  4. Compare and contrast VLANs, and SUBNETS

  9. I have a RAID 6, with 7 400gig drives, what is my overhead?
    800GIGs, (2 Drives)
  10. What is collision domain
    Where packets going down the same route can collide, because there is nothing controlling the flow of data.
  11. What is the very simple method of countering a DDOS attack?  Are there any addition side affects of implementing this method?

    • If there is a legit IP that is within the null range, it will all be sent to the invalid destination.
  12. Fill in the empty spaces of the process:
    A) Host checks to so if the the destination IP address is on the same network
    D) Host sends the packet to the resolved destinations MAC address
    • B) selects the gateway
    • C) ARPS for the destinations MAC address
  13. How is a MAC address used in regards of identification?
    • First 24bits = Manufacture number
    • Last 24bits = Unique NIC number
  14. What is the fault tolerance of a RAID 10?
    Best case is 50%, worst case is 1 disk
  15. What command line tool might I use to change IP addresses, add routes, and view specific network adapter configuration information?
  16. What command line tool might I use to view all the current connections on the NIC?
