A packet capture log indicates that several router solicitation messages were sent from a local host on the IPv6 segment. What is the expected acknowledgment and its usage?



Router acknowledgment messages will be forwarded upstream, where the DHCP server will allocate addresses to the local host.


Routers on the IPv6 segment will respond with an advertisement that provides an external path from the local subnet, as well as certain data, such as prefix discovery.


Duplicate Address Detection will determine if any other local host is using the same IPv6 address for communication with the IPv6 routers on the segment.


All local host traffic will be redirected to the router with the lowest ICMPv6 signature, which is statically defined by the network administrator.


Correct Answer: B


Router Advertisements (RA) are sent in response to router solicitation messages. Router solicitation messages, which have a value of 133 in the Type field of the ICMP packet header, are sent by hosts at system startup so that the host can immediately autoconfigure without needing to wait for the next scheduled RA message. Given that router solicitation messages are usually sent by hosts at system startup (the host does not have a configured unicast address), the source address in router solicitation messages is usually the unspecified IPv6 address (0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0). If the host has a configured unicast address, the unicast address of the interface sending the router solicitation message is used as the source address in the message. The destination address in router solicitation messages is the all-routers multicast address with a scope of the link. When an RA is sent in response to a router solicitation, the destination address in the RA message is the unicast address of the source of the router solicitation message.

RA messages typically include the following information:

One or more onlink IPv6 prefixes that nodes on the local link can use to automatically configure their IPv6 addresses

Lifetime information for each prefix included in the advertisement

Sets of flags that indicate the type of autoconfiguration (stateless or stateful) that can be completed

Default router information (whether the router sending the advertisement should be used as a default router and, if so, the amount of time (in seconds) the router should be used as a default router)

Additional information for hosts, such as the hop limit and MTU a host should use in packets that it originates




QUESTION 32 is a small IT corporation that is attempting to implement the network shown in the exhibit. Currently the implementation is partially completed. OSPF has been configured on routers Chicago and NewYork. The SO/O interface on Chicago and the SO/1 interface on NewYork are in Area 0. The loopbackO interface on NewYork is in Area 1. However, they cannot ping from the serial interface of the Seattle router to the loopback interface of the NewYork router. You have been asked to complete the implementation to allow this ping.’s corporate implementation guidelines require:


clip_image002The OSPF process ID for all routers must be 10.

clip_image002[1]The routing protocol for each interface must be enabled under the routing process.

clip_image002[2]The routing protocol must be enabled for each interface using the most specific wildcard mask possible.

clip_image002[3]The serial link between Seattle and Chicago must be in OSPF area 21.

clip_image002[4]OSPF area 21 must not receive any inter-area or external routes.

Correct Answer:

Here is the solution below:


In actual exam, the IP addressing, OSPF areas and process ID, and router hostnames may change, but the overall solution is the same.


Seattle’s S0/0 IP Address is So, we need to find the network address and wildcard mask of in order to configure the OSPF.


IP Address: /30

Subnet Mask:


Here subtract 252 from 2565, 256-252 = 4, hence the subnets will increment by 4.


First, find the 4th octet of the Network Address:



The 4th octet of IP address ( belongs to subnet 1 (4 to 7).


Network Address:

Broadcast Address:


Lets find the wildcard mask of /30.


Subnet Mask: (Network Bits – 1’s, Host Bits – 0’s)


Lets find the wildcard mask of /30.




Now we configure OSPF using process ID 10 (note the process ID may change to something else in real exam).




Seattle#conf t

Seattle(config)#router ospf 10

Seattle(config-router)#network area 21


One of the tasks states that area 21 should not receive any external or inter-area routes (except the default route).


Seattle(config-router)#area 21 stub


Seattle#copy run start


Chicago Configuration:



Password: cisco

Chicago#conf t

Chicago(config)#router ospf 10


We need to add Chicago’s S0/1 interface to Area 21


Chicago(config-router)#network area 21


Again, area 21 should not receive any external or inter-area routes (except the default route). In order to accomplish this, we must stop LSA Type 5 if we don’t want to send external routes. And if we don’t want to send inter-area routes, we have to sto
p LSA Type 3 and Type 4. Therefore we want to configure area 21 as a totally stubby area.


Chicago(config-router)#area 21 stub no-summary


Chicago#copy run start


The other interface on the Chicago router is already configured correctly in this scenario, as well as the New York router so there is nothing that needs to be done on that router.




JS Industries has expanded their business with the addition of their first remote office. The remote office router (R3) was previously configured and all corporate subnets were reachable from R3. JS Industries is interested in using route summarization along with the EIGRP Stub Routing feature to increase network stability while reducing the memory usage and bandwidth utilization to R3. Another network professional was tasked with implementing this solution. However, in the process of configuring EIGRP stub routing connectivity with the remote network devices off of R3 has been lost.


Currently EIGRP is configured on all routers R2, R3, and R4 in the network. Your task is to identify and resolve the cause of connectivity failure with the remote office router R3. Once the issue has been resolved you should complete the task by configuring route summarization only to the remote office router R3.


