Section 4.4 Switch IP Configuration

You have a small network connected to the Internet as shown in the Exhibit. You need to configure the default gateway address on Wrk1 so that it can communicate with the hosts on the Internet. Which address would you use for the default gateway address?
The IP address assigned to Fa0/0 on Router 1
You have a small network as shown in the Exhibit. You have configured the IP address and subnet mask on Wrk1. You want to be able to use Wrk1 to browse the Internet to connect to sites like www.cisco.com. What other parameters are required on the workstation? (Select two.)
Default gateway
DNS server address
You have a small network with a single subnet connected to the Internet as shown in the Exhibit. The router has been assigned the two addresses shown. You need to manually configure the workstation to connect to the network. The workstation should use RouterA as the default gateway, and DNS1 as the DNS server address. From the drop-down lists, select the appropriate paramteres to configure the workstation’s TCP/IP settings.
IP Address: 192.168.12.46
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.240
Default Gateway: 192.168.12.34
DNS Server: 192.162.1.22
Which command(s) would you use to configure a default gateway on a Catalyst 2950XL switch?
Switch (config) #ip default-gateway 192.168.10.1
You must configure an IP address on a Catalyst 2950XL switch using the default management switch port. From global configuration mode, which commands would you enter to configure the correct management port?
int vlan 1
ip address 192.168.10.2 255.255.255.0
You are the only network administrator for your company. You are planning for an upcoming vacation and need to ensure that you can administer your switches remotely while you are gone. What must you configure to allow remote administration? (Choose two.)
The switch must be configured with a valid IP address and default gateway.
The remote workstations must have access to the management VLAN of the switch.
You have a workstation configured with DNS server addresses as follows:
Primary DNS server = 192.168.1.1
Alternate DNS server = 192.168.1.155
While browsing the Internet, you go to www.cisco.com. A few minutes later, you type ping www.cisco.com into a command prompt. How will the workstation get the IP address for www.cisco.com?
Out of its local DNS cache
Listed below are several places that a workstation checks to resolve DNS host names. A. Primary DNS server B. Secondary DNS servers C. HOSTS file D. Local DNS cache
In a browser, you type the name of a website. In which order will these locations be checked during teh name resolution process?
D, C, A, B
You would like to see what host names have been cached on your router. Which command displays the cached list of host names?
Show hosts
For each operation on the right, match the appropriate command from the list on the left.
Configure DNS server address for the router to use for resolve host names: ip name-server
Create static entries for hosts, associating a host name with an IP address: ip host
Prevent the router from using DNS to resolve host names: no ip domain-lookup
Set the DNS name used by the router: hostname
You have just started a Cisco 2960 switch. You notice that the system light is a solid amber color. What does this indicate?
The system has power but is not functioning properly.
You are checking the status of port Fa0/12 on your Cisco 2960 switch. A cable has been plugged in to the port and is connected to a device. You press the Mode button to select Stat, Duplex, and Speed. Each time the port light remains off. Which of the following is true?
The port is shut down or the cable is bad.
You are checking the status of port Gi0/1 on your Cisco switch. A cable has been plugged in to the port and is connected to a device. You press the Mode button to select Stat, Duplex, and Speed. The results are shown below: Stat = Flashing green. Duplex = Solid green. Speend = Flashing green. Which of the following are true? (Select two.)
The port is operating in full-duplex mode.
The port speed is 1000 Mbps.
Wrk1 is connected to port Fa0/16 on your Cisco 2960 switch. The user complains that she can’t access the network server. You verify that a cable is connected to the Fa0/16 port on the switch. You press the Mode button to select Stat, Duplex, and Speed. Each time the port light remains off. Which command would most likely correct the problem?
no shutdown
Wrk1 is connected to port Fa0/16 on your Cisco 2960 switch. A cable has been plugged in to the port and is connected to a device. You press the Mode button to select Stat, and the port light alternately flashes amber green. What should you do to correct the problem?
Check the NIC in Wrk1 for frame errors or excessive collisions.
