Chapter 3 – CCNA 1
01. What are two forms of application layer software? (Choose two.)
02. What is the purpose of resource records in DNS?
- temporarily holds resolved entries;
- used by the server to resolve names;
- sent by the client to during a query;
- passes authentication information between the server and client .
03. What three protocols operate at the Application layer of the OSI model? (Choose three.)
- ICMP .
04. Which application layer protocols correctly match a corresponding function? (Choose two.)
- DNS dynamically allocates IP addresses to hosts;
- HTTP transfers data from a web server to a client;
- POP delivers email from the client to the server email server;
- SMTP supports file sharing;
- Telnet provides a virtual connection for remote access .
05. As compared to SSH, what is the primary disadvantage of TELNET?
- not widely available;
- does not support encryption;
- consumes more network bandwidth;
- does not support authentication.
06. What are three properties of peer-to-peer applications? (Choose three.)
- acts as both a client and server within the same communication;
- requires centralized account administration;
- hybrid mode includes a centralized directory of files;
- can be used in client-server networks;
- requires a direct physical connection between devices;
- centralized authentication is required.
07. Which email components are used to forward mail between servers? (Choose two.)
08. What application layer protocol describes the services that are used for file sharing in Microsoft networks?
09. Which statements are correct concerning the role of the MTA in handling email? (Choose three.)
- routes email to the MDA on other servers;
- receives email from the client’s MUA;
- receives email via the POP3 protocol;
- passes email to the MDA for final delivery;
- uses SMTP to route email between servers;
- delivers email to clients via the POP3 protocol.
10. How does the application layer on a server usually process multiple client request for services?
- ceases all connections to the service;
- denies multiple connections to a single daemon;
- suspends the current connection to allow the new connection;
- uses support from lower layer functions to distinguish between connections to the service .
11. Which layer of the OSI model supplies services that allow user to interface with the network?
12. What is the automated service that matches resource names with the required IP address?
- 65520 .
14. What are two characteristics of peer-to-peer networks? (Choose two.)
- one way data flow;
- decentralized resources;
- centralized user accounts;
- resource sharing without a dedicated server .
15. A network administrator is designing a network for a new branch office of twenty-five users. What are the advantages of using a client- server model? (Choose two.)
- centralized administration;
- does not require specialized software;
- security is easier to enforce;
- lower cost implementation;
- provides a single point of failure.
16. Which two protocols are used to control the transfer of web resources from a web server to a client browser? (Choose two.)
17. What is the role of the OSI application layer?
- provides segmentation of data;
- provides encryption and conversion of data;
- provides the interface between the applications on either end of the network;
- provides control of all the data flowing between the source and destination devices .
18. A small home network has been installed to interconnect three computers together for gaming and file sharing. What two properties represent this network type? (Choose two.)
- User accounts are centralized.
- Security is difficult to enforce.
- Specialized operating system software is required.
- File permissions are controlled by a single computer.
- A computer that responds to a file sharing request is functioning as a server.
19. What application layer protocol is commonly used to support for file transfers between a client and a server?
20. What are two characteristics of clients in data networks? (Choose two.)
- use daemons;
- initiate data exchanges;
- are repositories of data;
- may upload data to servers;
- listen for requests from servers .
