Read the three scenarios below and answer the questions that follow each scenario.

The files need to be accessed by all 10 users, and each user must have different security rights. What kind of network would you install?

The server would have to be able to handle logon/authentication (domain controller). Most likely a Windows Server that has an Active Directory. I also will need a file server which is a computer responsible for the central storage and management of data files so that other computers on the same network can access the files.

The peer to peer network is unique because it has no central hub for any of the computers that is on the network. The computers are connected to each other and each computer hold a piece of the network capability, each computer handles part of the processing power, the memory requirements, and the communication processes. The components in this network are computers that are connected to each other and the cables that they are connected to. This type of network does not allow many additions to the network...
