Clients and Servers: What Does It All Mean? Although a number of the PC operating systems now available (such as Windows and the Apple OS) provide for peer-to-peer networking (discussed in the next chapter), in most cases one thinks of a network as being made up of clients and servers. A client is a computer that allows a user or users to log on to the network and take advantage of the resources available on the network. A client computer will run a client operating system (such as Windows XP Professional).
The network administrator controls both the access level of the users and the resources that they can access. This ability to control access is provided by the network operating system running on the server. Computers process data in parallel, whereas data is moved across the network in serial. The network interface card (NIC) is used to translate data from parallel to serial, and vice versa, and it provides the computer with a connection to the network media. Chapter 2. Different Needs, Different Networks In this chapter Understanding peer-to-peer networks Working with peer-to-peer network limitations Understanding server-based networks Deploying specialized network servers Understanding network topologies Assessing your networking needs In the previous chapter we took a look at the evolution of Microsoft Windows and also introduced other desktop operating systems such as Linux and the Macintosh OS.
Peer Products Come and Go Peer-to-peer networking has been around almost as long as the PC. On the IBM PC/clone side of personal computing, the DOS operating system did not provide for peer-to-peer networking. Add-on products were required to provide the functionality for sharing files or printers over a small network. Products such as Artisoft's LANtastic and Novell's NetWare Lite (Novell no longer markets NetWare Lite or a follow-up peer-to-peer product named Personal NetWare) provided workgroup networking in the late '80s and very early '90s.
