Redistributing default route via OSPF

Unanswered Question

I have following setup:

Internet firewall--Head office router --dual links--branch router.

Between head office and the branch we are running OSPF for load balancing over two links.

All internet traffic should be passed through head ofice router- we can achive this by having a default static route at the branch. But since we are runnnig OSPF for load balancing purposes, we cannot have this 'default ' static route.

What is the best method to "inject" the static route to the branch routers with OSPF ?

Try "default-information originate" under "router ospf". Assuming you already have a default route in the routing table on the head office router, this will inject the default route in the ospf domain.

Hope this helps,
