CCNP Multi-Area OSPF, BGP, Originate, and Route Redistribution

Hey, you, Follow me:


BGP (Border Gateway Protocol) is protocol that manages how packets are routed across the internet through the exchange of routing and reachability information between edge routers. BGP directs packets between autonomous systems (AS) — networks managed by a single enterprise or service provider.


Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) is a routing protocol for Internet Protocol (IP) networks. It uses a link state routing (LSR) algorithm and falls into the group of interior gateway protocols (IGPs), operating within a single autonomous system (AS). It is defined as OSPF Version 2 in RFC 2328 (1998) for IPv4.


Use this command to assign a default route for redistributed routes. Whenever you use the redistribute command to redistribute routes into an OSPF routing domain, Cisco NX-OS automatically becomes an Autonomous System Boundary Router (ASBR). However, an ASBR does not, by default, generate a default route into the OSPF routing domain. Use the route-map keyword to filter redistributed routes so that Cisco NX-OS generates a default route only for routes that pass the route map. Use the always keyword to generate the default route regardless of whether the default route is in the route table. Note The default-information originate command ignores match statements in the optional route map.

Route Redistribution:

Route redistribution is when you take a route from one routing protocol and inject it or distribute it into another protocol. By default, routers only advertise and share routes with other routers running the same protocol.
