RE: Cisco and Juniper Inter-Operability Issues ???
The OSPF issues with Junos have been long fixed, although they were once quite nasty. - Daniel Golding -----Original Message----- From: [email protected] [mailto:[email protected]]On Behalf Of John Kristoff Sent: Friday, August 31, 2001 4:59 PM To: [email protected] Subject: Re: Cisco and Juniper Inter-Operability Issues ???

I haven't seen any OSPF compatibility problems, including the use of authentication and changes in the default reference-bandwidth between Junipers and Cisco. Tested using JunOS 4.4 and 4.3. As far as the OC3c goes, You may want to preconfigure all the VPIs you'll ever have in advance if you can. Anytime you reconfigure them, the Juniper does a reset of the SAR to reallocate memory to the VPIs. This will cause all your ATM circuits on that interface to bounce. If you setup your peers under a BGP group statement, you will also need a 'peer-as' statement at the group level. You can give it a bogus/private one there just to satisfy the config. I don't think they have fixed this wasn't fixed as of JunOS 4.4. And finally, 'commit confirmed' is your friend. :-) John
