OSPF network types

Point to point:

Hello and LSA are sent to 224.0.0.5. No DR/BDR is required.

Point to multipoint:

This network types must be statically defined. The router treat frame-relay multipoint network like many point-to-point links. No DR/BDR is elected. OSPF packets are multicast.

Broadcast:

Hellos are sent to 224.0.0.5
LSA are sent to 224.0.0.6. Only DR and BDR listen to this address.
NBMA:

Neighbors are statically defined. DR & BDR are elected based on priority (which should be configured manually), and other tie break parameters. DR/BDR should be the hub routers. All OSPF packets are unicast.
