If you have a lab and you want to connect to your SROS routers mgmt interface from wherever, you may know you cannot configure a 0/0 static route.  Want to get around it? Configure something like the below.

#### Don’t do this in production! Don’t do it if your lab is not secured ####

*A:r5>bof# static-route 0.0.0.0/0 next-hop 192.0.2.254
MINOR: SYSTEM #1505 Invalid static route destination prefix – cannot configure default route on the management interface
*A:r5>bof# static-route 0.0.0.0/1 next-hop 192.0.2.254
*A:r5>bof# static-route 128.0.0.0/1 next-hop 192.0.2.254