You have corrected the fault when pings from R2 to the R3 LAN interface are successful, and the R3 IP routing table only contains 2 subnets.







Correct Answer:

Here are the solution as below:

First we have to figure out why R3 and R4 can not communicate with each other. Use the show running-config command on router R3.




Notice that R3 is configured as a stub receive-only router. The receive-only keyword will restrict the router from sharing any of its routes with any other router in that EIGRP autonomous system. This keyword will also prevent any type of route from being sent. Therefore we will remove this command and replace it with the eigrp stub command:


R3# configure terminal R3(config)# router eigrp 123

R3(config-router)# no eigrp stub receive-only

R3(config-router)# eigrp stub

R3(config-router)# end


Now R3 will send updates containing its connected and summary routes to other routers. Notice that the eigrp stub command equals to the eigrp stub connected summary because the connected and summary options are enabled by default.

Next we will configure router R3 so that it has only 2 subnets of network. Use the show ip route command on R3 to view its routing table:




Because we want the routing table of R3 only have 2 subnets so we have to summary sub- networks at the interface which is connected with R3, the s0/0 interface of R4.


There is one interesting thing about the output of the show ip route shown above: the, which is a directly connected network of R3. We can’t get rid of it in the routing table no matter what technique we use to summary the networks. Therefore, to make the routing table of R3 has only 2 subnets we have to summary other subnets into one subnet.


In the output if we don’t see the summary line (like is a summary…) then we should use the command ip summary-address eigrp 123 so that all the ping can work well.


In conclusion, we will use the ip summary-address eigrp 123 at the interface s0/0 of R4 to summary.


R4> enable R4# conf t

R4(config)# interface s0/0

R4(config-if)# ip summary-address eigrp 123


Now we jump back to R3 and use the show ip route command to verify the effect, the output is shown below:





Please notice that the IP addresses and the subnet masks in your real exam might be different so you might use different ones to solve this question.

Just for your information, notice that if you use another network than to summary, for example, if you use the command ip summary-address eigrp 123 you will leave a /16 network in the output of the show ip route command.




But in your real exam, if you don’t see the line “ is a summary, Null0” then you can summarize using the network This summarization is better because all the pings can work well.

Finally don’t forget to use the copy run start command on routers R3 and R4 to save the configurations.


R3(config-if)# end

R3# copy run start

R4(config-if)# end

R4# copy run start


If the “copy run start” command doesn’t work then use “write memory.”



QUESTION 34 is a small IT corporation that has an existing enterprise network that is running IPv6 0SPFv3. Currently OSPF is configured on all routers. However, R4’s loopback address (FEC0:4:4) cannot be seen in R1’s IPv6 routing table. You are tasked with identifying the cause of this fault and implementing the needed corrective actions that uses OPSF features and does not change the current area assignments. You will know that you have corrected the fault when R4’s loopback address (FEC0:4:4) can be seen in RTs IPv6 routing table.


Special Note:

To gain the maximum number of points you must remove all incorrect or unneeded configuration statements related to this issue.








Correct Answer:

Here is the solution below:

To troubleshoot the problem, first issue the show running-config on all of 4 routers. Pay more attention to the outputs of routers R2 and R3 The output of the “show running-config” command of R2:




The output of the “show running-config” command of R3:




We knew that all areas in an Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) autonomous system must be physically connected to the backbone area (Area 0). In some cases, where this is not possible, we can use a virtual link to connect to the backbone through a non-backbone area. The area through which you configure the virtual link is known as a transit area. In this case, the area 11 will become the transit area. Therefore, routers R2 and R3 must be configured with the area <area id> virtual- link <neighbor router-id>command. + Configure virtual link on R2 (from the first output above, we learned that the OSPF process ID of R2 is 1):



R2#configure terminal

R2(config)#ipv6 router ospf 1

R2(config-rtr)#area 11 virtual-link

Save the configuration:


R2#copy running-config startup-config


(Notice that we have to use neighbor router-id, not R2’s router-id + Configure virtual link on R3 (from the second output above, we learned that the OSPF process ID of R3 is 1 and we have to disable the wrong configuration of “area 54 virtual-link”):



R3#configure terminal

R3(config)#ipv6 router ospf 1

R3(config-rtr)#no area 54 virtual-link

R3(config-rtr)#area 11 virtual-link

Save the configuration:


R3#copy running-config startup-config


You should check the configuration of R4, too. Make sure to remove the incorrect configuration statements to get the full points.


R4(config)#ipv6 router ospf 1

R4(config-router)#no area 54 virtual-link



After finishing the configuration doesn’t forget to ping between R1 and R4 to make sure they work.



If you want to check the routing information, use the show ipv6 route command, not “show ip route”.




You are a network engineer with, a small IT company. has two connections to the Internet; one via a frame relay link and one via an EoMPLS link. IT policy requires that all outbound HTTP traffic use the frame relay link when it is available. All other traffic may use either link. No static or default routing is allowed.


Choose and configure the appropriate path selection feature to accomplish this task. You may use the Test Workstation to generate HTTP traffic to validate your solution.





