Does anybody know what are the benefits of using the ip default-network command?

Re: ip default-network

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.

Re: ip default-network

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

Router A#

router eigrp 2

network 172.33.0.0

ip classless

ip default-network 172.33.0.0

I will get the following on router B:

Router B#show ip route

Gateway of last resort is 10.5.1.1 to network 172.33.0.0

How would I interpret that?? If there is no suitable route found on the routing table use the last resort 10.5.1.1?? or if you dont have a suitable route to network 172.33.0.0 use 10.5.1.1. How can I read this sentence added after I used the ip default-network commad?

Re: ip default-network

Yes network 172.33.0.0 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 10.5.1.1 .
