For this question and though out this course I will be studying using the operating system Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium version 6.1.7600 Build 7600. Tests performed to determine my system type, processor speed, physical memory and free hard disk available is listed below. On my computer which I am running windows 7 I click the start button then type msinfo32 into the search box and press the return key. Please see screenshot below of my result of using msinfo32.
Please see table below of the results of my screen shot above. Table 1 Details of my computer
My computer name(system name)System typeProcessor speedPhysical Memory (RAM) JAMIE-PCX86-based PCAMD Turion(tm) 64 X2
To find out how much hard disk space there is left I click start and then click computer then click my c: drive with my right mouse button and click properties which shows a pie chart on how much disk space is used and how much is free to use. Please see screen shot below of my hard disk drive.
Please see table below of my hard disk details from my screen shot. Table 2 Hard disk details

A server in a network is a powerful computer and comprises of a server operating system for example windows 2008 server. They run specialized software to help maintain and control the server. Servers most of the time are dedicated to one role in a network but sometimes have more than one role. Some examples of jobs that servers do in a network are to run as a mail server which handles email functions, They also run as a printer server which manages all printers in a network, Also run as a file server which stores and dispenses files as and when a user requests them. These were just 3 examples of what servers do in a network there are loads of other jobs that server can do. Servers usually have a lot more hard disk space than host computers (users) because the server usually stores a lot of information that may need to be shared amongst users on the net work.
To convert the following binary IP address to the dotted decimal notation I use the table below to work out the decimal version of 11000000 10101000 00010100 11111110
So the IP address for the above binary numbers is 192.168.20.254
To convert the following binary IP address to the dotted decimal notation I use the table below to work out the decimal version of 00001010 01000000 00101000 00000000 1286432168421
So IP address of the above binary is 10.64.40.0
To convert the following binary IP address to the dotted decimal notation I use the table below to work out the decimal version of 10101100 00010000 01100011 00000001 1286432168421
So the IP address of the above binary is 172.16.99.1
I have worked out IP address mask 255.192.0.0 in binary by using the table below. 1286432168421
So IP address...
