3. Robert is the network administrator for a small office. His network has one Windows 2000 Server acting as domain controller, one Windows 2000 member server, and 12 Windows 2000 Professional workstations. Currently, the office has only one dial-up account to a local ISP for Internet access. Robert has decided to enable ICS on the member server where the dial-up account resides. After installing ICS, he discovers that the local IP address of the member server has changeWhy?

  1. The IP address of the member server has changed to reflect the shared connection to the ISP.

  2. The member server is using DHCP. After rebooting the server, it asked for a new IP address from the DHCP server.

  3. The member server's IP address is now assigned from the ISP.

  4. The member server's IP address has changed to 192.168.0.1 because of the installation of ICS.

4. Robert is the network administrator for a small office. His network has one Windows 2000 Server acting as domain controller, one Windows 2000 member server, and 12 Windows 2000 Professional workstations. Currently, the office has only one dial-up account to a local ISP for Internet access. Robert has decided to enable ICS on the member server where the dial-up account resides. After installing ICS, he discovers that the local IP address of the member server has changeHe concludes that the local IP address has changed to 192.168.0.1, but how will the other hosts in the network connect to this machine when the network addresses are not the same?

  1. This server will use AutoDHCP to issue addresses on the 192.168.0.0 network. The hosts need to be on this network to use the ICS connection.

  2. This server will use NAT to translate the local network addresses into the remote network.

  3. This server will need its IP address changed back to match the network address unless the network address is also using the 192.168.0.0 network.

  4. This server will use IAS for computer authentication. A named pipe will be created between the two hosts on port 80, 20, 21, and 25.

5. You are a consultant to a small advertising agency. Currently, it has one Windows 2000 Server acting as domain controller, one Windows 2000 member server, and five Windows 2000 Professional workstations. The agency hired you to configure ICS for an application on one of the Windows 2000 member servers that needs to dial into a client's site to retrieve information. However, after you install ICS and test the connection, the application fails. You determine that the application is using port 4788, which is not one of the preassigned ports ICS uses. How can you add the port to the ICS connection?

  1. Unfortunately, you cannot. ICS only allows predefined port numbers 21, 220, 143, 25, 110, 23, and 80.

  2. You have to create a PIF (program information file) for the application to tell ICS to open the port each time the application is launched.

  3. You can add a custom application through ICS Settings on the Application tab.

  4. You can add a custom application through ICS Settings on the Advanced tab.

7. Harriet is a Windows 2000 network administrator, and her network has three Windows 2000 Servers acting as domain controllers, two Windows 2000 member servers, and 765 Windows 2000 Professional workstations. Her company's Chief Financial Officer, Marge, has mandated that no additional purchases or expenses be approved for the next few months. Everyone needs to conserve resources and make do with what they currently have. The CFO did, however, approve the addition of a T1 line for Internet connectivity, but no additional firewall software or routers. Harriet decides to use NAT through one of her Windows 2000 member servers. She configures the DHCP properties to reflect the new connection. Marge wants to know why Harriet decided to use NAT, and whether it cost the company any additional monies. Of the following, which are the true attributes of NAT? (Choose all that apply.)

  1. NAT allows for IP address conservation.

  2. NAT provides outbound security because local traffic doesn't flow onto the Internet.

  3. NAT provides inbound security because the internal network uses private IP addresses.

  4. NAT provides its own internal DNS server.

9. Bob is the Windows 2000 network administrator for his company. His network has two Windows 2000 Servers acting as domain controllers, three Windows 2000 member servers, and 132 Windows 2000 Professional workstations. He has configured his network to use DHCP with the network id of 192.168.0.0. Bob is now configuring NAT for his network users, and is contemplating the Address Assignment tab. Should Bob check the Automatically assign IP addresses by using DHCP option for this NAT connection?

  1. No. DHCP is already assigning users IP addresses.

  2. No. DHCP must be stopped before the option can be started.

  3. Yes. This option allows NAT to rely on DHCP for clients IP addresses.

  4. Yes. This option must be checked if Bob is using Windows 2000's DHCP Services.

She has installed NAT on one of her Windows 2000 member servers, but is confused about which NIC to configure for the service. Which network card should be configured to allow access to the Internet, and why?

  1. The public interface should not be configured because it uses the public IP address of 192.168.0.1.

  2. The public interface should be configured because it is the NIC attached to the Internet.

  3. The private interface should be configured because it uses the private IP address of 10.10.10.x where x is the host ID.

  4. The private interface should not be configured because it matches the internal network settings the clients connect to.
