1.What’s a routing table? Keeps track of the routes to use for forwarding datat to its destination

2. What is the most common static route used in a host computer? Default gateway

3. What command is used to view a PC computer 's routing table? Netstat –r /route prints

4. What is meant by a O.O.O.O network address entry with a subnet mask of 0.0. 0.0. in a PC 's routing table? Default route

5. What is the IP address and what is it used for?loopback, the data is routed directly back to the source
14. What is the difference between a static and a dynamic routing protocol?Static routing protocol is of limited use for campuswide network routing but is essential when configuring the default route on

An internal routing protocol
c. Used for routing between the same networks
d. Outdated 50. Define the following:
a. Outbound data traffic-data traffic leaving the network
b. Inbound data traffic-data traffic entering the network

Chapter 9

Section 9-2

1. What networking equipment is usually found in the core of a campus network? Switches

3. What is the advantage of using a layer 3 switch in the core of the campus network?uses electronic hardware instead of software to make routing decisions

5. What is the function of the distribution layer in a campus network?Point where the individual LANS connect together.

7. What is the purpose of the access layer? To connect together networking devices in a LAN

9. Why are routers typically not interconnected at the distribution layer?there are network stability issues when routing large amounts of network data traffic if the networks are full or even partially meshed together

11. List three criteria for selecting the network media. Which is the final decision factor? Desired data speed, distance for connection, budget

13. Define load balancing in terms of data traffic flow in a computer network.
Is used as tool to control the direction of the data flow when multiple routes are available.
15. Define per-packet load balancing. Load balance is guaranteed for all interfaces, but there is no guarantee that the packets will arrive at the destination in the proper order.
