A NGFW is continuously sending alerts regarding traffic from an internal database server. An old DHCP service, which was used before a dedicated server was installed, is still running on the server. Which of the following practices could have prevented this incident?
- Preventing UDP on the host firewall
- Enabling DHCP relay
- Disabling unused services
- Disabling DHCP spoofing
A user is connected to the guest wireless network for a video conference with colleagues. The user’s computer shows a strong wireless signal, and websites seem to load without issue, but the voice and video have periods of choppiness. Which of the following would BEST identify the issue?
- Verify the wireless capacity is not exceeded.
- Check the signal attenuation.
- Increase the power transmission level.
- Adjust the antenna placement.
An ISP technician frequently needs to administer a router remotely in the event of a configuration error or WAN outage. Which of the following technologies would facilitate the required connectivity?
- Remote access VPN
- Remote file access
- Secure Shell
Employees at a company report that they are unable to access the Internet.

Upon further inspection, the technician finds an employee has plugged a rogue wireless router into the corporate network. Which of the following settings would have prevented this situation?
- DHCP snooping
- DHCP relay
- DHCP leasing
- DHCP options
Which of the following protocols operates at the data link layer of the OSI model?

- MAC filtering
Which of the following describes the function of Layer 3 of the OSI model?
- It provides sequencing and acknowledgments for connection-oriented communication.
- It provides connectionless communication using logical addressing.
- It provides error detection through the FCS for frames transmitted.
- It provides encryption and compression for data received.
Which of the following ports should be open on a host-based firewall for a user who needs email and file-sharing capabilities? (Choose two.)
Which of the following steps follows an implemented solution?
- Document the findings and actions.
- Identify potential effects of the solution.

- Implement preventative measures.
A network technician receives an update in an RSS feed that a new exploit was released for specific hardware used on the network. After verifying the vulnerability with the vendor, the network technician discovers the vulnerability was patched almost two years ago. Which of the following techniques should be implemented to discover out-of-date firmware in the future?
- Application fuzzing
- Malware signature management
- Network traffic analysis with tcpdump
- Vulnerability scanning
