SubObjective : Configure and troubleshoot the TCP/IP protocol.
Multiple Answer Multiple Choice
You are the desktop administrator for your company. The company policy for dial-up networking requires that all passwords and all data transmitted be encrypted. In addition, connections must be terminated when attempting to connect to systems that will not accept encrypted authentication.
You must configure dial-up networking connections on your Windows XP Professional mobile computer.
What should you do? (Choose two. Each correct answer represents part of the solution.)
- Enable the option Require secured password.
- Enable the Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP).
- Enable the option Require data encryption (disconnect if none).
- In the Advanced Security Settings dialog box, clear all options other than MS-CHAP v2.
A. Enable the option Require secured password.
C. Enable the option Require data encryption (disconnect if none).
You should enable the option Require secured password. You should also enable the option Require data encryption (disconnect if none). This configures the system to require data encryption. If this option is enabled, and the connecting server does not use data encryption, the connection is terminated. If this option is disabled, encryption is attempted, but the connection is successful even when data encryption is not used. If Require data encryption (disconnect if none) is not enabled, encryption is optional.
You should not enable the Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP). This is used for smart cards and other intermediary security devices. No information in the scenario was given to indicate such a requirement.
You should not clear all options in the Advanced Security Settings dialog box other than MS-CHAP v2. This would restrict the client to using only this protocol and prevent it from using MS-CHAP v1, If you have configured a Windows XP dial-up client to require a secure password and encryption when connecting, it can use only the MS-CHAP v1 or v2 protocol.
