Which statement about native VLAN traffic is true?
A. Cisco Discovery Protocol traffic travels on the native VLAN by default
B. Traffic on the native VLAN is tagged with 1 by default
C. Control plane traffic is blocked on the native VLAN.
D. The native VLAN is typically disabled for security reasons
What is the simplest way to configure routing between the regional office network 10.89.0.0/20 and the corporate network?
A. router1(config)#ip route 10.89.0.0 255.255.240.0 10.89.16.2
B. router2(config)#ip route 10.89.3.0 255.255.0.0 10.89.16.2
C. router1(config)#ip route 10.89.0.0 255.255.240.0 10.89.16.1
D. router2(config)#ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 10.89.16.1
The next hop of the static route should be 10.89.16.1, which is the IP address for router R1 in this example. Since this router is a stub router with only a single connection to the WAN, the simplest thing to do is to configure a single static default route back to the HQ network.
On a live network, which commands will verify the operational status of router interfaces? (Choose two.)
A. Router# show interfaces
B. Router# show ip protocols
C. Router# debug interface
D. Router# show ip interface brief
E. Router# show start
Answer: A, D
Only two commands “show interfaces” and “show ip interface brief” reveal the status of router interfaces (up/up, for example).
The network manager has requested a 300-workstation expansion of the network. The workstations are to be installed in a single broadcast domain, but each workstation must have its own collision domain. The expansion is to be as cost-effective as possible while still meeting the requirements.
Which three items will adequately fulfill the request? (Choose three).
A. One IP subnet with a mask of 255.255.254.0
B. Two IP subnets with a mask of 255.255.255.0
C. Seven 48-port hubs
D. Seven 48-port switches
E. One router interface
F. Seven router interfaces
Answer: A, D, E
To support 300 workstations in a single broadcast domain, we need to use a subnet mask which supports 512 hosts = 29-> /23 or 255.255.254.0 in decimal form -> A is correct.
If we use 48-port switches we need 300/48 = 6.25 -> seven 48-port switches are enough because we also need trunking between them -> D is correct.
We only need one router interface and it is connected with one of seven switches -> E is correct.
Which statement is a Cisco best practice for switch port security?
A. Vacant switch ports must be shut down.
B. Empty ports must be enabled in VLAN 1.
C. VLAN 1 must be configured as the native VLAN.
D. Err-disabled ports must be configured to automatically re-enable.
All devices are to be connected over Ethernet.
Which three device-to-device configurations are likely to require the use of a crossover connection? (Choose three.)
A. exhibit A
B. exhibit B
C. exhibit C
D. exhibit D
E. exhibit E
A host is connected to switch port fa0/3. The host and switch have been fully configured for IP connectivity as shown.
However, the indicator LED on switch port fa0/3 is not on, and the host cannot communicate with any other hosts including those connected to VLAN 2 on the same switch.
Based on the given information, what is the problem?
A. switch port fa0/3 is not configured as a trunk port
B. there is a bad cable
C. the switch has been assigned an incorrect subnet mask
D. switch port fa0/3 has been blocked by STP
E. the switch and the host must be in the same subnet
How does a switch differ from a hub?
A. A switch does not induce any latency into the frame transfer time.
B. A switch tracks MAC addresses of directly-connected devices.
C. A switch operates at a lower, more efficient layer of the OSI model.
D. A switch decreases the number of broadcast domains.
E. A switch decreases the number of collision domains.
Some of the features and functions of a switch include:
A switch is essentially a fast, multi-port bridge, which can contain dozens of ports.
Rather than creating two collision domains, each port creates its own collision domain.
In a network of twenty nodes, twenty collision domains exist if each node is plugged into its own switch port.
If an uplink port is included, one switch creates twenty-one single-node collision domains.
A switch dynamically builds and maintains a Content-Addressable Memory (CAM) table, holding all of the necessary MAC information for each port.
