Lesson 18. Viewing a Network Drive > Understanding the Network

Understanding the Network

You can use Windows NT Workstation with a number of network server systems, including Novell NetWare, systems that use TCP/IP, Windows NT Server, Microsoft LAN Manager, and IBM LAN Server. Most networks consist of servers and clients, although some networks consist solely of workstations (called "peer-to-peer" networks). Windows NT Workstation is a client that can attach and share data with various servers and with a peer-to-peer network. When you connect to a network, you gain certain advantages:

  • Access to shared resources, such as files and printers

  • Access to shared data, such as ClipBook pages

  • The capability to send and receive messages with others on the network using a mail program

  • The capability to back up your files to the server (see your system administrator for more information)
