Question 1


Check the configuration of R1 with the “show running-config” command:


R1 connects to R5 via E0/1 interface but R1 is tracking E0/0 which connects to R2 -> when the link between R1 & R5 fails the HSRP priority of R1 is still the same. To correct this problem we have to change the tracking interface to E0/1.

Question 2


Check the link between R1 & R2 where HSRP group 2 is running (interface E1/0)


As we see R1 is using access-list 102 to filter traffic coming to interface E1/0 (inbound direction). Continue checking the access-list 102 of R1:


R1 is blocking any traffic send to Notice that in the syntax of an access-list, the source address is always defined before the destination address. “” is the muticast address which HSRP version 2 uses to send Hello packets to (instead of of HSRP version 1). Therefore all HSRP sent from neighbor (R2 in this case) to R1 is dropped. R1 keeps sending HSRP Hello packets and think it is the active HSRP router.

Question 3


Checking what is preventing the two networks & from learning on R4.


There is a distribute-list applied on R4. Notice that a distribute-list is often used to control which routing updates should be sent or received on a router. So we should check what this distribute-list is used for. This distribute-list is based on access-list 1 so we will continue checking this access-list:


This access-list explicitly blocks the two networks & from populating into R4 routing table.

Question 4


Check the routing table of R4 with the “show ip route” command:


We see that there is no route is learned from R4.

Check R4 and R5 with the “show ip interface brief” command, we notice that the interface E0/0 of R4 (which is connected to R5) and interface E0/0 of R5 (which is connected to R4) are running DHCP but it does not have any IP address.


-> Therefore this is the issue.

    @Anaonymous: In this case the distribute list uses the ACL so D is the correct answer.

    ACL is not blocking any traffic on the interface connected to R2 hence E cannot be the answer. As per the given simulation, D is the Answer.

    Hi, sorry for my question. Where are que questions for the answers/explanation

  4. Hello
    November 7th, 2018

    Q3 – The routing table of R4 shows no entries for and The answer on this page is D. The distribute-list configured on R4 is blocking route entries. However, the Simlet notes the right answer as being “The ACL configuration on R4 is blocking inbound traffic on the interface connected to R2. I understand that the ACL is the actual mechanism that will do the blocking, but it won’t do anything unless the distribute-list activates it. Which is the correct answer for the test?

  5. Hello
    November 7th, 2018

    networktut – your response to Anaonymous is that the correct answer is D, distribute list is the right answer, but the networktut simlet notes it is the ACL that is the correct answer. Can you please clarify which is actually the correct answer for the test (if known), and make a correction to either the answer on the question (D or E) and the simlet.

  6. Hello
    November 7th, 2018

    networktut – I will say that PassLeader says the correct answer is the distribute-list configured on R4 is blocking the router entries.

    @Hello: In both simlet and answer on this page the answer is always distribute list. Please check again.

    I am premium member, In your explanations above here, qx3 answer is D and qx4 ans is C, but in your simlet, these answers are opposite. plz clearify

    @networkTUT : in HSRP sim; Do I have to apply any command or it’s only multiple choices ?

    @ Sam,

    through using show commands you should determine the root cause. then you will answer to the question using multi chose

    On question 4 in the HSRP_Simulator I run the command show interface eth0/0 and it showed the IP address for the interface (I thought it was learned via DHCP)

    R4#show interface eth0/0
    Internet address is

    R5#show interface eth0/0
    Internet address is

    But the ping failed. I was confused because every answers seemed wrong. Now I will trust on show ip interaface brief

    I saw the same thing as Curious. Why does “show int eth0/0” show an IP address if DHCP isn’t working?

    I read these two simlets are out of the exam. Is that true?
    What is currently the surrogat?!

    Hello Guys,
    Please can someone guide how to start preparing for this Tshoot exam. I have recently passed Switch and Tshoot is my final exam

    Has the HSRP Simlet been removed from the exam now? The PDF says

    ‘Note: HSRP Simlets does not appear in the exam any more’

    but there are people here as recently as the 26th of April saying it was in there?

    Just starting to prepare for this, last one to do, 4 months to do it…

    Re question 3

    If you look at where the acl is applied – it’s in OSPF – so it’s blocking the entries from the routing table – not packets from entering the router.

    Passed on May 10th 2019 with 946/1000.
    24 questions on exam: 10 MCQs, 12 tickets, BGP and HSRP simlet.
    Thanks mm for detailed review and you guys here as well as Networktut team.
    Chinese dump is valid however MCQs answers in it are not totally correct.
    You should read all recent comments here to get your own correct answers.
    Good luck!
