Configure a not-so-stubby area (NSSA). An NSSA allows external routes to be flooded within the area. These routes are then leaked into other areas.

You cannot configure an area as being both a stub area and an NSSA.

The remaining statements are explained separately. See CLI Explorer.


summaries | no-summaries
