5. How do you determine if there is latency in your connection?

6. How do you do a trace route? What is the importance of it?
Ans. Trace route is to find the path taken by a single packet in any network, by traceroute we candetemine the time, speed latency period of a network
7. What is Active X?
Ans. ActiveX is a set of technologies from Microsoft that enables interactive content for theWorld Wide Web. Before ActiveX, Web content was static, 2-dimensional text andgraphics. With ActiveX, Web sites come alive using multimedia effects, interactiveobjects, and sophisticated applications that create a user experience comparable to thatof high-quality CD-ROM titles. ActiveX provides the glue that ties together a wideassortment of technology building blocks to enable these "active" Web sites.
8. What is DNS?
Ans. Domain Name Server, it converts the user friendly name into the coresponding ip-address
9. What is the importance of a DHCP Server?
Ans. Dynamic host configuartion protocolDynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is a network protocol that enables a DHCPserver to automatically assign an IP addressto an individual computer'sTCP/IP stack software. DHCP assigns a number dynamically from a defined range of numbers (i.e., ascope) configured for a given network.Client computers configured to use DHCP for IP assignment do not need to have astatically assigned IP address. In addition, they generally do not need to have addressesconfigured for  DNSservers or  WINSservers, as these are also set by the DHCP server. DHCP assigns a TCP/IP address when a system is started.The client computer sends a broadcast request (called a DISCOVER or DHCPDISCOVER), looking for a DHCP server to answer.The router directs the DISCOVER packet to the correct DHCP server.The server receives the DISCOVER packet. Based on availability and usage policies seton the server, the server determines an appropriate address (if any) to give to the client.The server then temporarily reserves that address for the client and sends back to theclient an OFFER (or DHCPOFFER) packet, with that address information. The server alsoconfigures the client's DNS servers, WINS servers, NTP servers, and sometimes other services as well.The client sends a REQUEST (or DHCPREQUEST) packet, letting the server know that itintends to use the address.The server sends an ACK (or DHCPACK) packet, confirming that the client has a beengiven a lease on the address for a server-specified period of time. When a computer uses a static IP address, it means that the computer is manually configured to use aspecific IP address. One problem with static assignment, which can result from user error or inattention to detail, occurs when two computers are configured with the sameIP address. This creates a conflict that results in loss of service. Using DHCP todynamically assign IP addresses minimizes these conflicts.
10. How do you find if a printer is a network or Standalone printer?

A command prompt window launches on the desktop.In this command window, type ipconfig /all. Details are shown for each of the computer'snetwork adapters. Computers installed with VPN software or emulation software willpossess one or more virtual adapters. The IP Address field states the current IP addressfor that network adapter. The Physical Address field states the MAC address for thatadapter.run>cmd(to open command prompt)in command prompt type "ipconfig"C:/windows/system32/ipconfig /all
