Flashcards in Network+ Chapter 1 Deck (30):

What are 9 common dedicated servers? Ch 1 -pg 6

File server,Mail Server, Print server, Web server, Fax server, Application server, Telephony server, Remote access server, Proxy server


What is the function of a File server? pg 6

Stores and dispenses files


What is the function of a Mail server? pg 6

The network’s post office; handles email functions


What is the function of a Web server? pg 6

Manages web-based activities by running Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) for storing web content and accessing web pages


What is the function of a Fax server? pg 6

The “memo maker” that sends and receives paperless faxes over the network


What is the function of a Application server? pg 6

Manages network applications


What is the function of a Telephony server? pg 6

Handles the call center and call routing and can be thought of as a sophisticated network answering machine


What is the function of a Remote access server? pg 6

Provides remote users with access to the network through modems and an IP connection


What is the function of a Proxy server? pg 6

Handles tasks in the place of other machines on the network


What is the function of a Print server? pg 6

Manages printers on the network


The term _______ is used to describe pretty much anything that takes an IP address. pg 7

for the Network+ exam, stick to the definition being networkdevices, including workstations and servers, with IP addresses.


is a mechanism in high-performance telecommunications networks that directs data from one network node to the next based on short path labels rather than long network addresses, avoiding complex look ups in a routing table. Ch 1 Pg 9

MultiProtocol Label Switching (MPLS)


The Internet is a prime example of what’s known as a? Ch 1 pg 9

Distributed WAN


Computers connected together in___________ do not have any central, or special, authority. Ch 1 pg 10

peer-to-peer networks/workgroups


This type pf network is pretty much the polar opposite of peer-to-peer networks because in them, a single server uses a network operating system for managing the whole
network. Ch 1 pg 11

Client-server networks


What are four advantages of a Client Server Network over a Peer to Peer Network? pg 11

Better Organized
Better Security


In A+ we discussed Bus,Star,Ring,Mesh and Hybrid Network Topologies. What are two more that we will discuss in Network+? Ch 1 pg 12



_________is the capability of a computer or a network
system to respond to a condition automatically, often resolving it, which reduces the impact on the system. CH 1 pg 13

fault tolerance


What are some of the benefits for a star topology? ch 1 pg 14

New stations can be added easily and quickly.
A single cable failure won’t bring down the entire network. It is relatively easy to troubleshoot.


The routers in this topology can either be linked by a serial cable, making it a physical network, or be far apart and connected only by a circuit within a Frame Relay or MPLS network, making it a logical network. ch 1 pg 16

point-to-point topology


What are some of the things you should thing about when selecting the right topology? Pg 19

Ask/Thing of the right questions
how much cash do you have?
how much fault tolerance do you really need?
is this network likely to grow like a weed over time?
how scalable does your network need to be?


What is the network backbone? pg 20

It’s what all the networks segments and servers connect to and what gives the network its structure.


True or False-A full mesh physical topology has the best chance of having a collision. pg 16



Out of the 7 Topologies which one is the most basic? pg 12



Although a bus topology is easy to install and not very expensive what are some disadvantages of the bus topology? pg 12

it’s hard to troubleshoot, change, or move, and it really doesn’t offer much in the way of fault tolerance because
everything is connected to that single cable.


Whats one of the best features of a Star Topology? pg 13

each computer or network segment is connected to the central device individually, if the cable fails, it brings down only that particular machine or network segment.
It is relatively easy to troubleshoot.


What are the disadvantages of a star topology? pg 14

The total installation cost can be higher because of the larger number of cables but prices are constantly becoming more competitive.
It has a single point of failure (the hub or other central device).


The internet is a prime example of this type of network? pg 9

distributed WAN


What are 4 advantages of a MultiProtocol Label Switching (MPLS)? ch 1 pg 9

Physical layout flexibility
Prioritizing of data
Redundancy in case of link failure
One-to-many connection


What is the big dog of all WANs? ch 1 pg7

the Internet—every day!
