CCNA Exploration 2, Chapter 9. “EIGRP” Worksheet #1


1


Name:

1.

Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP) is a _________________,
___________________ routing protocol that was released in 1992 with IOS 9.21.
As its name suggests, EIGRP is an enhancement of Cisco IGRP (Interior
Gateway Routing Protocol).
Both are __________________________ protocols
and only operate on ___________________ routers.

2.

EIGRP includes several features that are not commonly found in other distance
vector routing protocols. These features include:






3.

EIGRP used to be commonly r
eferred to as a “hybrid” routing protocol. Why
does Cisco no longer refer to EIGRP this way?




4.


List and compare the operations of EIGRP as compared to Traditional Distance
Vector Routing Protocols:

7.

How does EIGRP achieve loop
-
free paths without the use of holdown timers?







8.

List the three Type/Length/Values (TLV) types, and their
Hexadecimal
equivalent, that are found in an encapsulated EIGRP Message:






9.

What is the value of the protocol field in an EIGRP packet header?


10.


What is the IP destination multicast address in an EIGRP packet header?


11.

What is the destination MAC multicas
t address in an EIGRP packet header?


12.

What are the EIGRP packet types that may be specified in the Opcode field of
the EIGRP packet header?

13.

What is the Autonomous System (AS) number and why is it significant to the
EIGRP routing process?




14.


What are the

K1 and K3 fields used to specify?



15.


The _________________________________ is the amount of time the EIGRP
neighbor receiving a message should wait before considering the advertising
router to be down.

16.

Delay is calculated as the __________________________
_________ in units of
___________________________.

17.

Bandwidth is the _____________________________________ of any interface
along the route.

18.


Explain the difference in the IP Internal message and the IP external message:




19.


EIGRP has the capability for ro
uting several different protocols including IP, IPX,
and AppleTalk using ___________________________________________.
______________________ are responsible for the specific routing tasks for each
______________________ layer protocol.

20.


Explain RTP and how

EIGRP uses it. What is the difference between “reliable”
RTP and “unreliable” RTP?

21.


RTP can send packets either as a ________________ or a _______________.
Multicast EIGRP packets use the reserved multicast address of
_________________.

22.


Explain the
Hello Packets that EIGRP uses:




23.


Explain Update and ACK packets:




24.

Explain Query and Reply Packets:





25.

An EIGRP router assumes that as long as it is receiving __________________
from a neighbor, the neighbor and its routes remain viable.


26.

On most netw
orks EIGRP Hello packets are sent every ___________seconds.
On multipoint nonbroadcast multiaccess networks (NBMA) such as X.25, Frame
Relay, and ATM interfaces with access links of T1 (1.544 Mbps) or slower, Hellos
are ________________ every _____________
__seconds.

27.

By default, the hold time is _______________________ times the Hello interval,
or _____________seconds on most networks and _____________ seconds on
low speed NBMA networks.

28.


Explain how EIGRP uses Partial and Bounded updates to minimize bandw
idth
usage:




29.


EIGRP has a default administrative distance of ______ for internal routes and
___________ for routes imported from an external source, such as default
routes.

30.

EIGRP has a third AD value, of __________, for summary routes.

37.


What is a “wildcard mask” and why is it used with EIGRP?



38.


Use the ___________________________________ command to view the
____________________table and verify that EIGRP has established an
_____
_______________ with its neighbors.

39.


If the ping to an adjacent (neighbor) router is successful and EIGRP still does
not see the router as a neighbor, what configurations should you examine?
