ANSWERS 1.Answer: B. 32-bit Explanation: IPv4 addresses are 32 bits in length. An example of an IPv4 address would be This address has 4 octets, which together equal 32 bits. In binary, this address would be expressed as 11000000.10101000.00000001.00000001 for 32 bits in total. IPv6 uses 128 -bit IP addresses. There are no 8-bit or 256-bit addresses as of the year 2010. 2. Answer: A. Star Explanation: The star topology connects hosts together by way of a central connecting device such as a hub or (more commonly) a switch. It is by far more common than the bus, ring, or mesh topologies. 3. Answer: C. 100BASE-T Explanation: 100BASE-T is a cabling standard that uses twisted pair cable. The 100 means 100 Mbps, the BASE specifies baseband transmissions, and the T stands for twisted pair. 10BASE5 and 10BASE2 are coaxial standards, and 100BASE-FX is a fiber optic cabling standard. 4. Answer: C. Category 5 Explanation: Category 5 (Cat5) is the minimum category of twisted pair necessary for 100BASE-Tx networks. Cat5 can run at a maximum of 100 Mbps. Cat3 and Cat4 cannot. Category 6 can run much faster and is therefore not the minimum cable that would be necessary; however, it is wise to consider Cat6 when installing a network. 5. Answers: C. and D. 802.11g, and 802.11a Explanation: 802.11g and a have a maximum data transfer rate of 54 Mbps. Although G uses the 2.4 GHz range, and A uses the 5 GHz range. 802.11b has a maximum of 11 Mbps. 802.1X does not deal with wireless transmission speeds, instead it is a form of authentication on the LAN that network cards and switches might be compliant with. It should be mentioned that 802.11n is not listed here, but can go much faster than 54 Mbps. 6. Answer: B. 802.3u Explanation: 802.3u is the IEEE standard also known as Fast Ethernet. It specifies a maximum transmission speed of 100 Mbps. 802.3 is the original Ethernet which specifies a maximum of 10 Mbps. 802.3z specifies 1000 Mbps over fiber, and 802.3ab specifies 1000 Mbps over copper. 7. Answer: D. Ipconfig /all Explanation: Ipconfig /all (when typed in the Command Prompt) shows the local computers IP configuration, including information such as DNS server address, and MAC addresses. The regular ipconfig command does not show this additional information. Ping tests whether other hosts are alive on the network. Tracert tests for hosts on other networks and traces the route from you to the final destination.

8. Answer: B. ::1 Explanation: ::1 is the loopback address or IPv6. Every local computer that runs IPv6 will use ::1 as the local loopback address. is the local l oopback address for IPv4. FE80::/10 is the range of addresses that can be used by private IPv6 computers. Usually, the local private address of a system using IPv6 starts with FE80. 0000::10 is not a valid IPv6 address. 9. Answer: B. RJ45 Explanation: The RJ45 connector is the most commonly used connector in networks using UTP cable. RJ11 is used for phone, ST is used by fiber optic cables, and BNC connectors are used by coaxial cables, especially in older, deprecated 10BASE2 networks. 10. Answer: A. 568B Explanation: EIA/TIA 568B is the most commonly used wiring standard when dealing with UTP cable and LANs. It became the standard in the early 1990s, eclipsing 568A. It is one type of USOC (Universal Service Order Code). BOGB is the acronym that denotes the 4 main colors (blue, orange, green, and brown) that are used by the various cabling specifications such as 568B. 11. Answer: D. Crimper Explanation: An RJ45 crimper is used to connect the RJ45 plug to the CAT5 cable. A TDR is a time-domain reflectometer, which checks a cable for breaks. A patch tester will verify connectivity of a network patch cable. A punch down tool is for punching network wires down to punch blocks, patch panels, and network jacks. 12. Answers: A. and C. Switch and hub. Explanation: Hubs, and more commonly, switches are used to connect computers together in a star topology. Network adapters connect individual computers to the network. Routers connect networks together. 13. Answer: C. Firewall Explanation: The firewalls main purpose is to protect the network from attackers. Hubs and switches simply connect hosts on the LAN together. The router connects clients on one network to other networks such as the Internet. 14. Answer: D. Router Explanation: A router connects two LANs together to form a W AN. It can also allow connectivity to the Internet. Although some small office-home office (SOHO) routers have a firewall built-in, the firewall is considered a separate device that protects the LAN from attackers. Hubs and switches allow for hosts on a LAN to communicate with each other. 15. Answer: B. 10 meters Explanation: Class 2 Bluetooth devices have a maximum range of 10 meters before transmission loss will occur. Class 1 is 100 meters. Class 3 is 1 meter. As of 2010, no Bluetooth devices can transmit data to 1000 meters.

