Which two statements about Fibre Channel over IP are true? (Choose two.)
Click on the arrows to vote for the correct answerA. B. C. D. E.
FCIP (Fibre Channel over IP) is a tunneling protocol used to transport Fibre Channel frames over IP networks. Here are the explanations for the two true statements:
A. FCIP links consist of a maximum of one TCP connection between two FCIP link endpoints.
This statement is true. Each FCIP link is established between two FCIP endpoints, which are typically Fibre Channel switches, and consists of a single TCP connection. This connection is used to transmit Fibre Channel frames encapsulated in IP packets between the two endpoints.
B. The FCIP profile contains information about the local IP address and TCP parameters.
This statement is also true. A FCIP profile is a configuration object that defines the parameters of an FCIP connection, including the local and remote IP addresses, the TCP port number, and various other parameters related to the quality of service (QoS) and security of the connection. The FCIP profile is used by the FCIP endpoint to establish and maintain the TCP connection with the remote endpoint, and to ensure that the encapsulated Fibre Channel frames are properly transmitted over the IP network.
The other answer choices are incorrect:
B. Each FCIP link carries encapsulated FCoE frames. This is not correct. FCoE (Fibre Channel over Ethernet) is another protocol used to transport Fibre Channel frames over Ethernet networks. FCoE frames are not encapsulated in FCIP frames.
C. The FCIP link is established between two peers, and the VE Port initialization behavior is identical to a normal E Port. This statement is incorrect. FCIP links are established between two FCIP endpoints, not between two peers. VE Ports and E Ports are related to the operation of Fibre Channel switches and are not relevant to FCIP.
E. The local IP address of the FCIP profile is the IP address of the management interface of the Cisco MDS switch. This statement is incorrect. The local IP address of the FCIP profile can be any valid IP address assigned to the FCIP endpoint, not necessarily the management interface of the switch.
