Here's what I did:
1) Configured OSPF between a number of routers. Verified
all where seeing routes via OSPF.
2) Made the following config additions:
ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 a.b.c.d
ip route 126.96.36.199 255.255.255.255 a.b.c.d
router ospf 100
redistribute static subnets
where a.b.c.d is a valid next-hop
then did a show ip route on the other ospf routers. None show
the default route but all show an E2 188.8.131.52/32 route.
3) Removed the "redistribute static subnets". Did a
show ip route on the other routers. The 184.108.40.206/32
4) Added a "default-information originate". Did a show
ip route on the other OSPF routers and the 0/0 default appears
as an E2 route.
Cisco doesn't (apparently) treat a 0/0 route as a real route/subnet.
instance, suppose you have a default route defined on a router. Then
do a "show ip route 220.127.116.11". If you don't have a prefix which
covers this subnet, one might expect it to report the 0/0
resultant route. IMO, this is what it should do. It instead shows a
"network not in table" error.
