Cisco CCNA mock exam questions sample test – Question 316

.You are configuring a Cisco router.
Which command would you use to convey a message regarding the remote access security policy of your organization to a user logging into the router?

A. hostname
B. banner motd
C. description
D. boot system
E. terminal monitor

Correct Answer: B

The banner motd command is used to specify a message of the day (MOTD) banner to users logging into the router. This is a global configuration mode command and is generally
used to communicate routers identification information, display any warning specific to the router, or display a remote access security policy, such as “Unauthorized access to the
router is prohibited.” The syntax for this command is as follows:
banner motd [d message d]
d is the delimiter character. It can be any character of the administrator’s choice, with the limitation that the delimiter character cannot be used in the message text.
The hostname command is a global configuration command to assign the router a name for identification. The command syntax is hostname [name].
The description command is an interface configuration mode command that sets a description for that interface.
The boot system command is used to specify the path to the primary IOS file. It is a global configuration command.
The terminal monitor command is used to direct debug and system error message to the monitor when connected to a router using telnet. When you are connected to a router using
telnet and you issue the debug command, by default the output can only have been seen through a console session with that router. Executing the terminal monitor command directs
that output to the terminal session where it can be viewed.
