    Hi, i have passed, some Questions :

    two Questions about RD, easy (how works RD) and vpnv4 routes how are formed = ipv6+ 64 bits RD,

    .- what commands use the display LFIB on ios= sh mpls forwardin-table

    .- QinQ : switcport mode dot1q-tunnel and switcha access vlan (s-vlan)

    .- specifically what is the meaning of value 0 in the second colum ?
    I don´t remember the options for this question.
    Router-A#show mpls forwarding-table
    Local Outgoing Prefix Bytes tag Outgoing Next Hop
    tag tag or VC or Tunnel Id switched interface
    16 0 0 Tu156 point2point

    50 0[V] 0 Gi0/2
    51 0[V] 0 Gi0/2
    52 0[V] 0 Gi0/2

    My answer was the command : mpls ldp explicit-null

    .- CBWFQ, what does it use to classify traffic?

    Answer= class-map

    .- A company has 110 sites with ppp ,ethernet and frame relay lines. If they want to use VPLS what they should do?

    Anw: migrate ppp and frame-relay to ethernet (VPLS is LAN technology)

    .- Where implement GET VPN:

    =PEs routers

    .- QinQ the encapsulation port facing PE:

    =mode trunk

    .- Why does 6PE use 2 label stack:

    (same answer but with top label or botton label i chose due the botton label)
    Because the router which performs PHP in the core does not know IPv6 when he stripss of the BOTTOM MPLS label

    .- 3 D&D. easy: some described here

    .- comparing non-mpls vs tradicional overlay l2vpn (don have the answared)

    .- no labs

    Hi, 842

  27. jj
    November 3rd, 2017 at 15:08 | #27

    passed with 900
    tks for the comments in the last two pages.. they were spot on!
    a few other questions that came out:

    PE-CE BGP configuration. Why routes are not being received in CE and PE routers?
    router bgp 64500
    address-family vpnv4 unicast
    vrf Customer_A
    rd 64500:1
    address-family ipv4 unicast
    remote-as 64502
    update-source GigabitEthernet0/0/0/0
    address-family ipv4 unicast

    a) Policies must be applied bidirectionaly
    b) Vpnv4 AFI is not enabled under VRF
    c) Other options

    What best describes VPLS?
    a) Various encapsulations are available such as Ethernet and TDM
    b) Only ethernet encapsulation is available
    c) Service provider has costumers routing visibility
    d) Needs OSPF peering (WTF?)
    e) Can have OSPF peering

    VPLS control flag S bit equals 1. What does it mean?

    a) Sequenced frames
    b) Must use control word
    c) No need for sequenced frames
    d) other

    QinQ access. Pw configuration with MTU 1500 under neighbor. What MTU is needed in the core devices?
    a) 1508
    b) 1500
    c) 1518
    d) 1526

    What is the demarcation device between provider core and customer edge
    a) PE
    b) UPE
    c) NPE
    d) CE

    What acts as a gateway device between provider core and customer edge
    a) PE
    b) UPE
    c) NPE
    d) CE

    one other question about the correct basic VPWS configuration. Just remember that pseudowire class is configured as “pw-class” and not “pseudowire-class” (made that stupid mistake)
    pw-class abc
    encapsulation mpls

    best of luck for everyone else.

  29. jj
    November 8th, 2017 at 15:09 | #29

    I didn’t present my answers because I might be mistaken and don’t you to fail questions because of me.. please do reasearch for the correct answer and don’t take the following for granted:

    a) Policies must be applied bidirectionaly (by excluding every other options.. don’t know if by bidirectional they mean an “in” and “out” policies on the PE ou policies in PE and CE..

    don’t know the answer for this one.. only one seemed to be correct. the two options refering to OSPF completelly lost me there..

    a) Sequenced frames

    d) 1526 (the pw MTU configuration is only for signaling. you need to take into account all other headers)

    a) PE (I didn’t understand why the UPE and NPE where options.. there was no reference to h-vpls anywhere on the question

    a) PE (I didn’t understand why the UPE and NPE where options.. there was no reference to h-vpls anywhere on the question

    The last one you have to select the correct configuration.. It is a basic PW config in IOS-XR. My only doubt on the exam was the command used defining the PW class.

    Hello @Manos, I just took the exam and received a score of 83%. Used dumpsgator 642-889 exam answers dumps only. 90 percent of the questions were similar, the other 10% or so were not and contained some new questions. Even if you guess the 10 or so questions that weren’t on the file you can still pass. Highly recommended!
    you can download your 642-889 test dumps here: https://dumpsgator.com/download-642-889-braindumps-questions.html

    Obviously fake exam dumps, don’t buy dumpsgator stuff, from their page:

    ” The 642-889 dumps here are trustworthy and most up-to-date include verified CCNP Cisco Certified Network Professional (Routing & Switching) 642-889 exam questions dumps”

    when 642-889 isn’t an exam for CCNP R&S!

    Study from a study guide, and practice some labs on gns/eve/virl and actually learn things and be proud to pass.

    Going for it on monday!

    642-883 Exam Passing Update!!!

    Thanks @Confessor!!!

    But I found there were also some new questions that are not available in that MEGA files.

    I wrote the 642-883 exam last week, and I got 10-20 new questions that cannot be found from those MEGA files.

    I used the latest 2018 version PassLeader 642-883 dumps (192q Version):

    Karlo. How did you go?

    Can anyone answer if Inter-AS options A, B C and AB are in the exam?
    Can anyone answer if QoS related items are in the exam?

    I don’t see them referenced in the exam blueprint but can see some questions for out of all of the references I have looked at

  41. Karlo
    January 22nd, 2018 at 12:56 | #41


    i passed with 891/1000

    There was not question about Inter-AS options for me in the exam but people reported that there was the question about the command you need to put so bgp would accept updates and not filter it out if it doesn’t have that particular vrf configured and it’s not a RR.

    Answer for that is: IOS XR: retain router-target all, IOS XE: no bgp default route-filter

    As far as QoS, there was a question already mentioned here in comments about CBWFQ, anwser: class-map

    I’ve seen couple of questions repeated on the exam that are written in the last 2 pages of the comment section, other questions are relative easy if you studied from the student guide and did some labbing to get a hang for commands and their place in the cli.

    All in all, good exam, CCNP SP was a whirl, now a bit of relax than onto CCIE SP 🙂

    Best of luck to all.

    Sorry for the late reply.

    I took the exam and passed with 930. Very happy.

    There were no labs and I got 60 multiple choice questions.

    It was not as hard as I thought.

    My study technique was;
    -Print out the exam blueprints
    -Go through each item and research it by a combination of googling the topic (mostly coming across Cisco’s page showing configuration examples) as well as youtube for people explaining the concept and config
    -I also watched some of the INE CCIE SP videos
    -Doing lots of labs on my ESXI server with CSR1000v and XRv (I labbed MPLS L3VPN’s, GRE Tunnel, L2TPv3, AToM and VPLS (using P and PE routers of XE and XR)

    I also looked through this forum, mostly pages 4-6 and noting down the questions others remembered.

    Using this page as practice (which looks like the 126Q everyone refers to) https://www.briefmenow.org/cisco/which-type-of-vpn-requires-a-full-mesh-of-virtual-circuits-to-provide-optimal-site-to-site-connectivity-2/#

    This was my technique to sucessfully pass the exam!
