  H2P or testinside?
Posted by: raxz - 06-07-2009, 09:25 PM - Forum: CCNP SWITCH 300-115 - Replies (6)

Hi Guys,

I am about to appear for my BCMSN exam. I have used H2P in past and been satisfied with the result. I have recently noticed on this forum there are some posts complaining about some missing questions and suggestions that H2P needs to update its BCMSN exam.

I come across testinside site, and they offer a guaranteed pass, and full refund if one fails. I have not used Testinside before, so I am not too sure whether to go for H2P or testinside?

Has anyone else used Testinside, or the H2P admin has got any convincing argument to make me stay here?

I am not only relying on H2P or Testinside as I am doing my preparation following the Cisco guide book and have some experience.

Any suggestions would be most welcomed!

Could someone please explain the answer and how it relates to the config.  I would also be interested in reasons why the other answers are wrong.

Thanks So Much

View the exhibit. An organization connects two locations, supporting two VLAN's, through the switches shown. Inter-VLAN communication is not required. The network is working properly and there is full connectivity. The organization needs to add additional VLAN's, so it has been decided to inplement VTP. Both switches are configured as VTP server in the same VTP domain. VLANs added to Switch1 are not learned by Switch2 based on this information and the partial configurations in the exhibit, what is the problem?

A. The links between the switches are access links
B. STP has blocked one of the links between the switches, limiting connectivity
C. A router is required to route VTP advertisments between the switches
D. VTP is Cisco propietary and requires a different trunking encapsulation
E. Switch2 should be configured as a VTP client

The answer is A. The links between the switches are access links

But I am confused, the question states the network is working properly and there is full connectivity. Doesn't that mean that the VLAN's can talk to each other across the switches and that trunking is already configured? Also in the exhibit is shows two ports have: Administrative Trunking Encapsulation: dot1q. What does that mean, I thought it to mean those links are configured as trunks. And since trunking negotiation is off, both sides should be configured as a trunk for "full connectivity"

I understand why the other answers are wrong, STP won't block a VTP advertisment on both links; we're not trying to add a L3 device, VTP is propietary but the question mentions nothing of non-cisco equipment; and changing a switch from server to client won't force it to take a VTP update. I thought more likely the rev number might be higher on the switch receiving the update. But that choice isn't there.

Thank You in advance

  Whats the latest version of the official Cisco BSCI Study Guide?
Posted by: kasperoff - 06-04-2009, 08:28 AM - Forum: CCNP ENARSI 300-410 - No Replies

I'm going to start my study for this exam and as always, I want the official Cisco study guide to get the ball rolling. However, on Amazon there seems to be a few different versions.

Building Scalable Cisco Internetworks (BSCI): Authorized Self-study Guide (CCNP Self-study) (Hardcover) - Diane Teare and Catherine Paquet.

CCNP BSCI Official Exam Certification Guide (Hardcover) - Brent Stewart

Which to go for?

I have a question about links between network devices with two different physical speeds and what the STP cost is. In the example it shows a Gig link and an Fe link on the same network segment. Is the STP cost what ever the highest cost interface allows. So if you have a Gig and an Fe on the same link the cost will be 19?

The answer hints at this but does not explicitly say so.

Thanks in advance

I have a problem with the answer in that I do not think that the "line vty 0 4" is really an interface but is a Line.  Now if lines are concidered interfaces the answer that is given seems to be valid.  Could someone clarify this and site documentation that supports this. 

If not access-class should be used on the vty lines or access-group should be used on any interfaces.  either option could be used to control access to the router.

Please Respond

  Thinking about how2pass? Read this!
Posted by: fultonium - 06-01-2009, 08:05 PM - Forum: Exam Experience - Replies (1)

Just wanted to give some feedback on my experience with how2pass and the test itself.

First let me say that I went through the Cisco Networking Academy: CCNA Exploration program and got A's in all four classes.  Not bragging, just trying to give an idea of prep work.  Spent about 2 weeks going through the book "31 Days to CCNA" (review book) while also taking how2pass practice tests (took 1-2 tests a day, each day).  Sat for the exam today and scored a 972.

For anyone thinking about shelling out for how2pass, the practice exam's were dead on in both content and difficulty.  The simlets, simulations and everything were super close to the actual exam.  Some of the questions were so close I barely had to read them, seriously!  Kudos to the staff at how2pass.

I just want to say again, if you want to know where you stand on preparedness for the exam, use how2pass.  I can't speak for other testing sites, but how2pass (at least for CCNA) is solid.  If you're knocking down their practice exams, you will do fine on the live one.

Thanks and good luck!!

  ISCW68 Answer Was a Little Ambiguous
Posted by: JFrost - 05-31-2009, 02:42 AM - Forum: CCNP TSHOOT 300-135 - No Replies

I looked at the following Field Notice from Cisco and it Clarifies alot.  If you have worked with it.  SDM will configure the Crypto Map on the Physical Interface and the Tunnel Interface.  However many manual configurations Only configure on the Physical Interface.

    Physical Interface:  encrypts the entire GRE encapsulated Packet
    Tunnel Interface: Encrypts data then encapsulates with GRE and sends it through the Tunnel

Seems that Prior to 12.2(13)T you must include the Crypto Map on both interfaces.  SDM may still be including this for backwards compatibility.  But to say the least it confused me when I saw it.  Hope this helps anyone else that may have been caught off guard by the question.
