hi to all,
I have started preparing for CCNA and got many doubts will reading ... few are....
1. Say Two routers connect each other with a ethernet interface
At one router , i have enable rip , network 172.16.20.0
another one , i have enable igrp 100, network 172.16.20.0
Will the routing take place?
what is the 100(autonomous no) mean in igrp
2. What is auto config IP means(169.x.x.x)
I found that if there is no DHCP server or a static address set on an adapter , the adapter provides the auto config IP address
Does it mean that the adapter works fine?
If i connect two computer with a cross-over cable and each of them gets an auto config IP address - will it able to ping the other computer with the auto config IP address? i dont think so
In this case - i feel the whole 169 subnet is wasted.Isn't it?
3. What is 1394 NET adapter that gets loaded in WinXP? i found that it's something to do with firewire - but is it physical connector found on the back of the computer?
4. WAN MIN port - Gets installed when we install a Network adapter? what does this mean?( i seached on the web - but didn't understand)
