So, I have a triangular router setup here, 3 sites, all of them connected to each other via GRE IPsec encrypted tunnels. That works like a charm.
I have set up OSPF with all three sites included, each site has OSPF p2p channels open to the other two sites. That works as well,
But now we come to the problem: ALL remote distances are at 110, regardless what the real path is. regardless what the cost are to get there.
In particular I have 2 sites inside Austria and one site in Amsterdam. The network packets still are taking the route from S1 in Austria via Amsterdam and back to S2 in Austria even though there is a clear route from S1 to S2, but unfortunately OSPF declared them to be the same cost.
Is there anything I can do to change the route costs and to enable the Total cost? Even if all paths are the same (which they clearly are not, since the interconnect from S1 to S2 is 15ms, whereas the path via Amsterdam is 60ms) OSPF should prefer the direct connection.
