Time for a brand-new CCNP ROUTE practice exam!

Let's get right to today's all-BGP edition!


1.  Put the following BGP adjacency steps in their correct order.

Idle

Active

Connect

Established

OpenConfirm

OpenSent



2.   In the following list, identify the following:

Well-known mandatory attributes

Optional transitive attributes

Optional non-transitive attributes



AS_PATH

Origin

Local Preference

Community

Aggregator

MED



3.  When you see the letter "e" for a BGP path's Origin code, exactly what does that mean?


The answers right after this brief and VERY important message!




Beat The CCNP R&S Jan. 30 Deadline -- Guaranteed!




I guarantee you'll pass all 3 current CCNP exams before the January 30, 2015 deadline with my CCNP All-In-One Video Boot Camp....

.... and if you don't pass all three exams before that date, you'll receive the fully-updated courses for the new exams absolutely FREE!
   
No strings attached -- but you will get results.

(You also get my CCNA Security course absolutely free!)



Just want to tackle ROUTE for now?   You'll pass that exam with my CCNP ROUTE Video Boot Camp before the January 30, 2015 deadline, or you'll get the fully-updated ROUTE course free!

(You still get the free CCNA Security course, too!)





Let's get to the answers!

1.  The BGP path states are Idle > Connect > Active >  OpenSent >  OpenConfirm  >  Established.



2.  Those BGP attributes.... 

Well-known mandatory attributes: 
AS_PATH, Origin, and Next-Hop

Optional transitive attributes:
Aggregator, Community

Optional non-transitive attributes:
MED (the Multi-Exit Discriminator)


3.  While we're at it, here are all three of the BGP Origin codes and their meaning:

"i" -- path originated from an IGP via the network command

"e" -- path originated from an Exterior Gateway Protocol

"?" --  actual origin unknown, since the route was learned via route redistribution


See you on YouTube and Udemy (and on Friday with another new CCNP ROUTE practice test!)

Hi Bulldogs!

It's back-to-school time... for you!  : )   Let's get right to today's CCENT and CCNA Flash Card Practice Exam....


... and get ready to get your hands on over 700 flash card practice exam questions, PLUS tons of extra info to help you pass the CCENT and CCNA exams... for a ridiculously low price.

Seriously.  And it's coming in October -- only from TBA!

Today's Practice Exam:


1.  You have an EIGRP Successor route with a metric of 5000.

The Feasible Successors for that same route have metrics of 7500, 11000, and 16000.

What single command will bring the two Feasible Successors with the lowest metrics into the IP routing table while leaving the third out?


2.  By the way, what EIGRP table contains all three of those Feasible Successors?


3.  In the following command, what value is represented by the "100"?

ip hold-time eigrp 100 50

Answers right after this quick message!

The free CCNA Security course offer was such a hit last month (over 1000 courses given away!) that I'm doing it again this month.

Join my CCNA Video Boot Camp today and you'll be given a free membership in my CCNA Security Video Boot Camp!  : ) 



If you're already a CCNA, join my CCNA Security course directly for just $10!

And now... the answers!

1.    The command variance 3 will bring any Feasible Successor with a metric of 15000 ( 3 x 5000, the metric for the Successor) or less into the IP routing table.


2.   You'll find all of your EIGRP Feasible Successors in the EIGRP topology table.


3.  Watch your EIGRP commands on this one -- many of them require you to enter the AS number of the local router, and that's the case here. 

R1(config-if)#ip hold-time eigrp ?
  <1-65535>  Autonomous system number

R1(config-if)#ip hold-time eigrp 100 ?
  <1-65535>  Seconds before neighbor is considered down

See you on YouTube, Udemy, and right here tomorrow with a new CCENT / CCNA practice exam!
