    OSPF Area for this node. If the node is in more than one area, select AREA0. This field is used for design purposes only. It sets what the area of the node should be during a design, e.g., a greenfield design starting from zero links.

    domain file

    Accessible Area List

    Specifies a list of areas that this node can be a gateway to. This parameter is a constraint used for design purposes. The areas should be separated by commas.

     

    Vnet
