N10-005: Exam Answer 1

Q.  What can you use to dynamically assign the same IP address to a printer configured as a network device?

 

A. DNS

B. DHCP reservation

C. SNMP

D. DHCP exclusion

 

B is correct. Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is used to dynamically assign IP addresses to network devices including network printers that can be configured as DHCP clients. A DHCP reservation maps the IP address to the printer’s media access control (MAC) address. Once a DHCP reservation is configured, DHCP will always issue the same IP address to this printer.

 

A is incorrect. Domain Name System (DNS) is used to resolve host names to IP addresses with A records (also called host records). DNS can also resolve IP addresses to host names with pointer (PTR) records, but it does not assign IP addresses.

C is incorrect. The Simple Network Management Protocol is used to administer and monitor network devices.

Dis incorrect. A DHCP exclusion would be used if the printer is manually assigned an IP address within a DHCP scope and you want to ensure that the address is not issued to any other DHCP clients.

 

Objective: 2.3 Explain the purpose and properties of DHCP.

N10-005 Exam: Answer 2

Q. You are troubleshooting a computer system and you determine it has been assigned an IP address of 169.254.45.83. What does this indicate?

 

A. DNS could not be reached

B. DHCP could not be reached

C. The default gateway could not be reached

D. The computer’s firewall is enabled

 

Answer B is correct. An address starting with 169.254 is an Automatic Private Internet Protocol Addressing (APIPA) address and is assigned to a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) client when a DHCP server cannot be reached. Any time you see an APIPA address, you know the computer is a DHCP client and it didn’t receive a DHCP lease.

 

A is incorrect. Domain Name System (DNS) is used for name resolution and would not cause a system to have an APIPA address.

C is incorrect. The default gateway is assigned by DHCP to a DHCP client and an APIPA address indicates that the client was unable to reach a DHCP server. Also, APIPA addresses do not assign a default gateway.

D is incorrect. Enabling the computer’s firewall would not block DHCP traffic and would not prevent the client from receiving a DHCP address.

 

Objective: 2.3 Explain the purpose and properties of DHCP.

N10-005: Answer 3

Q. What function does DHCP provide on a network?

 

A. Dynamically assigns IP addresses

B. Resolves host names to IP addresses

C. Translates public IP addresses to private IP addresses

D. Filters traffic based on ACLs

 

Answer A is correct. Dynamic Host Configuration protocol (DHCP) dynamically assigns IP addresses and other TCP/IP configuration information such as the address of a Domain Name System (DNS) server and the address of the default gateway.

B is incorrect. DNS resolves host names to IP addresses with A (host) resource records.

C is incorrect. Network Address Translation (NAT) translates public IP addresses to private IP addresses and private IP addresses to public IP addresses.

D is incorrect. A firewall will filter traffic in and out of a network using access control lists (ACLs).

Objective: 2.3 Explain the purpose and properties of DHCP.