16. Answers: A and C. EMI and RFI Explanation: EMI (electromagnetic interference) and RFI (radio frequency interference) are two types of interference that can affect your wires and wireless networks. Static electricity is not considered interference, but if you discharge it to a circuit board or even an unshielded network cable, it could cause disruption and data loss. A Faraday cage is used to prevent interference. 17. Answer: C. 11 Explanation: In the United States, most devices will have 11 channels from which you can select to send your wireless transmissions. If you have more than one wireless AP, consider using Channels 1, 6 and 11 so that there are not overlapping channels. 2.4 is the frequency range that these channels use. 18. Answer: D. Explanation: is one example of a common network number used by a SOHO router. This is common to Linksys devices. D-Link devices use, and Belkin devices use 19. Answer: B. Explanation: the Dcpromo command initiates the domain controller promotion for Windows Server 2003/2008, and W indows 2000 server. The other commands are not valid. 20. Answer: A. DNS Explanation: The DNS server address should be configured on the laptop prior to joining the W indows domain. This is because most domains rely on DNS for the translation of host names to IP addresses. This is a necessary component before joining the domain. 21. Answer: B. MAC address Explanation: The MAC address can only be viewed with ipconfig /all, not ipconfig. The rest of the answers are viewable simply by typing the ipconfig command. 22. Answer: B. Data Link Explanation: The MAC and LLC sublayers are part of the Data Link Layer, also known as layer 2, of the OSI model. 23. Answer: C. Network Explanation: A router operates at the network layer of the OSI model, also known as layer 3. 24. Answer: D. IP packet Explanation: IP packets reside on the Network Layer of the OSI model. TCP messages start at the Transport Layer and ascend all the way up to the Application Layer. HTTP protocols start at the Application Layer. Ethernet frames reside on the Data Link Layer.

25. Answer: B. Application. Explanation: A true gateway is one that translates from one protocol or platform to another. These reside on the Application Layer. They should not be confused with gateway addresses, which are the addresses of routers, which reside on the Network Layer of the OSI model. 26. Answer: C. 254 Explanation: A class C network, for example can only have 254 hosts maximum. These would range between and cannot be used because that is the network number. cannot be used because its the broadcast number. The rule is that the first and last numbers cannot be used for hosts. 27. Answer: C. Explanation: is an example of a private, class B network number. would be another, and so on, all the way up to is an example of a Class C private network number. is the example of a Class A private network number. And is the local loopback IP address. 28. Answer: Class A. Explanation: is a Class A public IP address. The first octet (65) is within the Class A range of 1-126. 127 is reserved for local loopback testing. 128191 is Class B, and 192-223 is Class C. 29. Answer: B. APIPA Explanation: APIPA (Automatic Private IP Addressing) is a Microsoft technology that enables computers to auto-assign IP addresses to themselves. If you see an address on the 169.254 network, you can be fairly certain that it is an APIPA address. 30. Answers: B and D. and Explanation: is a public Class A IP address. is a public Class C IP address. is a private Class A address. is not a valid IP because the number 256 cannot be used in any octet of an IPv4 address. 31. Answer: A. Explanation: is the only answer listed that is an example of a valid private IP address. It is a Class C private address. is not valid because 258 is not within the possible range (1-254). is a private IP network number, not an individual IP address. is a valid public IP address. 32. Answer: D. Transport Explanation: TCP connections are made on the Transport Layer of the OSI model, also known as layer 4. This is where port connections are made and described.

