1. Which of the following distinguishes peer-to-peer networks from client/server networks? a. In peer-to-peer networks, no single computer has more authority than another, by default. 2. Which of the following is an advantage of using a peer-to-peer network over using a client/server network? c. A peer-to-peer network is easier to set up. 3. Which of the following is an advantage of using a client/server network over using a peer-to-peer network? b. A client/server network allows for easier expansion. 4. The first services widely used by networks were: d. File and print services 5. Suppose you wanted to share documents among several computers in your household in a peer-to-peer fashion. You could do that by properly configuring which of the following types of software? b. Desktop operating system software 6. What is the primary function of a file server on a network? d. It manages access and use of shared applications and data. 7. On most LANs, a computer acting as a server differs from a computer acting as a client in which of the following ways? (Choose two answers.) d. The server would run a different operating system than the client. e. The server would possess greater processing power than the client. 8. In which of the following environments would a MAN be most appropriate? a. A corporate headquarters connecting its five buildings across a small campus 9. Which of the following describes the combination of voice (such as telephone), video, and data signals sent over the same network? c. Convergence 10. What is the term used to describe a discrete unit of data that is sent from one node to another over the network? c. Packet 11. How can a server tell the difference between many clients on a network?
The physical layout of nodes on a network is known as the network’s: b. Which of the following is an example of a mail service? a. Security is a concern when using remote access servers on a network because: a. thereby exposing the network to the outside world. Load balancing 20. Each is identified by a unique network address. Topology 15. 19. students should demonstrate an understanding of the bus topology and peer-to-peer networking concepts. What organization sponsors the CCNA and CCIE certifications? c. 12. Distributing data transfer activity equally over several devices or components belongs to which category of network management services? a.Network+ Guide to Networks. Steps 7 – 9: Students should demonstrate how a star-bus topology network is created and begin to visualize how data travels over such a network. Which of the following network topologies is most common on today’s networks? b. Alerting the network administrator when a critical connectivity device fails 18. Exchanging messages between mail servers on different networks 16. Access servers enable computers to dial in to a network and obtain access to its resources. Network interface card 13. Cisco Hands-On Projects Project 1-1 Steps 1 – 2: After drawing a simple network diagram. Which of the following is one function of a network protocol? c. What device connects a client computer to a network’s medium. Star 17. Steps 3 – 4: Students should demonstrate an understanding of the star topology and the path data would follow in a peer-to-peer network using this topology. 5th Edition Solutions 1 – 2 c. They should also begin to visualize how data travels on a client/server network. To ensure that data arrives at its destination in the proper sequence 14. then demonstrate how a peer-to-peer network can be transformed into a client/server network. such as a wire? a. Steps 5 – 6: Students should become familiar with how nodes are added to a star topology network. Which of the following is an example of a network management service? b. .
the file sharing and access on each computer will need to be modified. This project also further familiarizes students who are new to networking with the popular hardware and software products they’ll encounter. that computer should be designated as the server. In addition. Project 1-3 Steps 1 – 5: Students will learn where to check LAN status and settings on a client running the Windows Vista operating system. and does not care much about security. If a client/server solution is suggested.Network+ Guide to Networks. Steps 6 – 11: Students will learn how to share a workstation’s folders over a network. does not have many users. and a useful task in other networking environments. they should conclude that a network based on a star or star-bus topology is simpler to expand than a bus topology network. a peer-to-peer network is an adequate option (though a client/server network would necessarily not be incorrect). Steps 6 – 15: Students learn how to enable and configure file sharing in the Windows Vista operating system Project 1-4 Results from the students’ job searches in this project will vary. students should get a sense of which networking skills and specialties are in demand. In order to make this solution work. Case Projects Case Project 1-1 Since Thrift Towne wants an inexpensive solution. Case Project 1-2 The type of network services that can help Scoops determine what type of traffic is crossing their network belong to the network management category of . each computer ought to be supplied with a Network Interface Card (NIC) and all necessary cabling. If a peer-to-peer solution is recommended. This is potentially all the extra software or hardware Thrift Towne would need to purchase in order to implement a peer-to-peer network. Step 11: Students should see that a simple bus topology network requires less cabling and connectivity hardware than the star or star-bus topology networks. modifying network connection and component configurations. Project 1-2 Steps 1 – 5: Students should become familiar with the steps they’ll commonly use to access networking parameters when adding new network components. 5th Edition Solutions 1 – 3 Step 10: Based on students’ experience in sketching some different network types. the computer with the most hard disk space should be designated as the central repository for data. and troubleshooting client network problems on a Windows XP workstation. However. a necessary task when setting up a peer-to-peer network. though none of the computers on a peer-to-peer network can be considered either a client or a server.
destination. and the type of customer support to expect. . when the heaviest amount of traffic occurs. it probably also requires file and print services. If it is. (For example. security services (because of sales and employee data). and might depend on the students’ perception of the ease with which Linux can be managed. After analyzing this data. students should be able to identify the similarities and differences in how the two operating systems handle file sharing. they can use the traffic volume information to determine whether they need to upgrade their network’s capacity. Given Scoops’ network configuration. but after researching the differences between Windows Server 2003 and Ubuntu Linux. and mail services. Case Project 1-3 Answers will vary. what software each supports for these services. 5th Edition Solutions 1 – 4 functions. the IT staff at Scoops can decide if all the traffic is legitimate and necessary. Scoops can find out the precise amount of traffic at any time.Network+ Guide to Networks. and each transmission’s source.) The decision to recommend the use of Linux is also subjective. communications services (for the dial-in capabilities) and Internet services. remote access. By using various network management tools. compared to Windows Server 2003. and protocol type. the ease of configuration.
