Spirent TestCenter : How can I create an OSPF Stub router device using STC?


Question: How to create an OSPF stub router using STC?

Answer: As per RFC2328; The Hello packet's Options field describes the router's optional OSPF capabilities.  One optional capability is defined in this specification (see Sections 4.5 and A.2). 
The E-bit of the Options field should be set if and only if the attached area is capable of processing AS-external-LSAs (i.e., it is not a stub area). 
If the E-bit is set incorrectly the neighboring routers will refuse to accept the Hello Packet

We can clear the E-Bit in STC device to make it act as a stub router.
