Objective : Implementing, Managing, and Maintaining IP Addressing
SubObjective : Configure TCP/IP addressing on a server computer

Item Number: 70-291.1.1.5
Single Answer Multiple Choice

 

You are the network administrator for a Windows Server 2003 network. Your network contains three Windows Server 2003 computers and 200 Windows XP Professional computers. Some employees work from home using Windows XP Professional computers. Most of these employees connect to the corporate network during the day and to a home network at night.

 

The home workers must have their IP configuration assigned using the corporate DHCP server when connected to the corporate network. However, these same users need static configurations when working at their home networks.
What should you do?

 

A. Configure static IP information for each of the home computers.
B. Configure DHCP address reservations for each of the home computers.
C. Configure the Alternate Configuration option on each of the home computers.
D. Configure Automatic Private IP Addressing (APIPA) on each of the home computers.

 

Answer:
C. Configure the Alternate Configuration option on each of the home computers.

 

Tutorial:
You should configure the Alternate Configuration option on each of the home computers. This option allows a computer to use an alternate static IP address in the absence of a DHCP server. Without an alternate configuration, the computer automatically uses APIPA.

 

You should not configure static IP information for each of the home computers. The scenario specifically stated that you wanted the home computers to use DHCP when connected to the corporate network.

 

You should not configure DHCP address reservations for each of the home computers. This option only ensures that the home computers will receive the same IP address each time they connect. It does not affect when the computers are not connected to the corporate network.

 

You should not configure Automatic Private IP Addressing (APIPA) on each of the home computers. The scenario specifically stated that the home computers need static configurations when working at their home networks. APIPA is used when computers are configured to use dynamic IP addresses but no DHCP server is found. Addresses are automatically assigned from the 169.254.0.0/24 address range.
