Connecting Networks Version 6 – CN Chapter 7 Exam

Connecting Networks (Version 6.00) – CN Chapter 7 Exam


A new chief information officer (CIO) has requested implementation of a link-state dynamic routing protocol. Which two routing protocols fulfill this requirement?

(Choose two.)RIPv2BGP





Refer to the exhibit. A network administrator is utilizing RIPv1 in the exhibited network topology. What would the router R2 do with a packet that is originating from the network and destined for network

The router will forward the packet to R1.

The router will forward the packet to R3.

The router will load balance and forward packets to both R1 and R3.*

The router will drop the packet.


What best describes the operation of distance vector routing protocols?

They use hop count as their only metric.

They only send out updates when a new network is added.

They send their routing tables to directly connected neighbors.*

They flood the entire network with routing updates.


Which statement defines the speed of convergence of routing protocols?

The time it takes a router to form a neighbor adjacency.The time it takes a router to learn about directly connected links..

The time it takes a router to calculate the cost of a link.

The time it takes a router within a network to forward routing information.*


What is associated with link-state routing protocols?

low processor overheadpoison reverse

routing loops

split horizon

Shortest Path First calculations*


Which two pieces of information are contained within a link-state packet (LSP)? (Choose two.)

hop count


link type*




What is a difference between the routing protocols EIGRP and OSPF?

EIGRP uses hop count as the metric and OSPF uses cost as the metric.

EIGRP is an implementation of EGP whereas OSPF is an implementation of IGP.

EIGRP supports routing different network layer protocols whereas OSPF supports routing only IP-based protocols.*

EIGRP only supports equal-cost load balancing whereas OSPF supports both equal-cost and unequal-cost load balancing.


What protocol is used by EIGRP for the delivery and receipt of EIGRP packets?






How is bandwidth to a destination network calculated by EIGRP?

the lowest configured bandwidth of any interface along the route*

the sum of the configured bandwidths of all interfaces along the path

the highest configured bandwidth of any interface along the path

the bandwidth of the ingress interface of the last hop router


Refer to the exhibit.A network administrator has attempted to implement a default route from R1 to the ISP and propagate the default route to EIGRP neighbors. Remote connectivity from the EIGRP neighbor routers to the ISP connected to R1 is failing. Based on the output from the exhibit, what is the most likely cause of the problem?

The command default-information originate has not been issued on R1.

There are no EIGRP neighbor relationships on R1.

The ip route command must specify a next-hop IP address instead of an exit interface when creating a default route.

The command redistribute static has not been issued on R1.*

The network statement for the ISP connection has not been issued.


Refer to the exhibit.Which statement accurately reflects the configuration of routing on the HQ router?

A static default route was configured on this router.*

A static default route was learned via EIGRP routing updates.

The static default route should be redistributed using the default-information originate command.​

The IP address assigned to the GigabitEthernet0/0 interface is


Which command would limit the amount of bandwidth that is used by EIGRP for protocol control traffic to approximately 128 Kb/s on a 1.544 Mb/s link?

ip bandwidth-percent eigrp 100 8*

maximum-paths 8

variance 8

traffic-share balanced


Which criterion is preferred by the router to choose a router ID?

the IP address of the highest configured loopback interface on the routerthe IP address of the highest active interface on the router

the router-id rid command*

the IP address of the highest active OSPF-enabled interface


What is the effect of entering the network area 0 command in router configuration mode?

The interface with the IPv4 address will be a passive interface.

OSPF advertisements will include the network on the interface with the IPv4 address*

This command will have no effect because it uses a quad zero wildcard mask.

OSPF advertisements will include the specific IPv4 address


Which three requirements are necessary for two OSPFv2 routers to form an adjacency?(Choose three.)

The two routers must include the inter-router link network in an OSPFv2 network command.*

The OSPFv2 process is enabled on the interface by entering the ospf process area-id command.

The OSPF hello or dead timers on each router must match.*

The OSPFv2 process ID must be the same on each router.

The link interface subnet masks must match.*

The link interface on each router must be configured with a link-local address.
