1. Answer A

2. Answer E

Distribution layer (Workgroup layer): Ensures packets are properly routed between subnets and VLANs using LAN-based routers and Layer 3 switches. In the Distribution layer are:
  • Firewalls, security, network policies, and network address translation (NAT) are configured.
  • Routing between workgroups and VLANs is accomplished.
  • Access lists, packet filtering, and queuing are implemented.
3. Answer A

Router#configure terminal
Router(config)#access-list ?
 <1-99>  IP standard access list
 <100-199> IP extended access list
 <1100-1199> Extended 48-bit MAC address access list
 <1300-1999> IP standard access list (expanded range)
 <200-299> Protocol type-code access list
 <2000-2699> IP extended access list (expanded range)
 <700-799> 48-bit MAC address access list
 rate-limit Simple rate-limit specific access list

4. Answer A

This standard ACL denys traffic from the network and allows everything else.

5. Answer B 

ISL is a Cisco proprietary frame tagging method and therefore only works with Cisco switches.

IEEE 802.1Q is the networking standard that supports virtual LANs (VLANs) on an Ethernet network.

6. Answer B

When a router is out-of-band (out of the network) you would connect remotely via a modem attached to the auxiliary port.
