Ticket 14 – EIGRP Passive Interface

April 23rd, 2018 in TSHOOT v2 Go to comments

the neighborship between R4 and DSW1 wasn’t establised. Client 1 can’t ping R4
Configuration on R4:
router eigrp 10
  passive-interface default
  redistribute ospf 1 route-map OSPF->EIGRP
  default-metric 10000 100 255 1 10000
  no auto-summary

Answer 1) R4
Answer 2) IPv4 EIGRP Routing
Answer 3)  enter no passive interface for interfaces connected to DSW1 under EIGRP process (or in Interface f0/1 and f0/0, something like this)

Note: There is a loopback interface on this device which has an IP address of so we have to include the “network” command.


* Just for your information, in fact Clients 1 & 2 in this ticket CANNOT receive IP addresses from DHCP Server because DSW1 cannot reach (an loopback interface on R4) because of the “passive-interface default” command. But in the exam you will see that Clients 1 & 2 can still get their IP addresses! It is a bug in the exam.

    For this scenario, there was no solution called delete passive interface default. instead of that they had given enter no passive interface for interfaces connected to DSW1 under EIGRP process in R4. Answer perfect. cleared TSHOOT with 1000/1000

    I have yes a question, on asw1 port security we must remove the mac address 0000.0000.0001 on port fa1/0/1
    must we also remove mac address 0000.0000.0002 on fa1/0/2 interface on asw1?

    The passive interface will prevent R4 from forming EIGRP neighborship with DSW1 and DSW2. That means the client won’t be able to DHCP an IP address doesn’t it?

    Hi All, Just someone to clear something for me. How will I know if a specific question is related to ASW1, DSW1, R4, R2 or even R1? Or how will I know its Allowed Vlan ticket, Port Security ticket, NAT ACL tickets e.t.c. Thank you all.

    PASSED today 29/11/2013 A BIG thank you to networktut.com and TSHOOT Strategy by Khattak Document.
    My approach to the exam:
    1. Commands I used for All tickets “Ipconfig”, “Ping” and “show run”
    2. First 15min of the exam “tutorial time” I wrote down all 13Tickets in a list format.
    3. I did IPCONFIG on “Client 1” to confirm if I have 169.x.x.x or 10.x.x.x IP for those tickets
    4. Once divided into two group “169.x and 10.x” I concentrated on the 169.x.x tickets first to identify the issues there “refer to this website”
    5. Then followed by IPv6 and HSRP tickets which are very easy to pick up from the “question line” OR you can actually mark this two tickets down before even doing the IPCONFIG to have 11Tickets to work from.
    6. Name all possible issues relating to each group “169.x and 10.x”
    7. When working with 10.x.x.x “Group” have in mind to PING and PING
    8. Divide another group of tickets which you can Ping both and
    9. Divide another 1 tickets which you can Ping BUT NOT Ping
    10. My over message to everyone “group your tickets and you exam will be easy, easy, easy” keep in mind “Ipconfig”, “Ping” and “show run” that’s all you need, know what you’re looking for in a tickets when its VLAN Filter, Port Security, Switchport Trunk e.t.c
    All the best to everyone and another thing just forget about “IP Helper Address ticket” and “EIGRP Wrong AS No ticket” concentrate only on the 13Tickets.

    This was on my exam today and passed the exam today with 1000 marks. Thanks to networktut.com! Good luck to everyone. Now, I have to go back and write the CCNA exam again to retain my CCNP certificate! Damn you Cisco!

    Brian, if you have passed the Tshoot exam, you don’t need to re-certify for CCNA.
    your CCNA and CCNP is valid for next 3 years.

    @all: We have just updated this ticket with the following information:

    “* Just for your information, in fact Clients 1 & 2 in this ticket CANNOT receive IP addresses from DHCP Server because DSW1 cannot reach (because of passive-interface default command). But in the exam you will see that Clients 1 & 2 can still get their IP addresses! It is a bug in the exam.”

    It said that Clients have not to get IP because. It dependes on what helper ip address is configured on VLAN10 interface of DSW.

    I pray you all pass your exams in JESUS name. All shall be well. Remember enter ipconfig at client 1 and also to ping all the IP’s from there. Also dont forget to use show run on the necessary routers and switches. Above, know what you are doing very well. You will make it

    I have passed today TSHOOT 1000/1000. I am now CCNP certified
    I have studied following materials, gns3talk, khattak strategy, bull’s eye strategy and CBT nuggets and network Tut :)
    there was qtn on eigrp passive interface where i got confused for sometime but finally got right answer ;)
    All the qtns are still valid..best of luck to all (Y)

    I already passed TSHOOT paper 1000/1000 yesterday. All TT in this website still valid. EIGRP passive interface a bit confusing for me. But after i run show ip eigrp traffic, then i was confirm the TT is about passive interface.

