go and buy a couple of routers and a switch or two. even a couple of 2501s would be great for you to practice on.

are you looking for sample configurations? i'm having a hard time truely deciphering what you are trying to ask.

Hi and thanks for the reply,

basically what i am saying is that

part of the icnd creteria is to configure ip address, subnet masks and gateway address on routers and hosts.

so for example say i get a simulation asking me to do just that.

what is being emplied by when refering to hosts

hope that helps.

You will get questions such as

Which of the following IP addresses are not in the same subnet as, mask








If mask were used with a class C network, how many subnets could exist, with how many hosts per subnet.

You will not be asked to configure IP addresses on a host, as the method is different depending upon the operating system. You will be expected to be able to determine if the host IP address, mask and gateway are appropriate for the network.

when they use the word "host" they are referring to a computer (be it a server or workstation - but typically, it means a workstation, ie a PC).

please explain. i really dont understand what you are asking.

basically i had simulator asking me to

cofigure a network.

ip address scheme rip network statments

clocking etc, the question also ask to configure the hosts default gateway.

is it safe to assume they are refering to the e0 interface (router port) as the defualt gateway witch a host is connected and not configure the host it self.

its was just i was unsure as to what was being asked, very limited info provided on sim

does that help

okay, i think i understand you. you thought the sim was asking you to configure the host itself, correct? if so, then you misread the problem. i believe they just wanted the router configured for the proper default gateway that is acting as the default gateway for the host. make sense?

i see, it was 8.30 am when i took the test!

my fault really.

thanks for that i just wanted to be sure for next time.

the exam is hardly generous with its time it gives you!

Thanks People.
