You may conclude that OSPF is definitely more complex than RIP. To harness the power that this complexity offers, it is important to spend time in the analysis and design of the network. In many cases, the addressing scheme must be redesigned to support the hierarchical structure that OSPF requires.
OSPF is not a routing protocol to be taken lightly. However, the configuration commands are very simple. The work is in the addressing scheme and the design of the network, which requires old-fashioned analysis and design skills.
