Network Concepts

A revolution is going on now, and it compares to the one Johannes Gutenberg started in 1456 when he pioneered the use of movable type. The ability to print in quantity made it possible for the first time for the common man to gain knowledge by himself. This new revolution is based on global connectivity, and its impact is on our ability to disseminate information by ourselves. We now take it for granted that we can share information, preach, publish, talk, and touch the rest of the world through our computers. Networks have radically changed the way the world communicates.

Networks aren't limited to just the work environment anymore. Most homes with a computer quickly end up with two or more, and it's not long before it seems sensible to tie them together with a network. So, whether you have one now, a network is probably in your future. In this chapter, you'll learn how networking works and how Windows 2000 provides the tools to help you become part of the connected world.
