Interface parameters

To avoid routing errors, interface parameter values must be consistent across all interfaces. For example, set the same time interval for the hello packets on all routers in the OSPF network to prevent misconfiguration of OSPF neighbors.

  1. To change the OSPFv2 parameters in CONFIGURATION mode, enter the interface.
    interface 
                                           interface-name
                                        
  2. Change the cost associated with OSPF traffic on the interface in INTERFACE mode, from 1 to 65535. The default depends on the interface speed.
    ip ospf 
                                           cost
                                        
  3. Change the time interval, from 1 to 65535, that the router waits before declaring a neighbor dead in INTERFACE mode. The default time interval is 40. The dead interval must be four times the hello interval and must be the same on all routers in the OSPF network.
    ip ospf dead-interval 
                                           seconds
                                        
  4. Change the time interval between hello-packet transmission in INTERFACE mode, from 1 to 65535. The default time interval is 10. The hello interval must be the same on all routers in the OSPF network.
    ip ospf hello-interval 
                                           seconds
                                        
  5. Change the priority of the interface, which determines the DR for the OSPF broadcast network in INTERFACE mode, from 0 to 255. The default priority of the interface is 1.
    ip ospf priority 
                                           number
                                        
  6. Change the retransmission interval time, in seconds, between LSAs in INTERFACE mode, from 1 to 3600. The default retransmission interval time is 5. The retransmit interval must be the same on all routers in the OSPF network.
    ip ospf retransmit-interval 
                                           seconds
                                        
  7. Change the wait period between link state update packets sent out the interface in INTERFACE mode, from 1 to 3600. The default wait period is 1. The transmit delay must be the same on all routers in the OSPF network.
    ip ospf transmit-delay 
                                           seconds
