Basic Routing Principles (8 points)
 
 
Static Routing
 
 
Question
Answer
24
When the IOS learns about a remote network and the interface it will use to reach that network, it adds that route to the ___ ___ (2 words) . . . .  
25
as long as the ___ ___ (2 words) is enabled.
 
26
Static routes are denoted with the code ___ in the routing table.  
27
List and describe three situations in which static routes should be used (use Answer cells 27, 28, and 29) for the three answers.  
28
 
 
29
 
 
 
 
Dynamic Routing
 
Dynamic routing protocols are used by routers to share information about the reachability and status of remote networks. Dynamic routing protocols perform several activities.  
 
Question
Answer
30
____ ___ (2 words), which is a routing protocol’s ability to share information about the networks it knows about with other routers that are also using the same routing protocol.  
31
____ routing tables, which is a routing protocol’s ability to compensate for any topology changes without involving the network administrator.  
 
 
IP address Assignment Exercise (16 points)
 

Figure 1
 
Understanding a router’s place in the network is a prerequisite to moving ahead in your studies of routing and routing protocols. You studied routers extensively in Chapter 1, “Introduction to Routing and Packet Forwarding.” The following sections review some of the basic skills you need to progress to the next step: static routing.    

Refer to the topology shown in Figure 1 and document the address scheme. Use the table below to document the IP addresses for all the interfaces. Use the following guidelines, assign addresses from the indicated subnets to the interfaces on the routers and the PCs.    

• Assign the first IP address for all LANs to the router interface. • Assign HQ the first IP address for all WAN links to Branch routers. • Assign the second IP address from each LAN subnet to the PC on that LAN • See “Introducing...
