About the Juniper to MikroTik Series
In the world of network engineering, learning a new syntax for a NOS can be daunting if you need a specific config quickly. Juniper is a popular option for service providers/data centers and is widely deployed across the world.
This is a continuation of the Rosetta stone for network operating systems series. In this portion of the series we will be covering Open Shortest Path First, OSPF, version 2 which is a popular interior gateway protocol (IGP).
You can find the first article of the series Juniper to Mikrotik – BGP Commands here.
While many commands have almost the exact same information, others are as close as possible. Since there isn’t always an exact match, sometimes you may have to run two or three commands to get the information needed.
Using EVE-NG for testing
We conducted all testing on EVE-NG utilizing the topology seen below.
|JunOS Command||MikroTik Command|
|show ospf neighbor||routing ospf neighbor print|
|show ospf interface||routing ospf interface print|
|show ospf overview brief||routing ospf instance print detail|
|show ospf database||routing ospf lsa print|
|show route protocol ospf||ip route print where ospf=yes|
|show ospf route abr||routing ospf area-border-router print|
|show ospf route asbr||routing ospf as-border-router print|
|edit protocols ospf||/routing ospf instance|
|set routing-options router-id 203.0.113.1||/routing ospf instance set 0 router-id=203.0.113.2|
|set protocols ospf area 0.0.0.0 interface lo0.0||/routing ospf network add area=backbone network=203.0.113.2/32|
|set protocols ospf area 0.0.0.0 interface ge-0/0/0.0|| /routing ospf network|
add area=backbone network=203.0.113.128/29
|set protocols ospf area 0.0.0.0 interface ge-0/0/0.0 interface-type p2p|
set protocols ospf area 0.0.0.0 interface ge-0/0/0.0 hello-interval 1
set protocols ospf area 0.0.0.0 interface ge-0/0/0.0 dead-interval 4
|/routing ospf interface add dead-interval=4s hello-interval=1s interface=ether1 network-type=point-to-point|
Examples of the commands above
This first command will show you all of the routers you have an OSPF neighbor adjacency with.
[admin@MIKROTIK-OSPF] > routing ospf neighbor print
root@JUNOS-OSPF> show ospf neighbor
This next command lists all of the interface enabled for OSPF as well as some basic information such as cost, priority, and network type. Juniper displays slightly different information such as area, DR info, and number of neighbors. Juniper does not have the concept of a network statement so interfaces explicitly configured for OSPF will appear here. You can optionally add the detail command on JunOS for more information.
[admin@MIKROTIK-OSPF] > routing ospf interface print
root@JUNOS-OSPF> show ospf interface
This command will list all of the details regarding the OSPF instances running on the router.
[admin@MIKROTIK-OSPF] > routing ospf instance print
root@JUNOS-OSPF> show ospf overview brief
This command lists all of the OSPF LSAs as well as some details about them.
[admin@MIKROTIK-OSPF] > routing ospf lsa print
root@JUNOS-OSPF> show ospf database
This next command will show all of the OSPF routes in the routing table.
[admin@MIKROTIK-OSPF] > ip route print where ospf=yes
root@JUNOS-OSPF> show route protocol ospf
This next set of commands will show you the area-border-routers or autonomous-system-boundary routers. We injected a connected route into OSPF to generate a type-5 LSA for an external route.
[admin@MIKROTIK-OSPF] > routing ospf area-border-router print
[admin@MIKROTIK-OSPF] > routing ospf as-border-router print
root@JUNOS-OSPF> show ospf route abr
root@JUNOS-OSPF> show ospf route asbr
