    What does DHCP stand for?

    • A.

      Distinct Host Config Protocol

    • B.

      Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol

    • C.

      Dynamic Host Computer Protocol

    Correct Answer
    B. Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol
    Explanation
    DHCP stands for Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol. This protocol is used to automatically assign IP addresses and other network configuration settings to devices on a network. It allows for the efficient management and allocation of IP addresses, ensuring that each device connected to the network has a unique address. By dynamically assigning IP addresses, DHCP simplifies network administration and eliminates the need for manual configuration.

    What does DHCP hand out?

    • A.

      IP Address

    • B.

      DNS Server

    • C.

      Subnet Mask

    • D.

      Default Gateway

    • E.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    E. All of the above
    Explanation
    DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) is a network protocol that automatically assigns IP addresses and other network configuration settings to devices on a network. The DHCP server hands out IP addresses, DNS server addresses, subnet masks, and default gateway addresses to devices that request them. Therefore, the correct answer is "All of the above" because DHCP can provide all of these network configuration settings to devices on a network.

    If you want to make sure that a printer or computer always gets the same IP address, what do you do?

    • A.

      Give the device a static IP Address

    • B.

      Turn on DHCP

    • C.

      Reserve the MAC address in the DHCP server

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Give the device a static IP Address
    C. Reserve the MAC address in the DHCP server
    Explanation
    To ensure that a printer or computer always gets the same IP address, you can give the device a static IP address. This means manually assigning a specific IP address to the device, which will not change unless it is manually reconfigured. Additionally, you can reserve the MAC address of the device in the DHCP server. This ensures that the DHCP server always assigns the same IP address to the device based on its unique MAC address. By combining these two methods, you can guarantee that the device will consistently have the same IP address.

    What does DNS stand for?

    • A.

      Domain Name Service

    • B.

      Dynamic Name Servent

    • C.

      Domain Numbering System

    Correct Answer
    A. Domain Name Service
    Explanation
    DNS stands for Domain Name Service. It is a system that translates domain names (such as www.example.com) into IP addresses (such as 192.168.0.1) so that computers can communicate with each other on the internet. The DNS system acts as a directory that allows users to access websites and other online resources by typing in easy-to-remember domain names instead of complex IP addresses.

    If you want to resolve the name www.google.com, what is being used to find the website?

    • A.

      DHCP

    • B.

      DNS

    • C.

      Chuck Norris

    Correct Answer
    B. DNS
    Explanation
    When resolving the name www.google.com, DNS (Domain Name System) is being used to find the website. DNS is a system that translates domain names into IP addresses, allowing users to access websites using easily recognizable names instead of numerical IP addresses. It acts as a directory that matches the human-readable domain names to the corresponding IP addresses of the servers hosting the websites. DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) is responsible for assigning IP addresses to devices on a network, while Chuck Norris is a humorous option unrelated to the task of resolving domain names.

    Which is the strongest Encryption listed?

    • A.

      WEP

    • B.

      WPA

    • C.

      WPA2

    Correct Answer
    C. WPA2
    Explanation
    WPA2 is the strongest encryption listed among WEP, WPA, and WPA2. WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) is an older encryption standard that is now considered weak and easily compromised. WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) is an improvement over WEP but still has some vulnerabilities. WPA2 (Wi-Fi Protected Access 2) is the most secure encryption protocol currently available and is recommended for protecting wireless networks. It uses stronger encryption algorithms and has better security features compared to WEP and WPA.

    What are the benefits of a Firewall?

    • A.

      Allows for VPN access

    • B.

      Prevents the internet from accessing your LAN

    • C.

      Can securely allow the internet to access some of your servers

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Allows for VPN access
    B. Prevents the internet from accessing your LAN
    C. Can securely allow the internet to access some of your servers
    Explanation
    A firewall provides several benefits. Firstly, it allows for VPN access, which enables secure remote connections to a private network. Secondly, it prevents the internet from accessing your LAN, acting as a barrier between your internal network and external threats. Lastly, a firewall can securely allow the internet to access some of your servers, ensuring that only authorized traffic is allowed through and protecting your network from unauthorized access.

    What is the benefit of a VPN?

    • A.

      VPN's allow you to work faster

    • B.

      A VPN allows you to be on the network as if you are sitting at your desk

    • C.

      You don't need internet access for a VPN

    Correct Answer
    B. A VPN allows you to be on the network as if you are sitting at your desk
    Explanation
    A VPN allows you to be on the network as if you are sitting at your desk. This means that you can access all the resources and files on the network, just as if you were physically present in the office. This is particularly useful for remote workers or individuals who need to access company resources while traveling or working from a different location. With a VPN, you can securely connect to the network and work as if you were physically present, increasing productivity and efficiency.

    Which client would benefit from a VPN the most?

    • A.

      A client that has only desktop computers and multiple locations

    • B.

      A client that has laptops and has a mobile sales team

    • C.

      A client that is a 24 hr shop and does not allow overtime

    Correct Answer
    B. A client that has laptops and has a mobile sales team
    Explanation
    A client that has laptops and has a mobile sales team would benefit from a VPN the most. This is because a VPN (Virtual Private Network) provides a secure and encrypted connection over the internet, allowing remote users to access the client's network resources as if they were directly connected to the local network. In the case of a client with laptops and a mobile sales team, the VPN would enable secure access to the client's network and resources while the sales team is on the go, ensuring that sensitive data remains protected and communication is secure.

    What is wireless guest services?

    • A.

      Allows users to access the internet only via wireless

    • B.

      Allows users to access the internet and the LAN via wireless

    • C.

      Allows users to access the internet, LAN and WAN via wireless

    Correct Answer
    A. Allows users to access the internet only via wireless
    Explanation
    Wireless guest services refers to a system that allows guests or visitors to access the internet using a wireless connection. This means that they can connect to the internet without the need for any physical cables or wired connections. However, this system only provides internet access and does not allow users to access the local area network (LAN) or wide area network (WAN) through the wireless connection.
