injectiing default route into ospf

Unanswered Question
Feb 20th, 2008

Can anyone tell me how we do this, do I just add a static default route in and then add this to ospf by using the default information originate command, or would i use the redistribute static command ?

I have this problem too.

Both will actually work

With redistribution though you might be required to use some sort of route-map to make sure that you distribute only the default else it will redistribute all the static routes

where does the default information originate command get its default route from , and if it advertises a route, where is this from and too ?

Default information originate would advertise a default route as long as there is a default route in the routing table. This can be either received from another routing protocol or configured statically on the router itself

If you include the "always" keyword to the command, it will originate a default-route irrespective of whether there is a route in the RT
