    QUESTION NO: 484 A company has one headquarters location and ten remote sites. The remote sites do not need to communicate with each other, just with headquarters. Which of the following is the BEST topology to use?

    • A.

      Mesh

    • B.

      Ring

    • C.

      Hybrid

    • D.

      Star

    Correct Answer
    D. Star
    Explanation
    In a star topology, all remote sites are connected to the headquarters location. This allows for efficient communication between each remote site and the headquarters, as all traffic flows through a central point. Since the remote sites do not need to communicate with each other, a star topology is the best choice as it simplifies the network design and reduces complexity.

    QUESTION NO: 485 A tool that is used to capture usernames and passwords on the network is known as a:

    • A.

      Honey pot.

    • B.

      Firewall.

    • C.

      Sniffer

    • D.

      Proxy server.

    Correct Answer
    C. Sniffer
    Explanation
    A sniffer is a tool used to capture usernames and passwords on the network. It is designed to intercept and analyze network traffic, allowing an attacker to capture sensitive information such as login credentials. Unlike a honey pot, which is a decoy system used to attract and deceive attackers, a sniffer actively intercepts and captures data. A firewall is a network security device that monitors and filters incoming and outgoing network traffic. A proxy server is an intermediary between a client and a server, used for various purposes including caching, filtering, and anonymity.

    QUESTION NO: 486 An administrator is implementing a new wireless network. Which of the following is the highest level of wireless encryption that the administrator can run?

    • A.

      WEP

    • B.

      WPA2 AES

    • C.

      WPA2 TKIP

    • D.

      TTL

    Correct Answer
    B. WPA2 AES
    Explanation
    WPA2 AES is the highest level of wireless encryption that the administrator can run. AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) is a symmetric encryption algorithm that provides a high level of security. WPA2 (Wi-Fi Protected Access 2) is the latest and most secure protocol for wireless networks. It uses AES encryption to protect the data transmitted over the network, making it difficult for unauthorized users to intercept and decode the information. WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) and WPA2 TKIP (Temporal Key Integrity Protocol) are older and less secure encryption methods compared to WPA2 AES.

    QUESTION NO: 490 A technician is troubleshooting the phone service at a site. The technician tests one of the connections on the 66 block and no dial tone is present. Which of the following would be the BEST tool to test the connection at the demarcation point?

    • A.

      Butt set

    • B.

      Cable tester

    • C.

      Multimeter

    • D.

      Toner probe

    Correct Answer
    A. Butt set
    Explanation
    A butt set is the best tool to test the connection at the demarcation point because it allows the technician to directly connect to the phone line and listen for a dial tone. It can also be used to test for noise on the line and check for proper voltage levels. A cable tester is used to test the integrity of network cables, not phone lines. A multimeter is used to measure voltage, current, and resistance, but it does not provide the same level of functionality as a butt set for testing phone lines. A toner probe is used to trace and identify cables, but it does not test for dial tone or other phone line issues.
