    Hi,

    I am studying CCNP BSCI and this is a question where I couldn't find an
    answer in my BSCI book. Basically, the OSPF totally stubby area is a Cisco
    specific implementation. If all routers in area 1 including ABR are Cisco
    routers, then there shouldn't be a problem.

    Now what if the ABR is Cisco while some of the routers in area 1 are not
    cisco? Will the totally stubby area still work as it ment to be?

    Thanks.

    The other routers don't have to be Cisco. The only thing that makes the
    area a totally stubby area is the ABR. Being a totally stubby area
    means that the ABR only injects a default route into the area,
    therefore the other routers aren't important. HTH.
