I'm going through our routers and I see a prefix-list seq 5 permit 0.0.0.0/0 that is being used in a route-map, can someone explain to me what "prefix-list seq 5 permit 0.0.0.0/0" does/mean when used in a route-map?

Thank you,
Dave

prefix-list 0.0.0.0/0 just matches the default-route not all routes. So that prefix-list filters out all routes except the default-route.

what happens will actually depend on the action defined at the route-map level. when using prefix lists in route-maps the "permit" statement in the prefix list will tell the prefix list to match the specified route.

So when the route-map says permit the 0.0.0.0/0 route is allowed through. Probably the route-map in this case will specify a deny action and will filter out the default route.
