A router receives information about network 192.168.10.0/24 from multiple sources. What will the router consider the most reliable information about the path to that network?
A. a directly connected interface with an address of 192.168.10.254/24 B. a static route to network 192.168.10.0/24 C. a RIP update for network 192.168.10.0/24 D. an OSPF update for network 192.168.0.0/16 E. a default route with a next hop address of 192.168.10.1 F. a static route to network 192.168.10.0/24 with a local serial interface configured as the next hop
Correct Answer: A
When there is more than one way to reach a destination, it will choose the best one based on a couple of things. First, it will choose the route that has the longest match; meaning the most specific route. So, in this case the /24 routes will be chosen over the /16 routes. Next, from all the /24 routes it will choose the one with the lowest administrative distance. Directly connected routes have an AD of 1 so this will be the route chosen.
The network administrator requires easy configuration options and minimal routing protocol traffic. What two options provide adequate routing table information for traffic that
passes between the two routers and satisfy the requests of the network administrator? (Choose two.)
A. a dynamic routing protocol on InternetRouter to advertise all routes to CentralRouter. B. a dynamic routing protocol on InternetRouter to advertise summarized routes to CentralRouter. C. a static route on InternetRouter to direct traffic that is destined for 172.16.0.0/16 to CentralRouter. D. a dynamic routing protocol on CentralRouter to advertise all routes to InternetRouter. E. a dynamic routing protocol on CentralRouter to advertise summarized routes to InternetRouter. F. a static, default route on CentralRouter that directs traffic to InternetRouter.
Correct Answers: C, F
The use of static routes will provide the necessary information for connectivity while producing no routing traffic overhead.
