Routes to the internet and OSPF

Answered Question
Aug 5th, 2009

Do I still need to have a gateway of last resort for internet traffic on each L3 switch if I'm running OSPF internally? All my core switches currently have a Gateway of last resort. We are using an ASA 5520 that is not configured with OSPF. Should OSPF be configured on the ASA as well?

I have this problem too.

If properly configured, OSPF should be propagating the default route. You can have your ASA run OSPF or you can leave it as is with a static route.

Great thanks. This leads me to another question, but I will make a separate thread for it.
