Understanding FTP Services

  • FTP is used to transfer files from a server to a client (download) and transfer files from a client to a server (upload)

  • FTP client is the browser

    • Also command-line and GUI clients

  • FTP servers can operate as anonymous servers or they can require a valid logon

    • FTP servers are not secure; user names and passwords are not sent encrypted

Understanding FTP Services

  • The client connects to port 21 (control port)

  • Port 20 (data port) is used to tell the client which unprivileged port to use for data transfer

  • Maximum connections appears when limit is reached and client cannot connect

Understanding news servers l.jpg
Understanding News Servers

  • News servers allow threaded discussions

  • You post messages in a newsgroup

  • A newsgroup focuses on a single topic

  • There are more than 40,000 public newsgroups

  • There are hundreds of gigabytes of information generated per day

  • News servers can be set up for use within an organization

Telnet and windows l.jpg
Telnet and Windows

  • Telnet is not popular in Windows because telnet is text-based and Windows relies on a GUI

    • However, there are many command-line utilities that can be used, especially in Windows Server 2003

  • Before Windows, Microsoft networking depended on a single command net with many options

  • cacls can be used to alter permissions

  • netsh starts a networking shell which allows you to configure and display many network-related items

Cacls options l.jpg
cacls options

  • The format is: cacls file or folder name [options]

Netsh examples l.jpg
netsh Examples

  • Create a text file with commands to re-create the IP configuration

    • netsh interface ip dump

  • Ping the gateway IP address of each NIC

    • netsh diag ping gateway

  • In Windows Server 2003

    • Display errors in system log

    • Manage network monitor and performance

    • Defragment a drive

    • Shut down a server

Terminal services in windows l.jpg
Terminal Services in Windows

  • GUI-based access to a server

  • Can be used for remote administration or running applications remotely

    • In Windows 2000, you select remote administration on installation

    • In Windows Server 2003, it is installed already and you have to enable it

  • Client software is included in Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP

  • You have to install client software for Windows 2000

Understanding streaming media services l.jpg
Understanding Streaming Media Services

  • Used to transfer video and audio

  • By default, UDP is used

    • Although TCP and HTTP can be used because of firewall issues in an organization

  • No single standard exists as is true with SMTP, HTTP, POP3, and others

  • Broadcast methods

    • unicast – each packet is sent individually to each client

    • multicast – each packet is sent to many clients

Understanding streaming media services17 l.jpg
