If neither always nor permit-calculate-other is configured,

·         when there are active default routes of other processes in the routing table of the host, the device does not calculate the default routes from other devices.

·         when there are not active default routes of other processes in the routing table of the host, the device still calculates the default routes from other devices.

Modify the configuration on NE1 as below:

            OSPF 1

           Default-route-advertise permit-calculate-other type 1
