Configures a default route to be advertised by RIP.
Specifies to always advertise the default route.
Specifies a cost metric. The range is 1 - 15.
Specifies a tag number.
If always is specified, RIP always advertises the default route to its neighbors. If always is not specified, RIP advertises a default route only if a reachable default route is in the system route table.
The default route advertisement is filtered using the out policy.
The cost metric is inserted for all RIP-learned, static, and direct routes injected into RIP. The tag value is used only by special routing applications.
The following command configures a default route to be advertised by RIP if there is a default route in the system routing table:
# enable rip originate-default cost 7
