Routing table question

Question from free-tests.com (certguard verified)
You are the network manager of Free-Tests Ltd. Free-Tests Ltd, who are based in Manchester, have recently bought out a rival company with offices in Liverpool, Newcastle and Hull. You are looking at setting up network communication between the multiple sites. Which of the following are features of Static routing. (Select 2)

- Routers share routing information automatically.
- Routing tables are built and maintained manually.
- Routing tables are built and maintained dynamically.
- Routers do not share routing information.

I wasnt sure whether routers share static routes as well, I'd imagine they would as it's part of the route table, right? So the answer would be 1 and 2. They marked the answer wrong. BTW, I cant tell you the answer as they give the answers at the end of the test and I still have about 75 to go!

    So that'll be 2 and 4 then.

    WTF, hey the question got repeated. This time I chose 2 and 4, and it's still being marked wrong. This site doesnt seem much different from proprofs.com either. Simple questions (not exam quality or like the Transcender ones)

    BTW, I scored 89% on a Transcender test last night. Made me feel confident :D

    That would be correct. You enter them manually and they do not share the info. It is very possible to make it so one router can send data but not get a reply back because the other router does not know where to send it and drops the packet.

    lol, yeah well I have been eying the MCSE for a number of years and have read about it on and off for a long time so I check in this side of the forum every once and a while. But thiat is a generic question that applies to networking in general :)

    Well if you set a man on fire he usually will not be alive very long but during that time (the rest of his painful life) he will be very warm... icon_lol.gif

    It's taken from the old saying "Give a man a fish and he'll eat for a night, teach a man to fish and he'll eat for the rest of his life". Basically, you can help those who are willing to help themselves much more effectively, you won't have to keep helping them after the one time. In scheistermeister's case, it's more a matter of solving the problem more efficiently. Build a man a fire and he'll be warm for a night, set a man on fire and he'll be warm for the rest of his life; either way, he'll quit bugging you about being cold. icon_lol.gif
