I am just getting into learning OSPF and have run into and issue.
In the initial setup I have R1,R2,R3 in backbone area. R1 has static default route towards the internet. R1 has its instance set to distribute-default always-as-type-1. With all routers in the same area all routes distributed properly including the default route.
However if instead I have backbone as the network connecting R1->R2 and then Area 2 as the network connecting R2->R3 the default route on R1 is not added to the routing table of R3. It shows up in the LSA of R3 as a Type External with R1 as the originator.
How am I supposed to get the default route from R1 into the routing table of R3 when R1 and R3 are in separate areas?
