Distribute List

July 26th, 2017 in ROUTE 300-101 Go to comments

Question 1

Question 2


A distribute list is used to filter routing updates either coming to or leaving from our router. In this case, the “out” keyword specifies we want to filter traffic leaving from our router. Access-list 2 indicates only routing update for network is allowed (notice that every access-list always has an implicit “deny all” at the end).

Question 3


With EIGRP or OSPF running on a network, the “passive-interface” command stops both outgoing and incoming routing update (while RIP passive interface command will prevent RIP updates from being sent on the interface). Therefore “passive-interface” is not a good answer.

Distribute-list is used to control routing updates either coming to your router or leaving from our router so this is a better choice. For example we can prevent routing updates from sending out Fa0/0 with this command:

Router(config)#access-list 2 deny any
Router(config)#router ospf 1
Router(config-router)#distribute-list 2 out fa0/0

    for me E should be right because there’s no permit any in the access-list so it will block anything aside from the permitted IP.
    This is just a tricky question.

    Here is the reason for Q1

    A. Traffic is not blocked by ACL. It is permitted outbound. There is no inbound ACL so it is permitted.

    B. Network statement is not needed on Router B since it is not a directly connected subnet

    C. It will be in the routing table but not advertised out s0

    D. Ping will not work either way. Remember that for ping to work, there must be both transmit and receive. This is very fundamental.

    Dude, I failed today with a 640. The ‘300-101: Implementing Cisco IP Routing’ exam is completely different then what is on this site. Not even close. There are maybe 10 questions that are the same… What happened???

    Hello everyone, someone knows why the sim in the exam 300-101, do not accept the command ( copy running-config startup-config), is this command necessary. ? only accept this command in the SIM OSPF stub. when I put the command, showed me this ” Command is not implemented”

    Are we certain Q3 is correct?

    Per Cisco the passive-interface command – “With most routing protocols, the passive-interface command restricts outgoing advertisements only”

    It does not stop incoming routing updates, only outgoing.

    Q3 – please update answer to C

    per cisco – “Using the passive interface command can prevent routers from sending routing updates through a router interface.”
