CompTIA Network+ N10-006 Q61

A training class is being held in an auditorium. Hard-wired connections are required for all laptops that will be used. The network technician must add a switch to the room through which the laptops will connect for full network access. Which of the following must the technician configure on a switch port, for both switches, in order to create this setup?

A. DHCP
B. Split horizon
C. CIDR
D. TRUNK

Correct Answer: D
Section: Network operations

Explanation:
We should use trunk ports to set up a VLAN for the laptops that will be used in the auditorium.
A trunk port is a port that is assigned to carry traffic for all the VLANs that are accessible by a specific switch, a process known as trunking. Trunk ports mark frames with unique identifying tags – either 802.1Q tags or Interswitch Link (ISL) tags – as they move between switches. Therefore, every single frame can be directed to its designated VLAN.
