Release Information

Command introduced before JunosE Release 7.1.0.

Description

Enables BGP to advertise a default route (0.0.0.0/0) if the default route exists in the IP routing table. If the default route does not exist, you must configure it using the ip route command.

When you issue this command in the route-target address family, BGP advertises the Default-RT-MEM-NLRI route (0:0:0/0)

For IS-IS, OSPF, and RIP, configures a default route for the distribution of default information into the respective routing domain. IS-IS creates the default route (0.0.0.0/0) if it does not exist in the IP routing table. OSPF and RIP do not create the default route unless you use the always option.

For all protocols, the no version disables advertisement of the default route. The syntax varies with the protocol.
