    Default What is RGP?

    I'm going through the Exam Cram 2 praticial questions when I stumbled onto this puzzling one:

    What is the following is connection-oriented?

    1) HTTP
    2) TCP
    3) RGP
    4) Circuit switching

    The test results have HTTP and RGP as the correct answers. I'm surprised that TCP is not one of the corrent answers. In more screwy the explaination has HTTP stated as a connectionless protocol.

    What is RGP anyway?
    Is HTTP connectionless or connection based?

    TCP is connection oriented and the only correct answer. Layer 4.

    Http is a layer 7 prot, it could care less about connections. It relies on TCP and UDP for data transfer

    RGP is an exterior routing protocol.

    Circuit switching, is well, circuit switching. Its a layer 2/3 attribute.


    I would look for a different test.

    Is RGP connection based?

    I'm starting to realize how sucky the Exam Cram 2 questions are.

    The marking system is too strict.

    If I do 85 questions, the passing rate is 86%.
    Where the passing rate of the actual Network+ exam is 61.5%

    what the heck is rgp ?
    http is connectionless ?
    it uses tcp for transport

    and tcp is connection-oriented

    bgp also uses tcp as a transport and thus is a connection-oriented
    routing protocol

    check the errata for this book on the exam cram website.

    All I could find about RGP and I doubt that what they meant unless Risk is up there with the best of the protocols

    I just checked the website. They explained the material on the CD is out of date and I just need to press the update button to get the new material, but I did that already and I still get debatable material.

    There's only one mistake listed in the Errata. There has to be more?!

    Blah, I'm never going to buy a Exam Cram 2 pratice book again!

    Here is what I found on RGP.

    Address Family Configuration Mode

    Prompt: (config-router-af)

    To enter address family configuration mode from router configuration mode, use the address-family command. Within this mode, you can configure address-family specific parameters for routing protocols, such as BGP, RGP , and static routing, that can accommodate multiple Layer 3 address families. The address family configuration mode commands include the neighbor-activate command and the neighbor as-override command. To exit address family configuration mode, use the exit-address-family command.

    For details, refer to the "Configuring Multiprotocol Label Switching " chapter of the Release 12.2 Cisco IOS Switching Services Configuration Guide.
