It's Saturday, November 15, and it's time for us to take a look at the answers to Thursday's Cisco practice exam questions!
I posted quite a few new free Cisco training videos this past week, with over 30 more to come over the next six weeks - be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel to be the first to know of new videos! Details in today's other blog posts!
You're connecting two Cisco 2950 switches, and you want to create a trunk between them. What cable is required? Also, assuming the switches are at their defaults, what additional commands are needed to create the trunk?
Answer: You'll need a crossover cable. If the 2950s are at their defaults, you will need no additional commands as the ports will attempt to form a trunk dynamically.
That can present a security issue, which brings us to our next question!
In the scenario presented in the above question, name three security features or practices you should consider configuring to prevent a rogue switch gaining access to your network.
Answer: You should consider using Root Guard, Port Guard, or using a unused VLAN as the default VLAN on the trunk.
You could also disable the transmission of Dynamic Trunking Protocol (DTP) frames.
The variance command changes which of the following EIGRP values?
A. Advertised Distance
B. Feasible Distance
C. Both of these
D. Neither of these
Answer: D. The variance command doesn't actually change either of those values. Watch your routing tables the next time you run an EIGRP lab and you'll see this!
You have a PDLM file in Flash, ccnp.pdlm, that you'd like to load as part of your NBAR configuration. What command will do this?
Answer: Loading a PDLM (assuming the PDLM is in Flash) :
R2(config)#ip nbar pdlm ?
WORD Full path of the PDLM file
R2(config)#ip nbar pdlm flash://ccnp.pdlm
New questions later today!
To your success,
