Computer networking is a way of connecting several computers. It allows several computers to communicate with each other. There are two different ways in which this can happen. It can be set up to be a permanent arrangement that is fixed with cables or it can be done through a temporary situation such as that of modems. The second is the most popular type of networking with computers. This allows for many advantages and allows for the simple use of computers in the home or in business situations.
An Overview of Computer Networks
My second degree, or should I say my second go through inside the education system was in networking. I'm a certified Novell and Microsoft engineer, not that I'm all that excited about the fact. Networking is actually pretty mindless work once you learn it. It's pretty much do it by the numbers based on what the customer wants. After you hook everything up the software installation is pretty straight forward. My 16 year old daughter could do it or as GEICO would say, a caveman could do it.
Is your network security and user access in the right balance?
The whole meaning of networking is to share programs, but granting others to access a computer device reveals an open window for those with foul motives, too. In the early days networks were quite secure because they were closed in systems, and to do any harm you had to get physical access to a server wired to the LAN. Remote access and Internet possibility to hook up has changed that. Broader availableness and less cost of broadband (DSL and cable) connections means that even home computers remain linked up to the Internet round-the-clock, which add the chances for hackers to gain access to computers.
