Hi there

I am confused with which routing protocols use an autonomous system, my study guides provide conflicting results for igrp and ospf

Can anyone confirm which protocols use an a.s.

    IGRP and EIGRP use autonomous systems and they must be defined using the router (e)igrp 10 (autonomous system number).
    Moreover , OSPF uses autonomous systems , but instead of these , you must define the area and not tha autonomous sytem.
    Areas are part of a whole autonomous system.
    An autonomous sytem may include multiple areas ,up to 4294967295 because area id is a 32bit number.
    For routing berween autonomous systems , we need an exterior gateway protocol , such as BGP.

    OSPF = proc. id
