In preparation for my CCNA exam I found a test question that is a bit confusing. The config is as follows:
Note: the routing protocol is rip
(config) int e0
(config-if)ip address 192.168.81.33 255.255.255.224
(config) int s1
config-if)ip address 192.168.81.65 255.255.255.224
The question never shows the network statements.
Since rip is a classfull routing protocol I would think that the 255.255.255.224 subnet mask is pointless.
I will not advertise that subnet right?
So since it wont advertise that subnet the subnet mask on both interfaces should be 255.255.255.0
If the routing protocol was eigrp,ospf, or ripv2 you would be okay with the
255.255.255.224 subnet mask. The above routing protocols support vlsm.
Am I on the right track or am I missing somthing?
Thank you in advance.
