Hi ,

Using default-network command is same as using default route propagation

It is configured in routing protocol process to use the default-network when a suitable route is not found in its routing table.

What I have noticed is that once I use this command as follows on router A:

Router A#

router eigrp 2


ip classless

ip default-network

I will get the following on router B:

Router B#show ip route

Gateway of last resort is to network

How would I interpret that?? If there is no suitable route found on the routing table use the last resort or if you dont have a suitable route to network use How can I read this sentence added after I used the ip default-network commad?

Yes network is the last resort for any route not in routing table.

Because this is router B routing table.

it is showing the route to reach default network is via .
