ICND1 – IP Routing 3

June 14th, 2017 in ICND1 100-105 Go to comments

Note: The ICND1 exam requires candidates to understand basic knowledge of dynamic routing protocols (RIP, EIGRP, OSPF).

Question 1

Question 2


The Administrative Distance (AD) of popular routing protocols is shown below. You should learn them by heart:

Note: The AD of iBGP is 200

The smaller the AD is, the better it is. The router will choose the routing protocol with smallest AD.

In this case EIGRP with AD of 90 is the smallest one.

Question 3

Question 4

Question 5

Question 6


After resolving a browser URL to an IP address (via DNS server), the workstation must learn the MAC address of the server so that it can create a complete packet (a complete packet requires destination MAC and IP address, source MAC and IP address). Therefore the workstation must use ARP to find out the MAC address from the IP address.

Question 7


In this topology, R2 is a stub router with only one connection to the HQ network so the best way to configure routing is to set a static route (default route) to R1.

Question 8

Question 9

Question 10


Link-state protocol uses hello packets to discover neighbors and establish adjacencies. After that, the routers begin sending out LSAs to every neighbor (each received LSA is copied and forwarded to every neighbor except the one that sent the LSA)

Question 11


When one route is advertised by more than one routing protocol, the router will choose to use the routing protocol which has lowest Administrative Distance. The Administrative Distances of popular routing protocols are listed below:

    Is this true “Note: The ICND1 exam requires candidates to understand basic knowledge of dynamic routing protocols (RIP, EIGRP, OSPF).”? I do not see in the Cisco list of topics for ICND1 neither EIGRP nor OSPF, just RIPv2 and Static routing

    @h1 yes it is true. you do not need to know how to configure them but you do need to have a basic understanding on how they operate.
