Occasions for Using a Default Route

The obvious example of a need for a default route is when connecting into the Internet or simply out of your organization's intranet. The outside world contains many networks in the routing tables of the systems that serve it. It is not necessary for your router to know of all the possibilities available; it must simply know that the door to the great outdoors will suffice.

Another occasion for configuring a default route would be for a stub network to connect to the larger network.

Both these examples are shown in Figure 10-10.
