Question about identifying utilities

redline5thredline5th Member Posts: 119
When it says:

Given a troubleshooting scenario, select the appropriate network utility from the following:
• Tracert / traceroute
• ping
• arp
• netstat
• nbtstat
• ipconfig / ifconfig
• winipcfg
• nslookup / dig

Does it expect you to know the switches involved with each utility like -s, -a, -d etc?

Or do I just need to know the utility in general?

    • ipconfig /all, /flushdns, /registerdns, /release, /renew
    • winipcfg
    • nslookup set type=mx mail record for example, could be ns, srv etc.

    I have to admit I forget the linux ones.

    Most of them have about 3-5 different switches per utility. It's either all or nothing.

    I didn't know if the Network+ exam covered switches or just the utility as a whole.

    Can anyone say for sure?

    I remember having some questions on ipconfig, arp, netstat, nbtstat, ping. Wanboy67's list of switches will get you through the exam. I would practice the switches, that way you will get some hands on.
