How to Set and redistribute a Static Default Route on a Cisco Router

How to Set a Static Default Route on a Cisco Router

A Static Default Route is used to provide a path to an external network, commonly an ISP or external network.

The syntax for a static default  route is quite simple:

ip route (destination IP address)

e.g. to point to a default route of then you you would use ip route
