Networking:

Carefully choose the "most correct" answer, if there appears to be more than one !

* Local Area Networking (LAN)

  1. Is usually only for "PEER to PEER" Networking
  2. Can only be used within a single building or structure
  3. Can incorporate the resources of one computer system as logical assignments by another computer on the network
  4. Is limited to a specific number of computers on the Network

* A "Disk-Server"

  1. Can be used on "LAN" Networks as a shared logical disk
  2. Can only be used as a resource with "File-Server" Technology
  3. Has been replaced by "File-Server" Technology
  4. Both choices 1 & 3 are correct

* "Bridges"

  1. Refer to a device that interconnects two networks, that must be identical in all aspects
  2. Refer to a device that interconnects two networks, that can be different message formats
  3. Will ignore, and therefor will not pass messages that the wrong address
  4. Will alter the contents of the message of one network to suit the receiving network format

* "Routers"

  1. Will pass messages from one network to another, if it contains the correct address
  2. Will not filter out messages of one network from another, making both networks appear as one
  3. Are strictly for local, rather than remote, usage
  4. Are automatically selectable, without the need of any programming by the network manager

* "Gateways"

  1. Are rarely used these days, due to hardware cost tradeoffs with current software
  2. Cannot be used to connect IBM's or clones to Macinosh computers
  3. Are normally used to connect PC's to other dissimilar operating systems
  4. Do not accomplish any translation of the applicable system languages

* Token-Ring" Technology

  1. Is the most common network cabling system, requiring less cable
  2. Will "bring down" the entire system if a cable breaks
  3. Is the most flexible, but is more difficult to troubleshoot
  4. Requires a lot of cabling, but has less competition for access times

* "Star" Technology

  1. Is the most common network cabling system, requiring less cable
  2. Will "bring down" the entire system if a cable breaks
  3. Is the most flexible, but is more difficult to troubleshoot
  4. Requires a lot of cabling, but has less competition for access times

* "Bus" Technology

  1. Is the most common network cabling system, requiring less cable
  2. Will "bring down" the entire system if a cable breaks
  3. Is the most flexible, but is more difficult to troubleshoot
  4. Requires a lot of cabling, but has less competition for access times

* "Tree" Technology

  1. Is the most common network cabling system, requiring less cable
  2. Will "bring down" the entire system if a cable breaks
  3. Is the most flexible, but is more difficult to troubleshoot
  4. Requires a lot of cabling, but has less competition for access times

* "Daisy-Chain" Technology

  1. Is the most common network cabling system, requiring less cable
  2. Will split the entire system into pieces if a cable breaks
  3. Is the most flexible, but is more difficult to troubleshoot
  4. Requires a lot of cabling, but has less competition for access times
