What is OSPF hello packets responsible for?
discovering and maintaining neighbors

What is the purpose of a passive OSPF interface?
prohibits adjacency's from forming
How does a OSPF passive interface prohibit adjacency from forming?
does not send out OSPF hellos and does not process any received OSPF packets
Do DROther routers establish full adjacency with other DROther routers routers? yes or no
What command is used to advertise the default route to an OSPF domain?
When you set an interface priority to 0, what occurs?
removes the DR/BDR election immediately
What is a NBMA Non-broadcast multiple-access network?
physical link that doesn't support sending the same packet to more than one destination and same physical link is used to communicate with more than one destination
What is a OSPF P2P network type?
Point to Point connection
ex. serial connection
