Well, if all you want to do is link a handful of known nodes together and
you have full say over how the routing will be done, you don't need routing
protocols. Static routing will work fine. I have sprawling VPNs across
several LANS all held together with static routes, no dramas.
However, if we're going to put together a larget network and don't want to
have to enter routes for every node/network out there, then we need a
routing protocol to do the job of working out how to get packets from A to B
(and C, D... Z, etc). :)
The issue at hand is choosing an appropriate routing protocol, and Dan's put
up some srguments for choosing BGP over OSPF.
