Review Quiz

1:Name four file-sharing protocols supported by Mac OS X Server and their principal target clients.
2:How does Mac OS X Server support browsing for Windows clients?
3:What is the primary security concern with NFS?
4:What does FTP file conversion do?

Answers

A1: AFP for Macintosh clients; SMB for Windows clients; NFS for UNIX clients; and FTP for multiple, cross-platform client access
A2: On smaller networks, Mac OS X Server uses NetBIOS to advertise its presence. On larger networks, Mac OS X can be a WINS server, or it can use an existing WINS server. If there are no other servers on the network, Mac OS X Server can be a workgroup master browser or a domain master browser.
A3: NFS has no user-authentication process: NFS trusts that the client is who it claims to be. Beyond a security concern, this can also be a management issue if the client and server aren't working with a unified user list.
A4: FTP file conversion is a feature of the FTP server that automatically encodes a file or folder requested by an FTP client. The client appends .tar, .bin, or .gz to the end of the filename, and the server does the appropriate encoding.
