RIPv2 Troubleshooting Sim

October 16th, 2016 Go to comments

Refer to the topology below and answer the questions using “show” commands.


Question 1

Server1 and Server2 are unable to communicate with the rest of the network. Your initial check with system administrators shows that IP address settings are correctly configured on the server side. What could be an issue?

A. The VLAN encapsulation is misconfigured on the router subinterfaces.
B. The Router is missing subinterface configuration.
C. The Trunk is not configured on the L2SW1 switch.
D. The IP address is misconfigured on the primary router interface.


Answer: A


Check the configuration of the interface that is connected to Server1 and Server2 on R2 with “show running-config” command.


We see that subinterface E0/1.100 has been configured with VLAN 200 (via “encapsulation dot1Q 200” command) while Server1 belongs to VLAN 100. Therefore this configuration is not correct. It should be “encapsulation dot1Q 100” instead. The same thing for interface E0/1.200, it should be “encapsulation dot1Q 200” instead.

Question 2

Users in the main office complain that they are unable to reach internet sites. You observe that internet traffic that is destined towards ISP router is not forwarded correctly on Router R1. What could be an issue?

Ping to Internet server shows the following results from R1:

Type escape sequence to abort.
Sending 5, 100-byte ICMP Echos to, timeout is 2 seconds:
Success rate is 0 percent (0/5)

A. The next hop router address for the default route is incorrectly configured.
B. Default route pointing to ISP router is not configured on Router R1.
C. Default route pointing to ISP router is configured with AD of 225.
D. Router R1 configured as DHCP client is not receiving default route via DHCP from ISP router.


Answer: B


When all the users cannot reach internet sites we should check on the router connecting to the ISP to see if it has a default route pointing to the ISP or not. Use the “show ip route” command on R1:


We cannot find a default route on R1 (something like this: S* [1/0] via so maybe R1 was not configured with a default route. We can check with the “show running-config” on R1:


We need a default route (like “ip route”) but we cannot find here so we can conclude R1 was not be configured with a default route pointing to the ISP router.

Question 3

Examine R2 configuration, the traffic that is destined to R3 LAN network sourced from Router R2 is forwarded to R1 instead R3. What could be an issue?

R2#traceroute source
Type escape sequence to abort.
Tracing the route to
VRF info: (vrf in name/id, vrf out name/id)
1 0 msec 1 msec 0 msec
2 !H !H *


A. RIPv2 enabled on R3, but R3 LAN network that is not advertised into RIPv2 domain.
B. RIPv2 routing updates are suppressed between R2 and R3 using passive interface feature.
C. RIPv2 not enabled on R3.
D. No issue that is identified; this behavior is normal since default route propagated into RIPv2 domain by Router R1.


Answer: C


First we should check the routing table of R2 with the “show ip route” command.


In this table we cannot find the subnet “” (R3 LAN network) so R2 will use the default route advertised from R1 (with the command “default-information originate” on R1) to reach unknown destination, in this case subnet -> R2 will send traffic to to R1.

Next we need to find out why R3 did not advertise this subnet to R2. A quick check with the “show running-config” on R3 we will see that R3 was not configured with RIP ( no “router rip” section). Therefore we can conclude RIPv2 was not enabled on R3.

Question 4

What is the correct statement below after examining the R1 routing table?

A. Traffic that is destined to from R1 LAN network uses static route instead RIPv2 because the static route AD that is configured is less than the AD of RIPv2
B. Traffic that is destined to from R1 LAN network uses RIPv2 instead of static route because the static route AD that is configured is higher than the AD of RIPv2
C. Traffic that is destined to from R1 LAN network uses static route instead of RIPv2 but the traffic is forwarded to the ISP instead of the internal network
D. Traffic that is destined to from R1 LAN network uses RIPv2 instead of static route because the static route AD that is configured is 255


Answer: B


Surely we have to use the “show ip route” command to check the R1 routing table.


As we see here, 10.10.10/24 is learned from RIP. Notice that although there is a static route on R1 to this destination (you can check with the “show running-config” on R1 to see the line “ip route 200”), this static route is not installed to the routing table because it is not the best path because the Administrative Distance (AD) of this static route is 200 while the AD of RIP is 120 -> R1 chose the path with lowest AD so it chose path advertised via RIP.

    Pass my CCNA Exam this sim was in exam but questions are bit different

  2. Ankur
    May 7th, 2018

    How come is que 4’s answer is B? and how come in the explanation it say Static route have greater AD than RIP??? Static route has AD of 1 right?? so why it says 200??

    @Umer the sims here are good enough for the exam???

    @Ankur Sim is good. I got the same in the exam. I will suggest to understand the logic not memorizing.
    for example ping is not working why is not working?
    Ping is working why is working?

  5. botocador
    May 10th, 2018

    @Ankur, the answer is in the sh run command
    when the static route was entered, they add the number 200 at the end which means the AD is set to 200. 200 is not part of the IP address

    Sinix, yep same here. I could not find a packet tracer files for this sim. only some other ripv2 sim.

    oh well, just study this sim, and remember to use show run and show ip route commands in real exam.

    we have to be prepared for ugly questions about auto-summary in the exam. e.g. you might get asked – networks are subnetted, but in router config, why do the subnetted routes show as:

    and question will want you to disable auto-summary.

    Hy there. are all exam questions Multi choice or what??

  27. zamochit
    August 12th, 2018


    there are the QCM , one answer or multiple answers.
    The sims (where you should config a little, like the vlan LAB and OSPFV3 for exemple)
    And other scenarios where you should check the config and chose the best answer , without modify the config.

    When you modify the config remember to use copy running-config startup-config at the end, just to be sure. i have my exam tomorrow.
    Good luck

    According to the answer for question 3, R1 advertises a default route to R2 through RIP, however, R1 has no default route configured, Is this correct?

    For clearness.
    the last statements said that the AD for the static route is 200 not 1 as the default value, so the router will choose the best path which has the lower AD which is the path that learned from the rip with AD=120.
    But the question is how he knew that the AD for the static route was changed to 200. he is true but there is a missed statement that has to tell you to write down the sh run command.
    So if you write the sh run command down you will see the effect of changing AD.
