    Network routes support more than two routers, with the capability of addressing a single physical message to all attached routers (broadcast). Neighboring routers are discovered dynamically using OSPF hello messages. This use of the hello protocol takes advantage of broadcast capability. An OSPF network route makes further use of multicast capabilities, if they exist. Each pair of routers on the network is assumed to communicate directly.

    The network tab displays the network name, impacted OSPF area, cost, destination and path type.

  7. Select Refresh to update the statistics counters to their latest values.
