The diagram above shows 2 routers connected directly together via a cable. The network segment shared between the 2 routers is 172.20.100.96 /30.
Given a network diagram as shown above, sometimes a student may try to configure Router1's (or Router2's) interface with the IP Address 172.20.100.96. When used with the Subnet Mask 255.255.255.252 (/30), the address 172.20.100.96 is a network address.
A Cisco router will only allow a host address to be configured on a Layer 3 interface. (The only exception is a /31 Subnet Mask as covered in this course.)
What would the correct IP Addresses be for Router1 and Router2's interfaces?Show Answer=> 172.20.100.97 and 172.20.100.98
An attempt to configure Router1's interface gi0/1 with the IP Address 184.108.40.206, subnet mask 255.255.255.252 should be successful.Confirm this
