Summary

This chapter has examined basic SOHO LAN applications. It illustrated how to determine if a PC LAN was set up for disk sharing, folder sharing, file sharing, and printer sharing. We then looked at the popular application of sharing high-speed Internet connections. These applications comprise the most common applications for home office LANs.

The chapter then moved to more common small-office LAN applications that included Web serving supporting enterprise intranets, Voice over IP (VoIP) telephony that combines both the small-office LAN and telephony so all communications run across a single wiring plant, and telecommuting applications where Virtual Private Networking (VPN) and Remote Access Service (RAS) software connect telecommuters seamlessly to enterprise networks.
