What you will learn

Operate and Configure OSPF on Routers with Complete Understanding and Confidence

All the methods and ways to run this OSPF

Troubleshoot various environment where OSPF is running

This course has all Labs which are needed for Practice of OSPF Routing Protocol


OSPF is known to be a Not-So-Easy Protocol to Manage and Implement- That's the reason this course has been Introduced. This course is All about Practical Implementation of OSPF Commands and It's features. You would learn why it is so popular and complex.

Open Shortest Path First is a routing protocol for Internet Protocol networks. It uses a link state routing algorithm and falls into the group of interior gateway protocols, operating within a single autonomous system.

I have used GNS3 tool to run all of the Labs in OSPF- It's very easy for you to Practice and rehearse all of its Labs.

I have added over 20 lectures in this - Almost covered all of its aspects. Good Thing is I will be adding more videos and lectures so that Students get the complete Benefit out of this.

This course is over 3 hours. It has been structured well so that you will slowly move On towards more complex Labs.

You would find OSPF being used in Most of the Banks and Companies due to its Hierarchical structure and area based approach and which makes it complex protocol.

But It has been made EASY now. Try it and reach out to me for any questions.

Well taught, logical and concise. I watched this whilst reading about it and this complemented my study perfectly. Thanks

This course was quite cool to refresh your OSPF knowledge. It was great to see some of the misconception around OSPF has been proved wrong by the instructor. One thing needs improving was to show the topology while doing the configuration as it was quite hard to keep the IP addressing in the memory.

Chapters feel a little rushed for a beginner and the volume is a little on the low side even with volume maxed

Great course for people who want to take more time for more in-depth explanations. The presentation is very much like being in a live classroom. Well worth it! Thank you so much Ashish :)

Overall the course contents are are very informative useful to clear concepts.... Good practical labs ....

The trainer is keeping it really simple and digestible to understand. The topic lengths are mindful and the course looks interesting so far. I am going to take it forward. Full course done and the things are quite sorted. (Kudos to Ashish, fantastic trainer!)

It was nice looking to the video.. very informative. But topology should shown periodically while explaining the commands, otherwise keeping the IP address in memory and imagining on which router and where configured is bit difficult.

This course is hands-down one of the most detailed--yet precise--technical courses I have taken, without any fluff. His Practical Labs are to the point. He disproves several assumptions I had, along with bad information forums have disseminated. I found his coverage easily broad enough to satisfy and cement theoretical CCNA topics.

Excellent. He gets to the point to simulate. I wish we can use a constant topology with the same interfaces to curb rebuilds. Other than that, great work.

Great Practical Experience, hands on scenarios. Pros & Cons explained well, overall Instructor knowledge is super. Keep it up Ashish

It gives me an understanding of the technology, and the basics to what I will have to learn and perform in the networking profession as a Network Engineer.

I have not worked in OSPF environments. I've read about it, but these kind of labs and explanations were what was missing.
October 25, 2017
Just the first two sessions were explained clearly, simply, without over complexity. Just the way I need in order to keep pace and lab myself.

It is good course. Though such courses are already available in market but the way instructor teaches is excellent.
