What are benefits of using a link-state routing protocol? (Choose all
It uses the Hello protocol to establish adjacencies.
It uses several components to calculate the metric of a route.
Updates are sent only when changes occur in the network.
It is a better protocol than distance-vector is.
Which route type must be redistributed by a routing protocol if other
routers are to learn about it?
Why are passive interfaces used on interfaces where the router partic-
ipates in EIGRP Global mode processes?
To stop unwanted route information from entering the specified
To allow route information to be filtered by an access list
To allow routes to be sent out the specified interface, but deny
route information to enter the interface
To allow routes to enter the interface, but deny any route informa-
tion to exit the specified interface
How is a feasible successor chosen when the successor fails (assuming
that a redundant route exists)? (Choose all that apply.)
The route with the next-lowest metric is chosen.
If a router doesn't have a feasible successor, queries are multicast
to neighboring routers in search of a feasible successor.
The route is removed from the routing table.
The route is flagged as an active state.
