Configuring OSPF on Ethernet int v. Serial int

Is there a major difference between configuring OSPF on Ethernet interfaces v. Serial interfaces? I've been trying to work through some OSPF labs and I can't seem to send packets from the serial ports to the Ethernet ports all configured with OSPF. I know mostly WAN protocols are configured on serial ports, but I would think it would matter too much. If anyone has any thoughts or general input on OSPF I'd appreciate it, thanks!

    Probably made an error that you overlooked, like accidentally forgetting a route to add to the routing table or something like that. Just doublecheck your configurations make sure you have all the networks that you need to the table added

    If you could show us your topology or configuration that would help us help you better

    Have you looked in the routing table if there is a connected route for that subnet? Also check that the interface line and protocol status is up.
