I have already configured OSPF on all areas, so we focus only on configuring the virtual link. To mention, once you need to configure the virtual link, then you need to use the router ids of the routers that will be forming the virtual link. For this reason, I have already configured the router ids on the routers are the following:

  • R1:
  • R2:
  • R3:
  • R4:

If we look to the routing table of R4, we will see that he does not see any OSPF route.
