Which of the following statements are true regarding the command ip route

  1. The command is used to establish a static route.
  2. The default administrative distance is used.
  3. The command is used to configure the default route.
  4. The subnet mask for the source address is

Solution: Although answer D almost seems right, it is not; the mask is the mask used on the remote network, not the source network. Since there is no number at the end of the static route, it is using the default administrative distance of 1.

Which command displays RIP routing updates?

Solution: The debug ip rip command is used to show the Internet Protocol (IP) Routing Information Protocol (RIP) updates being sent and received on the router.

Which statement is true regarding classless routing protocols?

  1. The use of discontiguous networks is not allowed.
  2. The use of variable length subnet masks is permitted.
  3. RIPv1 is a classless routing protocol.
  4. IGRP supports classless routing within the same autonomous system.
  5. RIPv2 supports classless routing.

Solution: Classful routing means that all hosts in the internetwork use the same mask. Classless routing means that you can use Variable Length Subnet Masks (VLSMs) and can also support discontiguous networking.

You have the following routing table. Which of the following networks will not be placed in the neighbor routing table?

R [120/1] via, 00:00:12, Serial0
C is directly connected, Serial0 is subnetted, 1 subnets
C is directly connected, Loopback0
R [120/1] via, 00:00:12, Serial0
R [120/15] via, 00:00:07, Serial0
C is directly connected, Ethernet0
Solution: The network cannot be placed in the next router's routing table because it already is at 15 hops. One more hop would make the route 16 hops, and that is not valid in RIP networking.

What is split horizon?

Solution: A split horizon will not advertise a route back to the same router it learned the route from.

What command is used to stop RIP routing updates from exiting out an interface but still allow the interface to receive RIP route updates?

Solution: The (config-router)#passive-interface command stops updates from being sent out an interface, but route updates are still received.

Two connected routers are configured with RIP routing. What will be the result when a router receives a routing update that contains a higher-cost path to a network already in its routing table?

Solution: When a routing update is received by a router, the router first checks the administrative distance (AD) and always chooses the route with the lowest AD. However, if two routes are received and they both have the same AD, then the router will choose the one route with the lowest metrics, or in RIP's case, hop count.

You type debug ip rip on your router console and see that is being advertised to you with a metric of 16. What does this mean?

Solution: You cannot have 16 hops on a RIP network by default. If you receive a route advertised with a metric of 16, this means it is inaccessible.

The Corporate router receives an IP packet with a source IP address of and a destination address of Looking at the output from the Corporate router, what will the router do with this packet?

Corp#sh ip route
[output cut]
R [120/2] via, 00:00:23, Serial0/0
R [120/1] via, 00:00:23, Serial0/0
R [120/1] via, 00:00:23, Serial0/0
C is directly connected, Serial0/0
C is directly connected, FastEthernet0/0
Solution: Since the routing table shows no route to the network, the router will discard the packet and send an ICMP destination unreachable message out interface FastEthernet 0/0, which is the source LAN where the packet originated from.

If your routing table has a static, a RIP, and an IGRP route to the same network, which route will be used to route packets by default?

Solution: Static routes have an administrative distance of 1 by default. Unless you change this, a static route will always be used over any other found route. IGRP has an administrative distance of 100, and RIP has an administrative distance of 120, by default.

What is route poisoning?

Solution: Another way to avoid problems caused by inconsistent updates and to stop network loops is route poisoning. When a network goes down, the distance-vector routing protocol initiates route poisoning by advertising the network with a metric of 16, or unreachable (sometimes referred to as infinite).

Which of the following is true regarding RIPv2?

Solution: RIPv2 is pretty much just like RIPv1. It has the same administrative distance and timers and is configured just like RIPv1.

A network administrator views the output from the show ip route command. A network that is advertised by both RIP and IGRP appears in the routing table flagged as an IGRP route. Why is the RIP route to this network not used in the routing table?

Solution: RIP has an administrative distance (AD) of 120, while IGRP has an administrative distance of 100, so the router will discard any route with a higher AD than 100.

What does RIPv2 use to prevent routing loops?

  1. CIDR
  2. Split horizon
  3. Authentication
  4. Classless masking
  5. Holddown timers
Solution: RIPv2 uses the same timers and loop-avoidance schemes as RIPv1. Split horizon is used to stop an update from being sent out the same interface it was received on. Holddown timers allow time for a network to become stable in the case of a flapping link.

Which two of the following are true regarding the distance-vector and link-state routing protocols?

  1. Link state sends its complete routing table out all active interfaces on periodic time intervals.
  2. Distance vector sends its complete routing table out all active interfaces on periodic time intervals.
  3. Link state sends updates containing the state of its own links to all routers in the internetwork.
  4. Distance vector sends updates containing the state of its own links to all routers in the internetwork.
Solution: The distance-vector routing protocol sends its complete routing table out all active interfaces at periodic time intervals. Link-state routing protocols send updates containing the state of its own links to all routers in the internetwork.
