LAN Operating Systems Scenarios
Read the three scenarios below and answer the questions that follow each scenario.
1. You are the network administrator for a new company that has 10 users and that plans to add 5 more users within a year. The files need to be accessed by all 10 users, and each user must have different security rights.

I would also suggest printer sharing, which will allow the company to dictate who has access to the printer. I would also utilize TCP/IP Protocols; which are the rules that allow computers to connect to one another and that enable computers and peripheral devices to exchange information. 2.

In this type of network there is no dedicated server, each workstation acts as a server and they share the responsibilities that a single dedicated server would. Each workstation is allowed to access all information allowed by the owners of each workstation. Each...
