Hotspot Frame-relay Question



(In the old days, this question was a multi-choice question but Cisco upgraded it into a lab-sim question. Therefore, instead of listing all the configuration as above, you have to type show frame-relay map and show running-config to get its configuration)

Note: If you are not sure about Frame-Relay, please read my Frame Relay tutorial.

Question 1:

What destination Layer 2 address will be used in the frame header containing a packet for host

A – 704
B – 196
C – 702
D – 344


Answer: C

Question 2:

A static map to the S-AMER location is required. Which command should be used to create this map?

A – frame-relay map ip 704 broadcast
B – frame-relay map ip 196 broadcast
C – frame-relay map ip 702 broadcast
D – frame-relay map ip 344 broadcast


Answer: B

Question 3:

Which connection uses the default encapsulation for serial interfaces on Cisco routers?

A – The serial connection to the MidEast branch office
B – The serial connection to the DeepSouth branch office
C – The serial connection to the NorthCentral branch office
D – The serial connection to the Multinational Core


Answer: A

Question 4:

If required, what password should be configured on the router in the MidEast branch office to allow a connection to be established with the Dubai router?

A – No password is required
B – Enable
C – Scr
D – Telnet
E – Console


Answer: A or D (because maybe there are 2 versions of this question, depending on the output of “show running-config” command, please read the explanation below)


This question is not clear for a long time but now maybe the trick was solved. What Cisco wants to ask is the word used as password, not the type of connection, so in the exam you might see some strange words for answers like “En8ble”, “T1net”, “C0nsole”. All you have to do is to use the command “show running-config” as wx4 mentioned below to find the answer.

wx4 commented:

Q4: if password required which?
in my example it was connection to North!

How to figure out which pw is required?

#show running-config

1. check the interface to the router you need connection to. If there is “ppp authentication” you need a password!

2. you will find the password on the top of your running-config output

check the area:

username North password c0nsole
username xxxxx yyyyy

in my case it was c0nsole, in your case it can be no password needed or a different password.

If you are still not clear, please read anton‘s comment:

A big question I noticed here was about the FR Lab regarding the password. You have to perform a show running-config and look for USERNAME and PASSWORD.
username South_Router password c0nsol3
username North_Router password t31net

Obviously this has to be en PPP encapsulation, if asked for a posible password for SOUTH_ROUTER you pick c0nsol3, and for NORTH_ROUTER you pick t31net. If you’re running HDLC, i would pick “no password is required”.

    @Lukas and @Cleo I’m a baby. Pls educate me.

    Regarding Q1. In one comment Lukas says by default router would drop a broadcast. If that is true
    B is correct bcoz if it’s default, then router doesn’t need any specific configuration to drop that. But Cleo’s explanation also sounds great. I don’t understand which is right. In a dump I’ve seen answer is B. I’m totally confused
