default-network vs. default-route

"The following command designates network 10.1.1.0 as the default network for the local router; Router (config) #ip default-network 10.1.1.0" What does it mean? Is it the same as default route? Why not use IP address but network address?

Re: default-network vs. default-route

Hi,

The command default-network a.b.c.d does the same thing as a static default route but it does an additional thing too. It propogates this 'default network' via a routing protocol. Now depending upon your needs you need to decide whether you want to keep the default network only on one router (static default route) or you want it to be propogated (ip default network) via your routing protocol.

Have a look at the following link-->

Hope this helps!

Re: default-network vs. default-route

Hi,

What if I used (Default static route) & I have redistributed it into the routing protocol by issuing the command (redistribute static)??

Thanks,

Re: default-network vs. default-route

HI,

THe routing protocols like OSPF and BGP will not redistribute the default static route with the redistribute command.

You would need to add the command default-information-originate to propogate this static default route via the redistribution
