Chapter 6. Configuring Peer-to-Peer Networks

In this chapter

  • Choosing a LAN protocol for peer-to-peer networking

  • Configuring LAN protocols on peer computers

  • Sharing resources in a Windows workgroup

  • Linux and Windows Workgroups

  • Configuring Samba

  • Accessing shared resources

We’ve taken a look at networking hardware, different network architectures, network protocols, and also discussed the differences between peer-to-peer networking and server-based networking. Now we can concentrate on configuring a peer-to-peer network. Although peer-to-peer networks are the simplest type of LAN you can create, you still need to know how to configure network protocols and share resources such as printers and files.
