hy guys,

we have a border router in our network who originate the default. the border is running ldp and it is positioned as a PE. the idea is that on the directly connected P router the prefix appears as tagged instead of having a PHP for it.

the configuration on the PE is :

router isis

net 49.0193.0231.0103.0055.00

metric-style wide

max-lsp-lifetime 65535

lsp-refresh-interval 63000

no hello padding


redistribute connected

default-information originate route-map Metric_Default

interface POS1/0

ip address

route-map Metric_Default permit 10

match ip address 15

set metric 10000

set metric-type external

access-list 15 permit

ip route POS1/0

You need to configure "mpls ip default-route" if you want to enable label distribution for the default route.

Hope this helps,
