Redistributing Default Route in OSPF

Filed under: IP Routing, ospf — ciscotips @ 3:15 pm

redistribute static subnets command is used to redistribute static routes in OSPF, However static default route (ip route…) is not injected in to OSPF topology database. IF you want to redistribute static route in OSPF, following command should be used with in the router ospf configuration.

default-information originate always

Incase you issue above command without static route being configured, router will inject type 5 LSA for the default route in OSPF topology database.
