® transit-area-id— The OSPF area ID of the area connecting the two ABRs that the virtual link will cross. This value can be entered as a decimal number in the range of 0 to 4,294,967,295 or in IP address form in the range 0.0.0.0 to 255.255.255.255. The transit area cannot be a stub area.
® router-id— OSPF router ID of the router at the remote end of the virtual link.
® seconds— The range of values is 1-8192 seconds. The default value is 5 seconds.
Purpose: When a router advertises a link-state advertisement (LSA) over a virtual link, the LSA is added to a retransmission list for the virtual link. The LSA will be retransmitted until the LSA is acknowledged. The number of seconds between the advertisements is called the retransmit interval.
