There is a recent trend towards rewarding academic achievement with cash.
We are joining the bandwagon by applying the same principle for CCNA

We are announcing a new contest, free to all on our MIMIC Virtual Lab Cloud:

All correct answers will be entered in a drawing for a grand prize valued
at $70 ($50 cash transfer + 1 week rental CCNA practice pod), and four other
prizes for free rental of our Cisco CCNA lab. No need to fill out any forms.

To enter:

- connect to your free demo pod at

and win the contest by answering this question:

Log on to router1, and verify that you can ping on switch1.

Using the "Connection" menu, disconnect the Ethernet link between router1
and switch1 (simulating a link failure).

Notice the console message.

Verify that you cannot ping any more.

What commands do you need to execute to re-route traffic to reach Your final command should be a successful ping.

Hint: you only need to execute commands on router1.



The contest is open until Friday February 18, 2011 at 12pm EDT.
Email your answer to us at .
At that time we will conduct a random drawing of the correct entries.
The grand prize is USD $50 cash transfer via Paypal or USD $50 gift card
