Short Answer

1 What is the purpose of RARP protocol ?


Ans .

The purpose of RARP protocol are as :-

Reverse Address Resolution Protocol (RARP) is a network layerprotocol used


to resolve an IP address from a given hardware address (such as an Ethernet
address). It has been rendered obsolete by BOOTP and the more modern DHCP,
which both support a much greater feature set than RARP.

2 What is the purpose of BOOTP protocol ?


Ans. The purpose of BOOTP protocol are as :BOOTP (Bootstrap Protocol) is a protocol that lets a network user be
automatically configured (receive an IP address) and have an operating
system booted (initiated) without user involvement. The BOOTP server,
managed by a network administrator, automatically assigns the IP address
from a pool of addresses for a certain duration of time.
3 List three parameters that can be used to describe the quality of
service of a particular stream of data?
Ans . The three parameters that can be used to describe the quality
of service of a
particular stream of data as follow : Low throughput.
Dropped packets.
Out-of-order delivery.
Best-effort service.
Differentiated service (also called soft QoS).
Guaranteed service (also called hard QoS).
4 How many bits long is an (i) IPv6 address? (ii) an IPv4 address ?
Ans .
IPv4, which uses 32-bit addresses.

IPv6, addresses are 128-bit hexadecimal numbers.

5 What are two advantages of wireless transmission when compared


with bounded media?
Ans.
The two advantages of wireless transmission when compared
with bounded media are as follows
Unbound transmission media are the ways of transmitting data without
using any cables. Where as Bound transmission media are the cables that are
tangible or have physical existence and are limited by the physical geography.

Wireless LANs are being installed in office and college campuses. This
transmission uses Microwave, Radio wave, Infra red are some of popular unbound
transmission media. Whereas popular bound transmission media in use are
twisted pair cable, co-axial cable and fiber optical cable. Each of them has its own
characteristics like transmission speed, effect of noise, physical appearance, cost etc.

6 What is the role of the MIB in the SNMP protocol?


Ans. The role of the

MIB in the SNMP Protocol are as follows :-

SNMP stands for Simple Network Management Protocol and


consists of three key components: managed devices, agents, and
network-management systems (NMSs). A managed device is a node
that has an SNMP agent and resides on a managed network. These
devices can be routers and access servers, switches and bridges,
hubs, computer hosts, or printers. An agent is a software module
residing within a device. This agent translates information into a
compatible format with SNMP. An NMS runs monitoring applications.
They provide the bulk of processing and memory resources required
for network management.
A management information base (MIB) is a formal description of a set
of network objects that can be managed using the Simple Network
Management Protocol (SNMP). The format of the MIB is defined as part
of the SNMP. (All other MIBs are extensions of this basic management
information base.) MIB-I refers to the initial MIB definition; MIB-II refers
to the current definition. SNMPv2 includes MIB-II and adds some new
objects.
7 List three different security options I can use when I negotiate between an
LDAP client and LDAP server ?

a

Ans .
The three different security options I can use when I
negotiate between an LDAP client and LDAP server are as follows : Selective Listening

IP Firewall
TCP Wrappers.
8 What is the purpose of the mount command in NFS?
Ans.

The purpose of the mount command in NFS are as follows :The mount command instructs the operating system that a file system is ready to use, and
associates it with a particular point in the overall file system hierarchy (its mount point) and sets
options relating to its access. Mounting makes file systems, files, directories, devices and special
files available for use and available to the user. Its counterpart umount instructs the operating
system that the file system should be disassociated from its mount point, making it no longer
accessible and may be removed from the computer. It is important to umount a device before
removing it since changes to files may have only partially been written and are completed as part
of the umount.

9 What is the main file sharing protocol used in Microsoft networks?


Ans . The main file sharing protocol used in Microsoft networks are as
follows :

Common Internet File System (CIFS),


Server Message Block (SMB).
NetBEUI.
NetBIOS.
NetBT.
TCP/IP.

10 What is meant by the statement HTTP is a stateless protocol ?


Ans. HTTP is a stateless protocol. A stateless protocol does not require the server to retain
information or status about each user for the duration of multiple requests.
But some web applications may have to track the user's progress from page to page, for example
when a web server is required to customize the content of a web page for a user. Solutions for these
cases include:

the use of HTTP cookies.

server side sessions,

hidden variables (when the current page contains a form), and

URL-rewriting using URI-encoded parameters, e.g., /index.php?


session_id=some_unique_session_code.

PRACTICAL OBSERVATION INFORMATION FOR STUDENTS


Laboratory Exercises
This information is to be handed to each student to outline the assessment requirements
This assessment is to be undertaken in an actual job workplace or a classroom/simulated
environment. Students are to arrange an appointment with a business client (role-played by the
assessor) to install and configure Windows 2012 Server. The student is to complete the
laboratory tasks
Install the operating system
Install and configure DNS
Change the IP address of the server to assign two static IP addresses 192.168.1.100
and 182.168.1.101 to the adapter on the server.
Assign the DNS address property to be 192.168.1.100
Create a zone myzone.com
Create two host records for the www host, one mapped to 192.168.1.100 and the second
mapped to 192.168.1.101
Test the DNS load balancing by pinging www.myzone.com

Once the laboratory tasks are completed, the student is to show the answers to the Lab to the
trainer to obtain signoff. Modifications may be required, so the student is to ensure the tasks
performed meet the requirements.
This assessment is done during the allocated laboratory/tutorial sessions or can be completed
offsite and brought to the lab for inspection.
Note that the install files for Windows 2012 Server are present in the c:\lab-files folder. You
will also need to enter a 25 digit product key during the install process. The product key
you need is: D2N9P-3P6X9-2R39C-7RTCD-MDVJX.
