What is a characteristic of an IPv4 loopback interface on a Cisco IOS router?
- The no shutdown command is required to place this interface in an UP state.
- It is a logical interface internal to the router.
- Only one loopback interface can be enabled on a router.
- It is assigned to a physical port and can be connected to other devices.
Answers Explanation & Hints:
The loopback interface is a logical interface internal to the router and is automatically placed in an UP state, as long as the router is functioning. It is not assigned to a physical port and can therefore never be connected to any other device. Multiple loopback interfaces can be enabled on a router.
