Workbook mistake (?) in RIP

Hi guys,

Anyone can help to confirm this for me:


1. RIPv2 Filtering with Prefix Lists:


  • Using a prefix-list, configure R5 to filter any IPv4 updates received inbound from R4 over the DMVPN cloud.
  • Solution : ip prefix-list NOT_FROM_R4 seq 5 deny
  • R4 IPv4 address is /24. Will the prefix list match this? I was under the assumption in prefix list means exact match and subnet mask has to be Thus, it will not match /24?
        From Brian's blog:

        “ip prefix-list LIST permit″ would be an exact match for the prefix with a subnet mask of This does not match, nor does it match, nor anything in between.

2. RIPv2 Filtering with Extended ACL:

  • Configure an extended access-list filter on R5 so that routes for VLAN 7 and VLAN 9 are accepted only from R1:
    • additionally, routes to R1’s Loopback0 and VLAN 146 are accepted only from R3.
  • Solution :
    • access-list 100 deny ip host host
    • access-list 100 deny ip host host
  • Shouldn't it be and ?




  • Hey MartinL,

    Yeah I noticed that was a "gateway" command.


    From Cisco:

    gateway prefix-list-name:

    (Optional) Name of the prefix list to be applied to the gateway of the prefix being updated.


    So I was under the assumption it is subjected to general prefix list rule means, it will ONLY match However it's coming from Does this matter?

  • I see. So it's smart enough to know with keyword "gateway" it'll ignore the "normal" prefix-list rule.



    How about #2.. Any idea on it?

    Also, in regards with prefix list, is it possible to match exactly an IP address? I'm asking for prefixes though not with gateway keyword.



  • I think I am getting confused.  

    Because what I have in my head is:


    If I have an interface of, let's say, Gigabit1.146 with IP address of, and I want to match it exactly, I always think I can't use 

    ip prefix-list seq 10 permit because it's subnet mask is not /32. 


    Apologies if I'm making things complicated.

  • Thanks mate. 

    Good to have my confusion cleared. 


  • Yeah, I saw several other examples on other sites. So it's not a typo then. 

    I was wondering, if I use would they dock my points? I guess I'll worry about it closer to the exam day
