"distribute-list out" command and default route suppress
Posted on 2006-06-13
The scenario is
SW E0/1 is connected to RA FastEthernet 0/7. RA is connected to the rest of the world.
RIP is enabled between SW and RA, since SW’s only connection to the rest of the routing domain is through RA, therefore it does not need specific forwarding information about any prefixes.
Configure the network so that the only IGP route SW sees, is a default route from RA
no passive-interface Ethernet0/1
distribute-list prefix John out Ethernet0/1
ip prefix-list John seq 10 permit 0.0.0.0/0
Here I am looking understand the concept for the command of the configuration above.
Since the command “distribute-list out” ,will suppress the network (0.0.0.0/0) from being advertised out the Ethernet 0/1,,,,Am I right ?,,,,this conclusion from the definition of the command "distribute-list out "from cisco :
"To suppress networks from being advertised in updates, use the distribute-list out "
If this the case that means I am going to suppress the default route, while the requirement is stating that SW should see default route!!!!!!!
