Here are the answers to Sunday's Cisco Certification exam practice questions!

CCNA Certification:

You want to configure your router to use the DNS server at, and no broadcasts should be sent. The router is currently set at the default behavior for DNS server location.

The full command to do this is ____________ .

Answer: ip name-server

Since the default behavior of the router is to broadcast for a DNS server to perform name resolution, this simply needs to be changed to the following command:

R1(config)#ip name-server
R1#jdukeTranslating "jduke"...domain server (

Note that a domain server is still being referred to, but it is no longer a broadcast.

CCNP Certification / BSCI Exam:

What combination of hex characters at the beginning of an IPV6 address indicates a broadcast?

Answer: None - IPv6 doesn't use broadcasts.

CCNP Certification / BCMSN Exam:

In what VTP modes can VLANs be created?

CCNP Certification / ISCW Exam:

What single command would create a username/password in the local router's database with a username of larry and an encrypted password of winget?

Answer: username larry secret winget. By using the secret option there instead of the more-common password command, the password will be encrypted.

CCNP Certification / ONT Exam:
