Resolution: Copy Mgmtapi.dll from the TCP/IP Supplemental Course Materials CD-ROM (\winnt40.sp2\I386\Mgmtapi.dll) to your Windows NT System32 directory.

Page 359: Practice Answers For Page 67 Are Incorrect

On page 359, under the answers listed for page 67, answers "D" and "F" should be listed as invalid host IP addresses.

On page 359, change:
"d. 126.1.0.0
This is a valid address"

To:
"d. 126.1.0.0
This is an invalid address because it falls outside the valid host ID range."

Change:
"f. 190.7.2.0
This is a valid address"

To:
"f. 190.7.2.0
This is an invalid address because it falls outside the valid host ID range."

Page 66 lists valid host IDs.

Page 361: Mismatched Answers In Table

In the middle Practice Answers section on page 361, the answers for "Windows NT Workstation computers" and "UNIX workstations" are mismatched. The chart table appear as follows:

Type of TCP/IP host IP address range
Windows NT Server computers Assign high numbers to all servers, for instance 200-250.
Windows NT Workstation computers Assign numbers to the Windows NT Workstation computers using a different octet than that used by the servers and UNIX workstations.
UNIX workstations Assign low numbers to all UNIX workstations, for instance 150-200.


Page 365: Practice Answer Doesn't Match Original Question Asked

On page 365, the second paragraph should be changed to match the original question on page 89.

Change:
"Using the information below, convert your computer's IP address and the IP address of your default gateway to binary format, and..."

To:
"Using the information below, convert your computer's IP address and the IP address of your second computer to binary format, and..."

Page 367: Incorrect Explanation For Answer

Page 367, explanation for the first question on page 95:

Change:
"The only way to get a network ID of 254 is to use the entire octet, in this case the third octet."

To:
"The only way to get a host ID of 254 is to use the entire octet, in this case the third octet."
