2. Install Visio on your workstation. Visio can be obtained
from DreamSpark®. Once Visio is

 

installed, create a simple network diagram. Start the Visio
application, select Network, then

 

Basic Network Diagram. Start by clicking the Computers and
Monitors tab, then drag a few PCs

 

to the diagram, one the upper right, the other the lower
right. 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 the
devices. Click the Comm-link icon to

 

connect the devices to the switch. When complete, your
diagram should look something like

 

Unit1_Sample.vsd.

 

            On separate
attachment (do not know how to combine).

 

3. Describe in your own words the similarities and
differences between a peer-to-peer network

 

and a client-server network.

 

            Peer-to-peer
network and a client server network are similar because they can both

 

reduce cost and make it a quick and convenient way to share
data.

 

            What is
different between the two is a peer-to-peer network does not always

 

centralize data and is not very secure. There is not one
computer that has power over

 

another. A client-server network is centralized by a server
and all the computers connected

 

to the server can take information held by that server. The
computers can have power over

 

one another and therefore, is more secure.

 

4. Describe two hypothetical situations, one in which a
peer-to-peer network would be most

 

appropriate and one in which a client-server network would
be most appropriate, and explain

 

why the particular network type would be most appropriate
for that case.

 

            A
peer-to-peer network would be very fitting for a small privately owned business
where

 

there are only a few computers to share data between. No one
computer would necessarily need

 

higher power over another. It is very inexpensive and much
quicker and more organized than

 

filing manually.

 

            A
client-server network would be more suited for a community college. Where all
of the

 

client computers have only student capabilities (unless
signing on as an administrator). All

 

students and faculty will have a more effective way of
sharing data, while at the same time being

 

more secure about it!
