  • A question about the BSCI Lab Portfolio book.

    Hi all

    This is my first post, so first of all all me to say a big HELLOOO to you all, and to thank everyone here for providing such a useful site.

    Ok, here is the question that I have. I'm currently working out of the Cisco Press BSCI Lab Portfolio book, and am stuck on a question about timers in lab 2-6 'EIGRP Authentication and Timers'. Here is the text of the question:-

    "The hello interval determines how often outgoing EIGRP hellos are sent, while the hold-time monitors incoming hellos. You are more concerned with the hold time than the hello interval, because the hold time detects a dead neighbor. However, you also want the neighbors to send the same number of hellos as under normal circumnstances before declaring a neighbor dead.

    What is the hold time you will configure?

    What is the hello interval you intend to configure?"

    According to the book, the answer is a hello interval of 2, and a hold time of 8. I don't understand how this affects the relationship between neighbors. I don't even understand why I want to change defaults at all! Can anyone make sense of this question please? Your help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    Regards

    John

            Ahem, I was rushing and didn't read the question properly. All the info I needed was there.
