Free CompTIA Network+ N10-008 Practice Question

A company has recently implemented new firewall rules to enhance security. After the implementation, users have reported they are unable to access the company's internal file server, but they can access the internet without issues. Which of the following is the MOST likely reason the users cannot access the file server?

  • The firewall rules have been configured with an explicit deny for the file server.

  • The internal file server has been reclassified as external traffic by the firewall, causing the request to be routed incorrectly.

  • The firewall has an implicit deny rule at the end of the access control list (ACL) that is blocking unspecified traffic, likely including the file server.

  • Internet connectivity is prioritized over internal file server access due to a misconfiguration in the firewall rules.
