Review Questions

Use the questions here to review what you learned in this chapter. The correct answers are found in Appendix A, “Answers to Chapter Review Questions.”

  1. True or False: It is important to have the same native VLAN on both switch link partners for ISL trunking.
  2. True or False: The Cisco Catalyst 6500 supports up to 1024 VLANs in the most recent software releases.
  3. True or False: When removing the native VLAN from a trunk port, CDP, PAgP, and DTP, use the lowest-numbered VLAN to send traffic.
  4. True or False: In VTP client mode, switches can add and delete VLANs.
