A new Request for Comments is now available in online RFC libraries. RFC 3137 Title: OSPF Stub Router Advertisement Author(s): A. Retana, L. Nguyen, R. White, A. Zinin, D. McPherson Status: Informational Date: June 2001 Mailbox: email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com Pages: 5 Characters: 8140 Updates/Obsoletes/SeeAlso: None I-D Tag: draft-ietf-ospf-stub-adv-02.txt URL: ftp://ftp.rfc-editor.org/in-notes/rfc3137.txt This memo describes a backward-compatible technique that may be used by OSPF (Open Shortest Path First) implementations to advertise unavailability to forward transit traffic or to lower the preference level for the paths through such a router. In some cases, it is desirable not to route transit traffic via a specific OSPF router. However, OSPF does not specify a standard way to accomplish this. This document is a product of the Open Shortest Path First IGP Working Group of the IETF. This memo provides information for the Internet community.
