Route Policy Configuration on Nortel Passport

Hi Folks,

If anyone has an example of how to configure route policies on a Nortel Passport your help would be much appreciated.  I have a number of static routes configured on a Nortel Passport and am redistributing these routes into OSPF.  I really only want to redistribute a default route rather than the 10-12 static routes I am currently advertising.  I am assuming that some type of route policy configuration is what I need to do but I cannot find any decent documentation describing the process - has anyone done this?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks folks, I've figured it out.

From the Nortel Documentation;
1. Create prefix lists in Device Manager in the IP Routing > Policy >
Prefix List tab.
An IP prefix list is a list of IP networks with masks and a name for
reference. Using the MaskLenFrom and MaskLenTo parameters, you
can define the range in which this prefix list is applied to networks.
2.  Configure IP route policies in IP Routing > Policies > Route
Policies tab.
The route policy defines the matching criteria and the actions taken if
the policy matches. Prefix lists are used as an input for route policies.
3.  Apply IP policies

So I created a prefix list of
Then added this prefix to a route policy and applied it to the redistribute policy and then to the specific OSPF redistribution rule and it's working fine.
