Protocol Quizzes & Trivia

Like any other lines of work, Networking has protocols and standards, which are meant to guide the profession. Players need to full understand all of these to well execute their roles. Al the best as you take up the challenge.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 
    ______is a protocol suite (which means there are many protocols in one) that was developed by Novell and was very popular on older NetWare networks. However, newer versions of NetWare (NetWare 5.x and above) have moved away from it and are using TCP/IP as the preferred protocol. Microsoft refers to this protocol as NWLink (NetWare Link).
  • 2. 
    ________ is a transport protocol developed by IBM but adopted by Microsoft for use in earlier versions of Windows and DOS.  This protocol is commonly found in smaller networks due to the fact that it is a nonroutable protocol.
  • 3. 
    NetBEUI has a close friend, _______, with which it works closely when communicating with systems on the network. It is an application programming interface (API) that is used to make network calls to remote systems. When you install NetBEUI, it includes this protocol, and it relies on it for session management functionality. Also, it is nonroutable but may be installed with other routable protocols such as IPX/SPX or TCP/IP to allow it's traffic to travel across networks.
  • 4. 
    This protocol has two communication modes, Session mode and Datagram mode.
  • 5. 
    This communication mode is used for connection-oriented communication in which NetBIOS would be responsible for establishing a session with the target system, monitoring the session to detect any errors in transmission, and then recovering from those errors by retransmitting any data that went missing or was corrupt.
  • 6. 
    This communication mode Is used for connectionless communication in which a session is not needed. It also is used for any broadcast by NetBIOS. It does not support error detection and correction services, which are therefore the responsibility of the application using NetBIOS.
  • 7. 
    ______ is a routable protocol that was built by Novell and used in older version of Netware.
  • 8. 
    This protocol is responsible for the routing of packets, it is also a connectionless, unreliable transport.
    • A. 

      IPX

    • B. 

      SPX

  • 9. 
    This protocol is responsible for reliable delivery.  It is a connection-oriented protocol that will ensure that packets that are not received at the destination are retransimitted on the wire.
    • A. 

      IPX

    • B. 

      SPX

  • 10. 
    This protocol is a routable protocol that is used primarily in Macintosh environments to connect multiple systems together in a network environment.  It was implemented in two phases, known as phase 1 and phase 2, with the second phase being more popular today.
  • 11. 
    This phase of the AppleTalk protocol was designed for small workgroup environments and therefore supports a much smaller number of nodes on the network. It supports nonextended networks; each network segment is allowed to be assigned only a single network number, and only one zone is allowed in a nonextended network. A zone is a logical grouping of nodes—the network administrator will assign nodes to a particular zone.
    • A. 

      1

    • B. 

      2

  • 12. 
    This phase was designed for larger networks and supports more than 200 hosts on the network.It supports extended networks, thereby allowing one network segment to be assigned multiple network numbers and allowing for multiple zones on that network segment. Each node is part of a single zone on an extended network.
    • A. 

      1

    • B. 

      2

  • 13. 
    This protocol is unsecure and requires configuration when installing.  However, it can be used to connect dissimilar environments together.
  • 14. 
    This is the only protocol that is nonroutable.
    • A. 

      NetBEUI

    • B. 

      IPX/SPX

    • C. 

      AppleTalk

    • D. 

      TCP/IP

  • 15. 
    OSI stands for _______ _________ ___________
  • 16. 
    ISO stands for  ________ _________ _________
  • 17. 
    TCP is an example of a transport protocol responsible for:
    • A. 

      Reliable delivery

    • B. 

      Unreliable delivery

  • 18. 
    UDP is an example of a transport protocol responsible for:
    • A. 

      Reliable delivery

    • B. 

      Unreliable delivery

  • 19. 
    A reliable dialog between two computers is called a ________________.
  • 20. 
    _____________ communication is a form of communication in which the sending system does not “introduce” itself—it just fires the data off. Also, the destination computer does not notify the source when the information is received. This type of communication can be unreliable because there is no notification to guarantee delivery. It can be faster than the other type of communication because the overhead of managing the session is not there, and after the information is sent, there is no second step to ensure proper receipt of information.
  • 21. 
    This type of communication means data is sent without acknowledgment of receipt.
    • A. 

      Unreliable

    • B. 

      Connectionless

  • 22. 
    This type of communication means that a session is not established before transmitting.
    • A. 

      Unreliable

    • B. 

      Connectionless

  • 23. 
    This protocol runs at layer 3 and 4 but the Network+ exam only considers layer 3 as the correct answer.  It is not connection oriented.  It is routable.  It is an unreliable communication.
    • A.

    This protocol is a transport protocol used by IPX for connection-oriented communication.  It is responsible for breaking the message into manageable packets and ensuring the data reaches the destination.  It runs at layer 4.

  • 25. 
    This protocol is responsible for the logical addressing and routing of messages across the network. It does not ensure the delivery of the packets; that is the responsibility of higher-layer protocols, such as TCP. This protocol is fully capable of running over either Token Ring or Ethernet networks. It is a layer 3 protocol.