33. Answer: A. 21 Explanation: FTP (File Transfer Protocol) uses inbound port 21 to establish connections on FTP servers. Telnet uses port 23. SMTP uses port 25. DNS uses port 53. 34. Answer: B. 80 Explanation: HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol) uses inbound port 80. FTP uses port 21. Kerberos uses port 88. POP3 uses port 110. 35. Answer: A. Application Explanation: POP3, HTTP, FTP, and other protocols that are directly related to their corresponding applications reside on the Application Layer of the OSI model. 36. Answers: B and C. arp a and arp d. Explanation: The arp-a and arp-g commands will show the IP to MAC conversion table for recently made connections over the network. Arp d will delete a host that can be specified by inet_addr. 37.Answer: A. An FQDN Explanation: An FQDN (fully qualified domain name) is a name that contains a domain name and a host name. In this example, computer1 is the host name , and is the domain name. together they make the FQDN 38.Answer: B. DNS Explanation: DNS (the Domain Name System service) resolves host names, domain names, and FQDNs to their corresponding IP addresses. An older static text-version of this is the HOSTS.TXT file. 39. Answer: A. W INS Explanation: W INS (the W indows Internet Naming Service) is a Microsoft protocol that resolves NetBIOS names to IP addresses. An older static textversion of this is the LMHOSTS.txt file. 40. Answer: C. ARP Explanation: ARP (Address Resolution Protocol) translates between IP addresses on the Network Layer of the OSI model to MAC addresses on the Data Link Layer of the OSI model. 41. Answers: C and D, Router and IP proxy Explanation: Routers connect two or more networks together, so they need two network adapters minimum, one per network. IP proxies provide a method of protecting all of the LAN IP addresses, and allow all of the LAN computers to access the Internet; the IP proxy needs a network adapter for the LAN and for the Internet. 42. Answer: B. LDAP Explanation: LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) is used by Microsofts Active Directory. HTTP is an Internet protocol. RDP is Remote Desktop Protocol. Telnet is used to take control of computers via the commandline, but is insecure, deprecated, and therefore not recommended for use

FTP is the File Transfer Protocol. 47. Answer: B. 1701. Explanation: L2TP (the Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol) uses inbound port 1701. PPTP uses port 1723. RDP uses port 3389, and LDAP uses port 389. 48. Answers: B and C. L2TP and PPTP. Explanation: L2TP and PPTP are common tunneling protocols used to make VPN connections. IPsec is used to secure the connection. A DMZ is a demilitarized zone. 49. Answer: C. RRAS Explanation: RRAS (Routing and Remote Access Service) is the console used to configure a VPN server, router, and so on within a W indows Server 2003. 50. Answer: C. RDP Explanation: RDP (the Remote Desktop Protocol) uses inbound port 3389. PPTP uses port 1723. LDAP uses port 389 (or 636 if it is secure LDAP). RRAS is a service and not a protocol. 51. Answer: C. Explanation: The /25 equates to a subnet mask of This means that there can be 2 subnets maximum in the segment, with a total of 126 hosts per subnet. /23 and /24 do not conserve enough IP addresses on the network. /26 only allows for 62 hosts per subnet.

