What is "the physical line stays up, but the line protocol goes down?"

$ 60 - This protocol is considered the "manager" of a PPP connection

What is LCP, the Link Control Protocol?

$ 80 - These are the three default Frame Relay LMI types

What are Cisco, ansi, and q933a?

$60 - These three commands must be on a router before SDM can be used

What are "ip http server", "ip http secure-server", and "ip http authentication local"? (For one of these, you could have said that a username/password combination granting a privilege level of 15 is needed as well.)

$80 - These three "V"s must be considered when configuring firewalls

What are voice, VPNs, and video?

$100 - It's this command that defines the time allowed for a TCP handshake to reach the Established stage

What is "ip inspect tcp sywait-time"?

CCNP Certification / BSCI Exam:

The subject is... BGP.

$20 - It's this port that BGP uses to establish neighbor adjacencies

What is TCP port 179?

$40 - In the neighbor command, these are the two required numeric values

What are the IP address of the neighbor and that neighbor's AS number?

$60 - They're the two well-known discretionary BGP attributes

What are local preference and atomic aggregate?

$80 - The BGP attribute Local Preference uses this for a default setting

What is 100?

$100 - Assuming Cisco routers are in use, this is the 4th tiebreaker in the BGP best-path selection process

$100 - Of routed ports, SVIs, and Layer 3 port-channels, these are the interface types that support HSRP on a multilayer switch

What is "all of them"?

CCNP / ONT Exam:

$20 - It's the default queuing scheme for interfaces running at over E1 speed

What is FIFO, or "first in, first out"?

$80 - The maximum number of queues available in CBWFQ

What is 64?

I hope you did well! Don't forget to pick up your promotional gift on your way to the next post ...

... and I'll see you later today with another set of practice exam questions!

To your success,
