UDP provides error checking, but not sequencing.


IP is an unreliable, connectionless protocol.


IPv4 and IPv6 use the same packet format.


As a network support technician, you only need to know how to support IPv6.


On IPv4 networks, IGMP operates at the Network layer of the OSI model to manage multicasting.


What is NOT one of the three characteristics of TCP in its role as a reliable delivery protocol?


What field in an IPv4 packet informs routers the level of precedence they should apply when processing an incoming packet?

Differentiated Services (DiffServ)

A modern ASN consists of how many bits?


What netstat command option lists only current connections, including IP addresses and port numbers?


By default, the pathping command sends how many pings per hop?


Which network routing protocol is a path vector protocol that sends updates between routers using TCP?


What protocol replaces ARP, IGMP, and ICMPv4 on IPv6 based networks?


At what layer of the OSI model would a TCP or UDP header be added to a payload?

Layer 4

In a TCP segment, what field indicates how many bytes the sender can issue to a receiver while acknowledgement for the segment is outstanding?

sliding window

Which of the following is not a task handled by a router?

A router forwards broadcasts over the network.

The IP connectionless protocol relies on what other protocol to guarantee delivery of data?


What command can be used on a Cisco router to view the routing table?

show ip route

What parameter can be combined with the traceroute command to instruct it to use ICMP echo requests instead of UDP datagrams?


What TCP field below allows the receiving node to determine whether a TCP segment is corrupted during transmission?


What happens when a router receives a packet with a TTL of 0?

The router drops the packet and sends an ICMP TTL expired message back to the host.

In IPv6, what field is used to indicate what sequence of packets from one source to one or multiple destinations a packet belongs to?

flow label

What IPv4 protocol handles multicasting for tasks such as videoconferencing or teleconferencing?


When viewing the routing table on a UNIX system, what flag indicates if a route is a usable route?


What routing protocol criteria is defined as the time it takes to recognize a best path change in the event of a network outage?

convergence time

What type of routing protocol enables routers to communicate beyond neighboring routers, allowing each router to create a map of an entire network?

link state

What address does ARP work in conjunction with IPv4 to discover?

physical & MAC

Which of the following are types of entries an ARP table contains?

Dynamic & Static

What versions of the IP protocol are used on networks today?

IPv4 & IPv6

Which layers of the OSI model are all routers able to interpret?

4 & 3

What two fields below are used by IPv4 and IPv6 respectively to limit the number of times that a packet can be forwarded on a network?

hop limit & TTL

A globally unique number that identifies an autonomous system. ASNs work similarly to IP addresses that identify individual nodes on a network. Each ASN now consists of 32 bits instead of 16 bits, and they are assigned by IANA.

autonomous system router

The largest IP packet size in bytes allowable by routers in a path without fragmentation and excluding the frame size.

MTU (maximum transmission unit)

A repeated trial message transmitted by the tracert and traceroute utilities to trigger routers along a route to return specific information about the route.


A router that connects an autonomous system with an outside network—for example, the router that connects a business to its ISP.

interior router

Properties of a route used by routing protocols to determine the best path to a destination when various paths are available. Routing metrics may be calculated using any of several variables, including hop count, bandwidth, delay, MTU, cost, and reliability.

routing metric

The router on a network that accepts all unroutable messages from other routers.

gateway of last resort

The delay between the transmission of a signal and its receipt.


A process whereby routers learn about all of the devices on their networks. On IPv4 networks, this process is managed by ARP with help from ICMP. On IPv6 networks, NDP (Neighbor Discovery Protocol) automatically detects neighboring devices and automatically adjusts when nodes fail or are removed from the network.

neighbor discovery

A router that directs data between networks within the same autonomous system.

gateway router

A number indicating a protocol’s reliability, with lower values being given higher priority. This assignment can be changed by a network administrator when one protocol should take precedence over a previously higher-rated protocol on a network.

administrative distance
