Just to make things more clear to me I would like to confirm something. I
would like to confirm the usage of the command " mpls ip default-route ".
Is this command to be applied on the router providing a gateway for other
Does this command act as a replacement for using a default route in the LSR
(P router) pointing to a certain destination as your gateway ?

Rodney already gave you another example, but I will give you another.
Even without PHP, say you have LSR that has only default route to a certain
destination. Unless you specifically instruct LSR to do so (mpls ip
default-route), packets destined for this destination will not be labelled.
Packets destined for "known destination" out the same interface will be
labelled as usual.