    Guys I found on the Internet a list of questions on the exam that is different from what is written on the site who have seen such questions ?

    1 – R1 and R2 are not able to ping each other
    2 – Restore management access via telnet between R1 and R2
    3 – Restore OSPF adjacencies between R3 and R4
    4 – The problem state that DSW1 and DSW2 are configured as HSRP routes and DSW1 should be active router but instead, currently DSW2 is active.
    5 – Resolve the issues preventing management of R3 via HTTPS. Access credentials should be cisco/cisco and should be stored locally in R3
    6 – The problem state that R4 and DSW1 can’t ping to R2′s loopback IPV6 address (FEC0::2:2) or (Serial1/0.12′s 2026::12:2).
    7 – Client 1 is not receiving an IP address from DHCP server (R4)
    8 – Client 1 can not reach R1 S0/0.12 interface
    9 – Client 2 is not able to reach Web_Server at
    10 – DSW2 is not able to NTP authenticate against DSW1 who is NTP master

    Hi just wanted to know if the exam tickes appear in any order, and the question is the same for all tickets??, since apparently with every answer you put change the options in the following question

    I have downloaded the IPv4 layer 3 technology from this link http://dl.dropbox.com/u/2749921/GNS_Tshoot.tar.gz but it has only client1 and that is a switch so how would i know what IP address it has and how would i add another client2 to it to ping it from client1. Do i need to add workstations manually ? Thanks in advance guys…

    @Anonymouse, take console to client 1 and type ip interface brief and it will show you the ip address client has obtained from dhcp server. thanks

    Hey guys cleared tshoot exam today 5/24/2014 **All tickets still valid** There are strategies out there, this what I used.

    1- Find 4 tickets for R1. ***OBS*** number in parentheses represent ticket’s order on Networktut.com
    -> If can ping the tickets will be:
    – Nat ACL(4),BGP Neighbor (3) R1 ACL (5)
    -> if can’t ping but can ping ticket will be:
    – OSPF Authentication (1)

    2- find the 2 tickets for HSRP TRACK (2) DSW1 and IPV6 OSPF (12) R2

    3- find 4 tickets 3 for ASW1 and 1 for R4
    -> If client get ip 169.x.x.x or no IP address, tickets will be:
    -Switchport vlan 10 (8)
    -Port security (7) int 1/0/1 shutdown in **error disable** .
    -Switchport trunk (9) All in ASW1
    The other ticket will be in R4
    -DHCP Range (13)

    4- find one ticket where client get ip 10.x.x.x but can’t ping default gateway, ticket willl be:
    -Vlan filter (6) it will be DSW1 or ASW1 check for option port/acl

    5- 2 tickets where client get 10.x.x.x these two tickets will be:
    -OSPF to EIGRP (11) R4
    -EIGRP Passive Interface (14) R4

    I would advice to become premium member to interact with these tickets.

    Good lucky guys!!

    Thanks networktut, I passed exam today. and all questions here

    I want to clarify something here. I don’t believe that the passive-interface default command that is applied to R4 under the EIGRP 10 causes Client1 to not get an ip address. If you were to perform a sh cdp neighbor on R4, it can seen DWS1 & DWS2 as neighbors. It can also ping both. Moreover, DHCP utilizes ports 67 and 68 UDP, where 67 is the server and
    68 is the client.

    The passive-interface default command that is applied to R4 under the EIGRP 10 should only prevent the EIGRP agencies on the interfaces because the “Hellos” are being suppressed.

    My vote is that the EXAM is correct and the GNS lab has a bug.

    Other observations:
    1) if you perform an ip dhcp pool on R4, it tells you that 1 address is leased
    2) Khattak’s strategy ONLY works for this lab if and only if client1 receives a DHCP address.

    I took TShoot exams yesterday:

    Got 1000 scores
    Got 2 Multiple questions, with slightly changes in choices but answers posted here hold still.
    Got 1 drag and drop
    Got 13 TTs
    TTs here are all valid.

    Just study CCNP official cert guide to gain confidence and to back you up in case of trouble.

    Thanks to this site and to khatakk for strategy.
    I am now CCNP!

    Months of learning, and a job for cents (if so ever)
    It’s too big competition, and it’s not worth the effort.
    Better look for a regular job straight away : |

    All TTs are still VALID! every single one IPs and all
    I DID get the eigrp passive interface ticket!!
    No wrong AS ticket
    1 dd (#2) wording a lil different as stated but same answer
    3 multiple choice- wording for FCAPS question and answers are different. “What are 3 levels of the FCAPS model?” Answ: config, fault, security, accounting, backup I didn’t choose config as 1 of the 3 so I got it wrong
    I would HIGHLY suggest getting premium membership! It’s so worth it. All you need is networktut and khattak strategy to pass. Super big thanks to you both. I’m officially CCNP whoop whoooooop!!!!!
