In ScreenOS, redistribution of default-route from BGP into IGP is not allowed



Article ID: KB15701 KB Last Updated: 25 Nov 2009Version: 1.0

Customer wants to redistribute a default route learned from eBGP neighbor into OSPF, but a type 5 default route LSA does not exist in OSPF database.

This behavior is by design of ScreenOS to avoid a potential route loop or null route.

To correct this situation, configure OSPF with the advertise-def-route option without the 'always' parameter. By not applying 'always', it will trigger the ScreenOS firewall to generate a default route in Type 5 LSA only as it receives a default route from eBGP neighbor.

For example:
set vr trust
set protocol ospf
> set area <area>
> set enable
> set advertise-def-route
