    Maybe something to watch out for on the Switch exam.

    John

      Hi

       

      I have not taken the Switch exam so i am not breaking any rules here.

       

      I travel a lot and live in hotels so i don't really have a home and as such i don't have any access to hardware. To that end, tonight i bought the Boson simulator for the switch exam tonight.

       

      I came across the very first sim and i had to change the IP address of a computer but from the command line. I have worked with computers for about 18 years now and although i changed an IP via the command line in the early days i have not done it for many years since and i could not remember how to do it. This is simple but obviously if you get this in a sim in the exam then you can't finish the sim.

       

      I had to change the mask from 255.255.255.0 to 255.255.0.0  The command via the C:> on a computer is:

       

      ipconfig /ip address 172.16.1.2 255.255.0.0

       

      Hope it helps.

       

       

       

      Regards

      John