52. Answer: C. FPNW Explanation: FPNW (File and Print Services for NetW are) is the best service to use. It is installed and run on a W indows Server, and allows connectivity from Novell NetW are clients to Microsoft resources. CSNW and GSNW are used to connect Microsoft clients to NetWare resources (single clients and multiple clients respectively), and File and Print Sharing is used by Microsoft operating systems only. 53. Answer: B. W orkstation Explanation: The W orkstation service in W indows enables computers to access other computers on the network and their remote resources. The Server service enables other remote computers to access local resources on the computer running the Server service. The Spooler service deals with printing on the local computer. The W orld Wide Web Publishing service deals with websites running on the local computer. 54. Answer: C. Configure traffic shaping Explanation: By configuring traffic shaping, you can limit the amount of bandwidth that users of file sharing programs will have access to, and increase the bandwidth available to the voice calls. A caching proxy holds web information for subsequent clients. While this can conserve bandwidth, it all depends on what line the proxy is connected to. It might help to conserve bandwidth overall but is not the best answer. Configuring VLANs is done on a switch, and will therefore be removed from the affected T-1. Upgrading the switches will also affect the LAN and will be removed from the T-1. 55. Answer: A. Fiber optic cable Explanation: Fiber optic cable transmits light instead of electricity. This makes it impossible for crosstalk to occur since crosstalk is a by-product of electrical wires that are close together. The rest of the answers are copper-based and therefore susceptible to crosstalk. 56. Answer: B. Nbtstat Explanation: Nbtstat (NetBIOS over TCP/IP Statistics) can show the services running on a remote computer. For example, nbtstat a computername. Netstat shows sessions running on a local computer. Ping tests whether hosts are alive on the network. Arp deals with IP address to MAC address resolutions. 57. Answer: D. Computer Management Explanation: The Computer Management console window can show all of the services and their current state. 58. Answer: B. <20> Explanation: <20> identifies the Server service. <03> is the Messenger service. <00> is the W orkstation service. <1f> deals with domain services. 59. Answer: B. Layer 5 Explanation: Layer 5 is the Session Layer of the OSI model. It is responsible for login, logout, session connections, and timeouts. Layer 4 is the Transport Layer. Layer 6 is the Presentation Layer. Layer 7 is the Application Layer.

60. Answer: A. Hub Explanation: A hub is the most susceptible to collisions because all of the copper wiring inside the hub is shared. W hen computers are connected to a hub it is considered to be shared bandwidth. Switches and other devices do not have this issue due to the fact that they employ a matrix of wiring, creating separate segments of traffic. 61. Answer: D. 110 IDC Explanation: Patch panels use 110 IDC connectors and require a special punchdown tool. 66 blocks (also known as punch blocks) that are used for telephone connections have 66 connectors. Screw terminals can be found on older telephone modules; in this case wires are stripped and wrapped around the terminal, not punched down. USB simply connects to a USB port, no punching down is required for screw terminals or USB connections. 62. Answer: C. Reversed pair Explanation: W hen wiring a patch panel, each pair of colors must be punched down correctly; it can be easy to reverse a pair unwittingly. It is wise to double punch and even triple punch connections; it is difficult to punch down too many times, because the patch panel is built to withstand that kind of abuse. RJ45 plugs dont come into play when it comes to wiring a patch panel. 63. Answer: C. L2TP with IPsec Explanation: L2TP with IPsec provides better encryption and security than PPTP. L2TP should not be used by itself. IPsec is a security protocol that can be used in various situations, and is commonly used to encrypt L2TP VPN connections. 64. Answer: C. NTP Explanation: NTP (the Network Time Protocol) is used to synchronize time between clients of a domain and the domain controller. FTP is the File Transfer Protocol. Kerberos is another protocol used in W indows domains that enables the login from clients to the domain controller. NNTP is the Network News Transfer Protocol. 65. Answer: C. 1723 Explanation: PPTP is a commonly used protocol for connecting to a home network via a VPN. It uses port 1723. Port 23 is used by Telnet. Port 80 is used by HTTP. Port 3389 is used by RDP. 66. Answer: B. Net time Explanation: The Net time command is used to synchronize time between Windows clients and other W indows computers such as domain controllers. Net stop will stop a service in the command-line. The other two answers are not valid. 67. Answer: A. Data Link Explanation: As the name implies (L2TP stands for Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol), L2TP works on Layer 2 of the OSI model; the Data Link Layer.

