God help me !!
why virtual-link does not come up ??
In my lab,when I config the R1 s0/0 to ip unnumbered loopback 0 ,the virtual link would nto be up. why?
Can you provide the following details:
-show version on R1 and R4
-show ip os neigh on R1, R2 and R4
-debug ip ospf events on R1
-debug ip ospf adj on R1
-show ip ospf database router on R1 and R4
-show ip ospf interface on R1
and "clear ip ospf process" on R1
You tried with no ip unnumbered interface?. You tried configuring a ip address?.
I suppouse you checked the next link ?

I'm not sure where the answer in the other forum came from. I'm seeing that the source IP address used on the VL, is the loopback IP address as refered to by the unnumbered command. I'm seeing this working in my setup.The loopback IP addresses need to be known in the transit area of course.
Of course, I cannot guarantee it working in all operating systems, in all versions. That's why I asked more information.
I've just labbed it in Dynamips and it is working great.
