Technical Summary This document describes an extension to the Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) protocol to allow a single physical link to be shared by multiple areas. This is necessary to allow the link to be considered an intra-area link in multiple areas. This would create an intra- area path in each of the corresponding areas sharing the same link. Working Group Summary No dissent reported (see PROTO writeup by Abhay Roy) Protocol Quality There are two implementations that we know of.