68. Answer: D. SMTP Explanation: SMTP (the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) uses port 25. SNMP uses port 161. SMB stands for Server Message Block and is a type of packet. Telnet uses port 23. 69. Answer: B. DNS Explanation: DNS (the Domain Name System) needs to be configured properly in order to facilitate the resolution of domain names to IP addresses. Without DNS, a person could ping the IP address of the host, but not connect by name. DHCP is not configured on the client, it is simply turned on. W INS deals with NetBIOS name to IP address resolution and is far less common than DNS. MAC addresses are not normally configured. 70. Answer: A. Port-based Explanation: Port-based VLANs are the most common. They deal with the physical ports of a switch. Protocol and MAC-based VLANs are more complicated to set up and are less common. There are no router-based VLANs. VLANs are setup on a switch. 71. Answer: C. Port forwarding Explanation: Port forwarding allows you to redirect ports on the router to specific computers on your home network, for example a VPN server. 72. Answers: B and D. DMZ and Extranet. Explanation: A DMZ (demilitarized zone) is used to store less volatile information in order to share it with sister-companies, partner companies, and other remote users, without allowing them access to the LAN. Often, DMZs can also be accessed by LAN users. This is done with a special firewall configuration. The extranet is used to share information with other companies, but not the public. So DMZ and extranet are both valid answers. Port forwarding might be initiated, but it is a technical need that is possibly required when implementing a DMZ. Intranets are used by employees of the company only. 73. Answer: A. Fault tolerance Explanation: The additional of extra components in an effort to protect against failure is done to increase the fault tolerance of a device. 74. Answer: B. RAID 1 Explanation: RAID 1 (mirroring) can use two disks only. RAID 0 can use two or more disks but it is not fault tolerant. RAID 5 requires a minimum of 3 disks. RAID 6 requires a minimum of 4 disks. 75. Answer: C. AV software Explanation: AV (antivirus) software protects against viruses. Firewalls protect an entire network against attackers using attacks such as DOS. A UPS protects a computer from power issues. Anti-spyware protects against spyware intrusions.

76. Answer: A. Incremental Explanation: An incremental backup will backup only what has changed since the last full backup, or last incremental backup. It also sets the archive bit to one, so if you wish to run another incremental backup on W ednesday, that backup will only backup what has changed since the incremental on Tuesday. This saves time and resources in comparison to a differential backup, which does not se the archive bit. 77. Answer: B. Tracert Explanation: Tracert will check the router from you to the final destination, whatever that might be; a router, computer, and so on. Ping checks if hosts are alive, but it does not show paths to the final destination, and is usually used on the LAN. Ipconfig shows the IP configuration of the local computer. Netstat shows (among other things) network sessions the local computer currently has running. 78. Answer: A. Load balancing Explanation: Load balancing distributes resource load among multiple devices or computers. It is also known as true clustering. Fail-over clustering is when a secondary computer takes over completely when the first computer fails. RAID 1 is mirroring and is when data is written to two drives. RAID 0 is striping, when multiple drives are used together for speed. 79. Answer: D. RAID 5 Explanation: RAID 5 uses three or more disks, and stripes data and parity information across those disks. Disk duplexing is when a RAID 1 mirror has been set up, but with a separate hard drive controller for each drive. 80. Answer: D. The phone is sharing the 2.4 GHz frequency range with the laptop Explanation: It is common to find cordless phones that use the 2.4 GHz frequency range. Also, 802.11b, g, and n utilize the 2.4 GHz range. This makes interference a common occurrence. 81. Answer: A. Explanation: /27 equates to a subnet mask of This allows for 8 subnets total, with a maximum of 30 hosts per subnet. /28 only allows for 14 hosts per subnet. /29 is 6 hosts per subnet. /30 is 2 hosts per subnet. 82. Answer: C. Disable the SSID Explanation: By disabling the SSID, wireless users from next-door companies will not be able to find your network (using conventional means). Enabling MAC filtering is a possible solution, but not the easiest by far. Port forwarding deals with making a redirection from the router to a computer on the network. Using a signal booster would make it easier for other users to connect to your wireless network, because it would extend your wireless range.

