3 Why is it difficult for network designers to predict the patterns and behavior of file transfer traffic?
The traffic is user initiated.
File size is typically very small.
Dedicated bandwidth is essential.
All file transfer traffic is queued as high priority.
Refer to the exhibit. A NetworkingCompany designer is reviewing a diagram of a customer network. What two risks or issues can
be identified in the topology that is shown? (Choose two.)
The firewall router and ISP connection represent a single point of failure.
A failure of the switch that connects the Cisco Call Manager to the network will cause the entire IP telephony system to
Using Layer 3 switches to interconnect the data center servers to the IP phones introduces too much delay.
The IP phones need to be redundantly connected to the switches to prevent single points of failure at the access layer.
If one of the Layer 3 switches fails, the Cisco Call Manager will be unreachable.
Refer to the exhibit. A network associate is configuring a new router to provide routing between VLANs. The associate removes
the router from the box and connects the Fa0/0 interface to a trunking port on the switch. After the configuration is applied to the
router, the traffic between VLANs still fails. What is causing this to occur?
The NWRnStick router needs a routing protocol configured.
The NWRnStick router needs additional Fast Ethernet interfaces installed.
The subinterfaces of the NWRnStick router should have IP addresses applied.
All the subinterfaces of the NWRnStick router should be configured in the same VLAN.
6 When implementing a security policy, which two actions should be included as part of the security checklist? (Choose two.)
Disable all logging.
Enable Telnet on TCP port 23.
Use HTTP for web administration.
Set timeouts and ACLs on VTY lines.
Shut down any unused ports and interfaces.
7 The network infrastructure of the main campus in an organization consists of network devices from multiple vendors. The IT
department has a network architecture upgrade project that will gradually upgrade the campus backbone to 10 Gb/s. The routing
protocol also needs to be upgraded from RIP to support VLSM and CIDR, with infrequent routing updates to reduce traffic. In
phase one of the project, two high-end Cisco devices are purchased to replace two of the four current core routers made by
another networking company.
Which routing protocol should be selected for the network?

authentication between RouterA and RouterB?
Authentication will fail because only one key is configured.
Authentication will fail because the key chain names do not match.
Authentication will succeed and EIGRP updates can be exchanged.
Authentication will fail because the key chain names must match the router names.
Refer to the exhibit. What is the spanning-tree role of all the enabled interfaces of SW11?
Refer to the exhibit. The administrator wishes to specify that the 56 kb/s circuit will be a backup link that will automatically be
used in the event that the primary Frame Relay circuit goes down for traffic to the 172.16.75.0/24 network. Which command
syntax will accomplish this?
RouterA(config)# ip route 172.16.75.0 255.255.255.0 220.127.116.11 200

21 On a Monday morning the help desk at a large company receives an unusually high number of calls reporting no connectivity to
the Internet or to any other network resources. Otherwise the PCs are functioning normally. Help desk technicians note that all
the calls are from a single department, and all affected users are on the same floor of a single building. Where should the help
desk technicians suspect that the problem lies?

show interfaces serial 0/0/0 command. According to the output, what can be concluded about the serial connection between the
client site and ISP site?
The router at the client site is still in the process of rebooting.
The administrator probably configured the wrong password.
The administrator has not issued a no shut command on the serial interface.
The administrator probably configured the wrong IP address for the serial interface.
25 The main office of a NetworkingCompany customer currently connects to three branch offices via three separate point-to-point
T1 circuits. The customer network uses RIPv2 as the routing protocol within both the LAN and the WAN. The account manager
proposes a change to a Frame Relay network because the costs are lower. A single local loop connection can be installed at the
main office with three separate PVCs to connect the branch offices. How can the main office edge router be configured to enable
the customer to continue to use RIP as the WAN routing protocol?
Enable Inverse ARP on the serial interface in order to learn the routes to the IP addresses of the remote routers.
To prevent the Frame Relay network from causing a routing loop, disable split horizon on the serial interface.
Create three separate point-to-point subinterfaces on the serial interface and assign a different subnet IP address to each
Configure the serial interface with a single interface DLCI number and create frame-relay map statements for each remote

Only objective 1 is met.
All four objectives are met.
Objectives 1, 2, and 4 are met.
Only objectives 2 and 4 are met.
Only objectives 2 and 3 are met.
Refer to the exhibit. A NetworkingCompany engineer is characterizing an existing network for a new customer. The engineer issues
a show running-config command on the branch router to gather configuration information. What is the engineer able to
determine as a result of viewing the output of this command?
The branch office router has two routes to the main office LANs in the routing table.
The default route for the branch office traffic is the serial link to the Edge2 router.
A connection through ISP-A will be used to reach the main office LANs if the Frame Relay network is unavailable.
By using both the DSL and the Frame Relay connection, the branch office router will load balance traffic that is destined
for the main office LANs.
34 Company XYZ requires a WAN solution that provides flexible bandwidth options and supports one physical interface at the head
office that would provide simultaneous connectivity to various remote sites. The distance from each site should not make the
solution more expensive. Which WAN technology meets the requirements of the company?

40 Which two events occur when the command RouterB(config-if)# frame-relay map ip 126.96.36.199 211 is issued on RouterB?
RouterB uses DLCI 211 to forward data to 188.8.131.52.
A Layer 2 address is statically mapped to a Layer 3 address.
DLCI 211 replaces the MAC address in the ARP table for entry 184.108.40.206.

PPP encapsulation and authentication with CHAP. However, the connection cannot be established. According to the partial output
of the show running-config command, what is the cause of the problem?
The password should be all lowercase.
The password should contain fewer than 8 characters.
The usernames must be the same as the sending router hostnames.

A highly controlled simulated environment is easier to manage.
The test network must be independent from the production network.
Network response to unplanned and unpredictable events must be assessed.

effective, secure, and authenticated connection to centralized internal resources that are located at company headquarters,
without requiring configuration for individual employees at the branch offices?
leased line with PPP authentication
access control list
46 A network administrator is asked to upgrade the enterprise network devices and to modify the addressing scheme to support
VLSM and route summarization. The current network infrastructure contains both Cisco and non-Cisco routers. The plan is to
replace old routers gradually with the latest Cisco routers. Which two routing protocols can the administrator use to support both
upgrading requirements? (Choose two.)
Refer to the exhibit. The routers are configured with RIPv2 and utilize the default configuration. When attempting to communicate
with other networks, hosts from 172.31.1.0/24 are experiencing connectivity issues. What could be done to resolve this issue?

Be sure the card faceplate does not touch the rear panel of the chassis.
Use pliers to push the card into the connecting socket.
Use a properly grounded antistatic wrist strap.
Leave the captive screws loose until the card is working properly, then tighten securely.

to allow the use of a single IP gateway
to separate voice from data traffic for ease of prioritization
to allow the PBX to use VLAN IDs to filter both voice and data traffic
to allow connectivity between traditional phone devices and IP-based telephony devices
