It's Saturday, September 20, and here are the answers to Friday's Cisco practice exam questions!

CCNA Certification And CCENT Certification:

What is the meaning of the term microsegmentation as it relates to switching?

Answer: Microsegmentation is a term sometimes used in Cisco documentation to describe the "one host, one collision domain" topology resulting from each host being connected to its own switch port.

CCNA Security Certification / CCNP ISCW Exam:

Which of the following can the IOS Firewall set perform?

A. Application Inspection

B. Stateful Packet Inspection

C. Authentication Proxy

D. Java Blocking

E. URL filtering

Answers: A, B, C, D, E. The IOS Firewall Set can perform all of these actions.

CCNP Certification / BSCI Exam:

In the following output, which metric is the feasible distance? Which is the advertised distance? And what is the difference between the two? (No charge for the extra questions!)

R3# <>

P, 2 successors, FD is 2195456
via (2195456/281600), Serial0
via (2195456/281600), Serial0

Answer: The first number, 2195456, is the route's feasible distance. This is the full metric of the route to the destination network.

The second number, 281600, is the route's advertised distance. This is the metric from the next-hop router to the destination network.

CCNP Certification / BCMSN Exam:

You want to copy the contents of your Cisco switch's startup configuration file to the running configuration file. What's the exact syntax of the global command that will do this?

Answer: copy start run for short. You can see the full syntax in the following IOS Help readout. Remember, the first location in the command is what you're copying, and the second location is where you're copying to.

flash Copy from system flash
flh-log Copy FLH log file to server
mop Copy from a MOP server
rcp Copy from an rcp server
running-config Copy from current system configuration
startup-config Copy from startup configuration
tftp Copy from a TFTP server

BRYANT_ADVANTAGE_1#copy startup-config ?
rcp Copy to an rcp server
running-config Update (merge with) current system configuration
tftp Copy to a TFTP server

BRYANT_ADVANTAGE_1#copy startup-config running-config

CCNP / ONT Exam:

What are we configuring in the following example?

R1(config-pmap-c)#shape peak ?
<8000-154400000> Target Bit Rate (bits per second), the value needs to be multiple of 8000

Answer: We're configuring traffic shaping, and this particular section of the configuration is a policy map.

I'll have more fresh-baked Cisco questions for you later today!

To your success,
