Discussion :: EIGRP and OSPF - EIGRP and OSPF (Q.No.4)


What is the administrative distance of OSPF?

[A]. 90
[B]. 100
[C]. 110
[D]. 120

Answer: Option C


The administrative distance (AD) is a very important parameter in a routing protocol. The lower the AD, the more trusted the route. If you have IGRP and OSPF running, by default IGRP routes would be placed in the routing table because IGRP has a lower AD of 100. OSPF has an AD of 110. RIPv1 and RIPv2 both have an AD of 120, and EIGRP is the lowest, at 90.

I think 120 is the administrative distance of OSPF.
