This paper will attempt to compare and contrast the difference between two types of networks; peer-to-peer (P2P) and client/server networks. It will point out several advantages/disadvantages to both models. In general, P2P architecture allows resource to be shared between two or more computers (normally not more than 10) on a network. The low cost and easy setup makes P2P ideal for home and small business type networking. In a P2P network design all computers on the network are considered equal and have the same capabilities to share its resources. Whereas, with client/server architecture resource sharing will be controlled by a dedicated server that will be maintained by network administrators granting permission to clients sharing resources.

Use as many key words as possible in your abstract.
-peer (p2p) networking allows resources to be shared between computers on a network. The low-cost and easy setup makes them ideal for a small network. (Bird and Harwood) In a p2p network all the computers considered equal, they all have the same capabilities to use the network resources Limit its length to 960 characters. For an empirical study, use 100 to 120 words to describe the problem, participants, method, findings, and conclusions. For a theoretical or review article, use 75 to 100 words to state the article's topic, thesis, scope, sources, and conclusions. Define all abbreviations and unique terms. Spell out names of tests and drugs; use generic drug names. Use paraphrases, not quotations. Conserve space by using abbreviations; express numbers as digits.