83. Answer: C. Rolled Explanation: A rolled cable is used to connect a laptops serial port to a routers console port, giving the person at the laptop full control of the router. Crossover connections are used when like devices are connected together. Straight-through connections (the most common) are used to connect unlike device, such as a computer and a switch. Loopback cables are used to identify network adapter issues. 84. Answer: D. W PA2 and AES Explanation: W PA2 is the newest of the listed encryptions standards. It is best used with AES (Advanced Encryption Standard). W EP is deprecated and should be avoided. 85. Answer: C. Null session Explanation: The null session is the only attack listed that is not a DOS attack. Null session attacks make unauthenticated NetBIOS connections to a target computer. 86. Answer: B. Man-in-the-middle attack Explanation: The man-in-the-middle attack attempts to intercept all data between a client and a server. 87. Answer: B. Ping l 1500 Explanation: -l (as in L like Larry) allows you to change the buffer size, or packet size. n deals with the amount of packets sent. t 1500 is invalid because t sends continuous packets. Arp -1500 is invalid. 88. Answer: D.nslookup Explanation: The nslookup command can be used to (among other things) resolve domain names to their corresponding IP addresses. ARP resolves IP addresses to MAC addresses. DNS is not a command but the service that resolves domain names to IP addresses. Netstat shows network connections of the local computer. 89. Answer: C. net stop Explanation: The net stop command can stop services in the command-line. For example, net stop spooler would stop the print spooler service. 90. Answer: C. netstat an Explanation: The netstat command shows network connections and the ports they use. However, it is limited. To get a full listing of ports being used, use netstat a. To get that same information in numeric format, use netstat an. 91. Answer: D. Patch cables Explanation: If the link light is behaving abnormally, check the patch cables, and make sure they are the right type, wired properly, and dont have any kinks or slices.

92. Answer: A. Ethernet Explanation: W hen a computer transmits data on an Ethernet network, the data is by default broadcast to every host on the network. Token Ring and Token passing technologies use a single token to deliver packets, instead of utilizing broadcasts. 100BASE-T is a cabling technology that specifies 100 Mbps over twisted pair cable. 93. Answer: C. Two frames of data hitting each other Explanation: Collisions occur on Ethernet networks when two frames of data are transmitted simultaneously. Token passing and Token Ring networks do not have this problem because they only use one token (normally). Also, it isnt really packets that collide, it is the frames that contain the packets. 94. Answer: A. Remotely control a W indows computer Explanation: Terminal Services is a W indows service also known simply as Remote Desktop (or RDP). It allows a person to remotely control a W indows computer; the display looks as if the person is sitting right at the remote computer. 95. Answers: C and D. Username and password, and Caps lock Explanation: The most common reason why a user cant log on to a domain is because they typed the username or password incorrectly. The Caps lock can get in the way of typing this correctly also. More advanced things like IP configurations and time synchronization can be checked afterwards. 96. Answer: D. net use P: \\pisces\puredata Explanation: Net use is the proper command, followed by P: to specify the drive letter you want to use for the mapped connection. Finally, \\pisces\puredata would be the proper path. 97. Answer: B. Eight days Explanation: Most W indows Server systems will default to eight days for DHCP addresses. 98. Answer: C. Request Explanation: The third step of the DHCP DORA process, (the R in DORA), stands for request. This is when the client computer requests an IP address from the DHCP server. It is usually the IP address that the server offered in the previous step. 99. Answer: D. A DHCP relay agent Explanation: By default, DHCP packets cannot cross a router. There are two possible solutions to this: installing the BootP protocol on the router or installing a DHCP relay agent on the other subnet. The relay agent will talk directly through the router to the DHCP server and allow the packets to cross to the other network. This way, you do not need a second DHCP server. 100. Answer: A. Identify symptoms Explanation: Identify symptoms before you actually do anything. Dont let emotions cloud your judgment. Never panic. Later, you would identify the area affected, and finally, you would test the result.
