ICND2 – IP Routing

April 26th, 2015 in ICND2 200-101 Go to comments

Question 1


Static routing can only be configured for each route manually so it is more secure than dynamic routing which only needs to declare which networks to run -> A is correct.

Also static route does not use any complex algorithm to find out the best path so no routing updates need to be sent out -> reduce routing traffic load. Static routing is useful especially in stub network links.

Note: Stub network (or stub router) is used to describe a network (or router) that does not have any information about other networks except a default route. This type of network (or router) usually has only one connection to the outside.

Question 2


By default a static route has the Administrative Distance (AD) of 1, which is always preferred to dynamic routing protocols. In some cases we may want to use dynamic routing protocols and set static routes as a backup route when the “dynamic” routes fail -> we can increase the AD of that static route to a higher value than the AD of the dynamic routing protocols.

Question 3


Discontiguous networks are networks that have subnets of a major network separated by a different major network. Below is an example of discontiguous networks where subnets and are separated by a network.


If we configure automatic summarization at classful boundaries, users on network cannot communicate with users on network

If you are not clear about automatic summarization please read the last part of this tutorial: http://www.9tut.com/eigrp-routing-protocol-tutorial.

Question 4


Host1 can ping the Serial interface of R2 because R1 has the network of as directly connected route. But R1 does not know how to route to the network of Host2 ( so R1 will drop that ping without trying to send it out S0/0 interface. To make the ping work, we have to configure a route pointing to that network (for example: ip route s0/0 on R1).

Question 5


All the above networks can be summarized to network but the question requires to “represent the LANs in Phoenix but no additional subnets” so we must summarized to network. The Phoenix router has 4 subnets so we need to “move left” 2 bits of “/24”-> /22 is the best choice -> D is correct.

Question 6


From the output we see a line “Gateway of last resort is to network”. Gateway of last resort refers to the next-hop router of a router’s current default route. Therefore all the traffic through this router to destination networks not matching any other networks or subnets in the routing table will be sent to (which is on Serial2) -> packet destined for (or an unknown destination) will be forwarded via Serial2.

An weird thing in the output above is the missing of the asterisk mask (*) which represents for the candidate default route. To set the “Gateway of last resort is to network” as the output above we can use these commands:

ip route
ip default-network

But these commands will create an static routing in the routing table with an asterisk mask. Maybe the output shown above is missing that route.

For more information about the command ip default-network please visit: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/tech/tk365/technologies_tech_note09186a0080094374.shtml.

Question 7


Static routes remain in the routing table even if the specified gateway becomes unavailable. If the specified gateway becomes unavailable, you need to remove the static route from the routing table manually. However, static routes are removed from the routing table if the specified interface goes down, and are reinstated when the interface comes back up.

Therefore the static route will only be removed from the routing table if the S0/0 interface on RTA is shutdown.

    Question 7.
    The question stated that interface FA0/0 is shut down. Per the “explanation”, shouldn’t the static route then be removed from the routing table?? IF that’s the case, then Answer A is not correct.

  2. Clone

    The route is not removed because the interface Fa0/0 that is placed in shutdown state is on RTB. To remove the static route from the RTA routing table, RTA interface S0/0 should become down.

    ah, yes, I see now. Thanks

    This website is great. My boyfriend is studying for his ICND2 so I’m using these questions to create quiz’s for him.

    Keep up the good work.

    Thank you

    Took ICND2 earlier today, 986 / 1000.

    Questions 1, 4, 6 and 7 from this page were on there.

    Can someone explain # 6 I’m not seeing that subnet in the routing table.

  7. ghast
    April 21st, 2014


    For #6, Option C is correct because that route doesn’t exist in the routing table. When you have a default route specified, a packet destined for an address outside of your specified routes will be sent to the default route. In this case, the default route says to send everything to Serial2.

    Passed with 986/1000

    2, 4, 6 and 7 from this page were on the test

    1,2,4,6,7 were there

    Passed today my ICND@2 by 1000. Got different configuration of the Eigrp & frame Relay labs where there were different DLCIs and IP addresses, but same process was used to get answers (show commands, show ip protocols, show ip interface brief ).

    A question about GLBP and a question about netflow were on my test. You can find them here: http://www.examtut.com/2013/09/new-questions-in-ccna-200-120-hsrp-vrrp.html

    Study 9tut and this guy i found him really helpful. He has unique way of teaching http://www.danscourses.com If you can do all his videos again and again. Trust me you will get the concept. Also one thing i learned today is if you don’t know the concept it’ll be hard for you in the exam.

    All the best to every one in their path. Keep me in your good wishes.

    Question 5

    I understand why D is the correct answer but i dont understand why it is a /22. can someone please explain

  13. izzarazzu

    Took the exam today. Pass 986/1000. Q1, Q4, Q6, Q7 were on there.
    Thanks 9tut.

    James, Question 5 is /22 because a Summary Static route has the mask show which bits are the same for multiple routes. Since the routes to summarize in binary end in 000, 001, 010, 011 then the only bit that remains the same for all those is the first zero in each, which is the /22 (“move left” two bits from /24).

    Tested today, 8/20. #2, 3, 4, 5, 7 were on there.

    passed the ICND 1 and going for the ICND 2 and so far this is the first question I am confused on. Question 5 Can someone break the whole question/answer down to dummy terms please?

  17. JB

    Notice that the four “/24” subnets all share the same first 22 bits…

    00001010.00000100.00000000.XXXXXXXX = 10.4.0.XXX
    00001010.00000100.00000001.XXXXXXXX = 10.4.1.XXX
    00001010.00000100.00000010.XXXXXXXX = 10.4.2.XXX
    00001010.00000100.00000011.XXXXXXXX = 10.4.3.XXX

    00001010.00000100.000000XX.XXXXXXXX = /22 for summarization…

    Hi Guys, who will be able to help me with braindumps? everywhere I search on the internet, I have to pay and if you from South Africa, and you must multiply the amount that is in $ by 14 , it comes to a enormous amount 🙂 . Please it would be appreciated if someone can mail me a few. Thank you in advance. nallers@grintek.com

    I got Q2, Q3, Q4, Q7 today in my ICND2 exam.
    Thanks 9tut.

  28. Dude
    June 20th, 2015

    I kinda disagree with Q7 – this is a Serial interface, once RTB S0/0 is shut down, RTA Serial interface will go down as well (to be more specific the status will be protocol down) therefore the Static entry will be removed from the routing table. Please correct me if I am mistaken

  29. Dude
    June 20th, 2015

    misread the question – sorry – it says Should interface Fa0/0 on router RTB shut down, what effect will the shutdown
    and I agree with the answer

    Just took the test today – 980/1000 Q4 came from this page. Thanks 9tuts! Also got Frame Relay, EIGRP and OSPF labs

    THERE IS NO NEED FOR ANY DUMPS – just study one book (Wendel or Todd) and the you tube lessons available free for visual knowledge. Along with 9tuts these are enough for 900 and over marks with ease.

    But you MUST understand the concepts and not mug up the answer as they change the options and answers

    Hey 9tut. Why do you have us install a program for the questions and answers? I’m hesitant about malware

    Would someone please explain q3 regarding Automatic summarization at classful boundaries. I thought only auto -summary involves classless.
    Thanks in adv.
