Specs: N/A, N/A
Hi all,

One of the questions that was on my CCENT test recently was what command to use to check what is currently connected to your Cisco Router... the catch is you can't use any of the "show" commands. I still can't find the answer for this.. Can someone please advise and much thx!!

I think the answer might be...

arp -a

but that only shows you your ARP table (LAN Connections) and not the Routing Table (WAN Connections). Did they specify what layer of the OSI?

All I recall it asking was what command will provide what is connected to your router... I don't know if that meant interface or hardware... a trick question I would think.

That's messed up. Too open ended. Was it multiple choice? I would really like to know the answer too.

No!! It was on a simulation lab. So made it that much worse :)

Maybe:

systat all

from privileged mode.

Output below is from a Cisco 2950 switch, not a router. But I suspect the command would be the same regardless. It will show who's connected if that's what the question was looking for.
