    q) Token ring networks are compatible with ethernet?:blink


    [HIDE]False - token ring is incompatible with ethernet, they use a ring topology, most often a star ring.[/HIDE]

    q) a peer-to-peer network enables only one pc to act as a server?:blink

    [HIDE]false - peer-to-peer enables all or any PC's on the network to act as a server and all pcs on the network can perform both server and client functions[/HIDE]

    q) to setup a network name on windows you must use WINS?

    [HIDE]True - wins allows network names like server1 to be correlated to IP address[/HIDE]

    q) NWLink is used to obtain MAC address?

    [HIDE]false it is implementation of IPX/SPX protocol, Which includes an element for resolving netbios names[/HIDE]

    Surely DNS could be used instead of WINS for q3? :biggrin

    False, False, False, False.

    (WINS isn't even required in an XP/2000/2003 network).

    WINS is only needed if any servers or PC's are NT.

    DNS takes care of 2000,2003,XP

    That's not what the question says!

    WINS Windows Internet Naming Service - enables windows network names, like DNS does except WINS refers to windows network names, not internet names.

    The Microsoft Windows Server 2003 family provides WINS, which enables the server computer to act as a NetBIOS name server and register and resolve names for WINS-enabled client computers on your network as described in the NetBIOS over TCP/IP standards.

    :cry:

    In my defence, I was taking 'network name' to mean any kind of network name: NetBIOS, DNS, or other...

    This answer is false.

    You can use LMHOSTS files on all the clients in a small network and that will do what a WINS server does without the need for a WINS server - ie the local LMHOSTS file will resolve NetBIOS names.

    What Microsoft say..

    So, assuming you didn't use Wins on a 2K/2K3 domain, finding computers/files/printers using a UNC would still function as if WINS were present? :blink

    Yes, and if they were on the same subnet, you could resolve those names by broadcasting.

    From my original link.

    If you remove the use of Netbios in the NIC then this will break the UNC path and also 'My Network Places' will no longer function.

    Yes My network places uses NetBIOS in fact although Microsoft are trying to get away from NetBIOS/WINS and move into a completely DNS oriantated plan, it's not going to happen anytime soon.

    This is why Microsoft recommends that resources are published in Active Directory, that way you can still find printers and shares etc without the need for UNC paths or Network Neighbourhood. Just search AD and they will be listed.

    How many people publish their shares in Active Direcory, not many I wager?

    Not me!

    Also I assume you would have publish 'hidden' shares if you wanted to access them as \\servername\hiddenshare$ at the run line would not work, could be wrong though! :biggrin

    Hmmm, hidden shares, good question. You wouldn't want to publish them as they are supposed to be hidden - I don't know the answer to that conundrum.
