    1)CD-ROM drive is using a protected mode driver
    2)CD-ROM drive is using a real mode driver
    3)Win98 does not support this brand of CD-ROM drive
    4)The boot sector has been corrupted by a virus

    2)Server type is PPP & I have SLIP account
    3)DNS servers at my ISP are unavailable
    4)32-bit Windows socket interface Winsock.dll is missing?

    Q)I want to verify mappings on my Win98 pc between IP addresses and MAC addresses on an ethernet network, what should I use?

    1)ARP utility 2)Winipcfg utility 3)PING utility 4)Tracert utility

    Q)Which of the following commands allow me to check the IP address assigned to my Win98 PC, I dont know the host name of PC and need to use the least effort? 2 choices

    1.) Cos they are all mad answers, so I'll shoot with this



    Q)What does MS-DOS use to provide devices with direct access to memory and I/O devices?

    1)real mode driver 2)protected mode driver 3)a .dll file 4)an .OCX file

    I'll go with that.

    4)32-bit Windows socket interface Winsock.dll is missing?

    3)DNS servers at my ISP are unavailable. Deffo - if you can ping by raw IP, but not name, your DNS is goosed.


    Q)I want to verify mappings on my Win98 pc between IP addresses and MAC addresses on an ethernet network, what should I use?

    1)ARP utility 2)Winipcfg utility 3)PING utility 4)Tracert utility

    ARP or winipcfg ...I say winipcfg cos I forget what ARP is about.

    1)Ping 2)netstat 3)Ipconfig 4)ARP 5)winipcfg

    winipcfg in 98, ipconfig on all later windows OS's to date and netstat

    I would also say winipcfg. ARP is Address Resolution Protocol, (layer 2 of the OSI model) which Maps Harware Addresses to IP (layer 3) addresses.

    E.g, a router recieves a packet destined for 192.168.1.1, but doesn't know the MAC Address. An ARP request is broadcast to all node's on that segment and the node with the address 192.168.1.1 replies and sends it's MAC address to the router, which then forwards the packets.

    There is also RARP, or Reverse Address Resolution Protocol, which maps IP addresses to Harware addresses. Exactly the reverse of ARP. :)

    winipcfg would display the MAC and IP address of the machine


    I believ this is right, but then again I'm on my 5th beer and it's tastin better with every one. :D :morebeer

    um unless im reading the question wrong its ARP

    it doesnt ask to know what the local ethernet interface is configured as, it wants mappings of ip -> MAC

    thats clearly arp

    arp -a should do the trick

    I knew I was in a slightly grey area there chaps - thanks for clearing that up.


    But still, another example of a dubious question....
