GRE Multilink Sim

October 20th, 2016 in LabSim Go to comments

Refer to the topology below and answer the following questions.


Question 1

Why is the Branch2 network unable to communicate with the Server farm 1 network over the GRE tunnel?

A. The GRE tunnel destination is not configured on the R2 router.
B. The GRE tunnel destination is not configured on the Branch2 router.
C. The static route points to the tunnel0 interface that is misconfigured on the Branch2 router.
D. The static route points to the tunnel0 interface that is misconfigured on the R2 router.


Answer: C


The Branch2 network is communicating to the Server farm, which is connected to R2, via GRE Tunnel so we should check the GRE tunnel first to see if it is in “up/up” state with the “show ip interface brief” command on the two routers.

On Branch2:


On R2:


We see interfaces Tunnel0 at two ends are “up/up” which are good so we should check for the routing part on two routers with the “show running-config” command and pay attention to the static routing of each router. On Branch2 we see:


The destination IP address for this static route is not correct. It should be (Tunnel0’s IP address of R2), not -> Answer C is correct.

Note: You can use the “show ip route” command to check the routing configuration on each router but if the destination is not reachable (for example: we configure “ip route” on Branch2, but if is unknown then Branch2 router will not display this routing entry in its routing table.

Note: The IP address or configuration may be different in the exam.

Question 2

Why has the Branch3 router lost connectivity with R1? Use only show commands to troubleshoot because usage of the debug command is restricted on the Branch3 and R1 routers?

A. A PPP chap hostname mismatch is noticed between Branch3 and R1.
B. A PPP chap password mismatch is noticed between Branch3 and R1.
C. PPP encapsulation is not configured on Branch3.
D. The PPP chap hostname and PPP chap password commands are missing on the Branch3 router.


Answer: A


First we should check Branch3 (and R1) with the “show ip interface brief” command to find any Layer1/Layer 2 issue.


We see the interfaces connecting between them are in “up/down” states which indicates an Layer 2 issue so we should check the configuration of these interfaces carefully with the “show running-config” command and pay attention to these interfaces.


and on Branch3:


We learn from above config is R1 is using CHAP to authenticate Branch3 router (via the “ppp authentication chap” command on R1). Branch3 router is sending CHAP hostname “Branch_3” and CHAP password “Branch3_Secret!” to R1 to be authenticated. Therefore we should check if R1 has already been configured with such username and password or not with the “show running-config” command on R1:


On R1 we see the configured username is “Branch3”, not “Branch_3” so the usernames here are mismatched and this is the problem -> Answer A is correct.

Question 3

Which statement about the router configurations is correct?

A. PPP PAP is authentication configured between Branch2 and R1.
B. Tunnel keepalives are not configured for the tunnel0 interface on Branch2 and R2.
C. The Branch2 LAN network is not advertised into the EIGRP network.
D. The Branch3 LAN network is not advertised into the EIGRP network.
E. PPP CHAP is authentication configured between Branch1 and R1.


Answer: D


In this question we have to check each option to see if it is correct. When we check Branch3 router we notice that “network” command is missing under “router eigrp 100” -> Answer D is correct.


Question 4

Why did Branch1 router lose WAN connectivity with R1 router?

A. The IP address is misconfigured on PPP multilink interface on the Branch1 router.
B. The PPP multilink group is misconfigured on the Branch1 serial interfaces.
C. The PPP multilink group is misconfigured on the R1 serial interfaces.
D. The Branch1 serial interfaces are placed in a shutdown condition.


Answer: A


This question clearly stated there is a WAN connectivity issue between R1 and Branch1 so we should check both of them with the “show ip interface brief” command. On R1:


On Branch1:


We can see that although the Multilink1 interfaces are in “up/up” state but they are not in the same subnet. According to the IP address scheme shown on the topology we can deduce the Multilink interface on Branch1 has been misconfigured, it should be instead.

    Failed ICND2 exam today. It is indeed hard and run out of time also.

    This sim was on the exam, but I remembered my answered on Q1 was b, because I saw there was no tunnel destination configure on the tunnel. Is it right or wrong?

  11. failed01
    February 8th, 2017

    As for Q2 my answer was d, because when I show run I did not see the ppp chap username and ppp chap password on Branch3 serial interface configuration. I guess they frequently change the content of the sims configuration even though same scenario, question, and topology.

    I just took and failed 200-105 test. There was a question on it about SNMP and OID, I don’t remember it exactly, been looking for info on it everywhere with no luck. Does anyone out there remember the question I’m referring to? Would really like to know.

    is there any drag and drops questions,
    also is there any holddown timer ,poision revers all of these drag and drop questions,?????

    how many incorrect question do i have in order to pass, let say of my question were , do i still have chance to pass

    Yes, you’ll fail it first time. Not an easy test. Eventually you will succeed.

    For the ICND1 should we be going through the Composite Quizzes also?

    ICND1 – Composite Quizzes
    ICND1 – Security Testlet Simulator
    ICND1 – Show Configuration Simulator
    ICND1 – DHCP Simulator

    Failing is not an option, specially when you’re short on cash!
    Study hard and test your knowledge on regular questions and do the labs and understando how to troubleshoot them and you will pass in 1st attempt!