Correct Answer:

Here are the step by Step Solution for this:

1) First create the access list that catches the HTTP traffic:

R1(config)#access-list 101 permit tcp any any eq www

2) Configure the route map that sets the next hop address to be ISP1 and permits the rest of the traffic:

R1(config)#route-map pbr permit 10

R1(config-route-map)#match ip address 101

R1(config-route-map)#set ip next-hop


R1(config)#route-map pbr permit 20

3) Apply the route-map on the interface to the server in the EIGRP Network:


R1(config)#int fa0/1

R1(config-if)#ip policy route-map pbr




First you need to configure access list to HTTP traffic and then configure that access list. After that configure the route map and then apply it on the interface to the server in EIGRP network.




You are a network engineer with, a small IT company. They have recently merged two organizations and now need to merge their networks as shown in the topology exhibit. One network is using OSPF as its IGP and the other is using EIGRP as its IGP. R4 has been added to the existing OSPF network to provide the interconnect between the OSPF and EIGRP networks. Two links have been added that will provide redundancy.


The network requirements state that you must be able to ping and telnet from loopback 101 on R1 to the OPSF domain test address of All traffic must use the shortest path that provides the greatest bandwidth. The redundant paths from the OSPF network to the EIGRP network must be available in case of a link failure. No static or default routing is allowed in either network.

A previous network engineer has started the merger implementation and has successfully assigned and verified all IP addressing and basic IGP routing. You have been tasked with completing the implementation and ensuring that the network requirements are met. You may not remove or change any of the configuration commands currently on any of the routers. You may add new commands or change default values.




Correct Answer:

First we need to find out 5 parameters (Bandwidth, Delay, Reliability, Load, MTU) of the s0/0/0 interface (the interface of R2 connected to R4) for redistribution:

R2#show interface s0/0/0

Write down these 5 parameters, notice that we have to divide the Delay by 10 because the metric unit is in tens of microsecond. For example, we get Bandwidth=1544 Kbit, Delay=20000 us, Reliability=255, Load=1, MTU=1500 bytes then we would redistribute as follows:

R2#config terminal

R2(config)# router ospf 1

R2(config-router)# redistribute eigrp 100 metric-type 1 subnets


R2(config-router)#router eigrp 100

R2(config-router)#redistribute ospf 1 metric 1544 2000 255 1 1500


In fact, these parameters are just used for reference and we can use other parameters with no problem.

If the delay is 20000us then we need to divide it by 10, that is 20000 / 10 = 2000)

For R3 we use the show interface fa0/0 to get 5 parameters too

R3#show interface fa0/0

For example we get Bandwidth=10000 Kbit, Delay=1000 us, Reliability=255, Load=1, MTU=1500 bytes

R3#config terminal

R3(config)#router ospf 1

R3(config-router)#redistribute eigrp 100 metric-type 1 subnets


R3(config-router)#router eigrp 100

R3(config-router)#redistribute ospf 1 metric 10000 100 255 1 1500

Finally you should try to “show ip route” to see the network (the network behind R4) in the routing table of R1 and make a ping from R1 to this network.


If the link between R2 and R3 is FastEthernet link, we must put the command below under EIGRP process to make traffic from R1 to go through R3 (R1 -> R2 -> R3 -> R4), which is better than R1 -> R2 -> R4.

R2(config-router)# distance eigrp 90 105

This command sets the Administrative Distance of all EIGRP internal routes to 90 and all EIGRP external routes to 105, which is smaller than the Administrative Distance of OSPF (110) -> the link between R2 & R3 will be preferred to the serial link between R2 & R4.


The actual OPSF and EIGRP process numbers may change in the actual exam so be sure to use the actual correct values, but the overall solution is the same.




You have been asked to evaluate how EIGRP is functioning in a customer network. Traffic from R1 to R61 s Loopback address is load shared between R1-R2-R4-R6 and R1-R3-R5- R6 paths. What is the ratio of traffic over each path?


















Correct Answer: D


First, find the IP address of the loopback0 interface on R6:




We see that it is, so we issue the “show ip route” command from R1 and see this:




Notice the “traffic share count” shows 19 for the first path, and 80 for the second path.




You have been asked to evaluate how EIGRP is functioning in a customer network. What type of route filtering is occurring on R6?











Distribute-list using an ACL


Distribute-list using a prefix-list


Distribute-list using a route-map


An ACL using a distance of 255


Correct Answer: A


The configuration on R6 is as follows:



This is a standard distribute list using access list number 1.




You have been asked to evaluate how EIGRP is functioning in a customer network. Which key chain is being used for authentication of EIGRP adjacency between R4 and R2?


















Correct Answer: A


R4 and R2 configs are as shown below:




Clearly we see the actual key chain is named CISCO.























You have been asked to evaluate how EIGRP is functioning in a customer network. What is the advertised distance for the network on R1?


















Correct Answer: C


R1’s routing table is as follows




The numbers after the route specify the administrative distance of the route (90 for EIGRP) and the distance metric of that particular route, which is shows as 1810944 for the route.
