BGP default route

I configured bgp default-information originate

but it not worked. Is there something more need to be configured?

Re: BGP default route

If all you want to do is control the redistribution of a protocol or network into BGP, then you are in good shape. Take a look at the BGP Technical Tips page if you are running into problems.

Re: BGP default route

make sure you have a default route some where on the config on the same router, having the default-information statment is like having a network statment, to work you have to have a specific route.

Re: BGP default route

Default-information originate helps in injecting a default route only if there is default route in the router.


Re: BGP default route

default-information originate requires that the router has a default route in the routing table ( If you just want to send a default route to one of your neighbors, you should be using default-originate on the neighbor statemenet, eg:

router bgp 65535

neighbor default-originate

This will send a defualt to your neighbor, which is most likely what your are tying to accomplish....
