a. The functions provided by a network are usually referredto as network services. b. A(n) remoteserver may also be known as simply an access server. c. True or False:A client/server network is the simplest network model.
False. d. True or False:A common way to share resources on a client/server network is by modifying the file-sharing controls via thecomputer’s operating system. False.
e. True or False:The oldest and still most frequently used network communications services are print services. False. 2. Install Visio on your workstation.
Visio can be obtainedfrom DreamSpark®. Once Visio is installed, create a simple network diagram. Start the Visioapplication, select Network, then Basic Network Diagram.
Start by clicking the Computers andMonitors tab, then drag a few PCs to the diagram, one the upper right, the other the lowerright. Next click the Network and Peripherals tab, drag a switch to the middle of the diagram,drag a server to the upper left and a printer to the bottom left. Next, you need to connect thedevices. Click the Comm-link icon to connect the devices to the switch.
When complete, yourdiagram should look something like Unit1_Sample.vsd. On separateattachment (do not know how to combine). 3. Describe in your own words the similarities anddifferences between a peer-to-peer network and a client-server network. Peer-to-peernetwork and a client server network are similar because they can both reduce cost and make it a quick and convenient way to sharedata. What isdifferent between the two is a peer-to-peer network does not always centralize data and is not very secure.
There is not onecomputer that has power over another. A client-server network is centralized by a serverand all the computers connected to the server can take information held by that server. Thecomputers can have power over one another and therefore, is more secure. 4. Describe two hypothetical situations, one in which apeer-to-peer network would be most appropriate and one in which a client-server network wouldbe most appropriate, and explain why the particular network type would be most appropriatefor that case. Apeer-to-peer network would be very fitting for a small privately owned businesswhere there are only a few computers to share data between. No onecomputer would necessarily need higher power over another.
It is very inexpensive and muchquicker and more organized than filing manually. Aclient-server network would be more suited for a community college. Where allof the client computers have only student capabilities (unlesssigning on as an administrator).
All students and faculty will have a more effective way ofsharing data, while at the same time being more secure about it!
