microsoft certifications
Microsoft Certifications
  • MCSE and MCSA are explained at Microsoft’s web site: http://www.microsoft.com/traincert/mcp/default.asp

    • Exam objectives appear in Appendix A of textbook
    • Prep test on the CD-ROM bundled with your textbook
    • Pass first test, then can call yourself MCP – Microsoft Certified Professional
    • If you are interested in a network career, definitely pursue this
  • Other certifications:
    • Network+ from CompTIA at http://www.comptia.org/certification/network/default.aspx/resources.aspxwhich fits very nicely with MIS 430 conceptual material
    • CNA, CNE from Novell based on Novell NetWare

grading and assessment
Grading and Assessment
  • Final grade is based on 500 points system:
    • 3 exams at 100 points
    • Lab projects at 150 points: very important part!
    • Quizzes and daily at 50
  • Letter grades are based on 90%=A, 80%=B, ….
  • Some extra credit may be available – see me. It must be relevant to a current topic and substantive.
  • Projects may be written as a group and 1 copy turned in; no grading difference between individual and group write-up.

planning a network model
Planning a Network model
  • Networking Terminology
    • Client: workstation computer
    • Server: computer that performs network sharing for files, printing, and other resources
    • Workgroup: group of clients (and servers) that share files and resources
    • Peer to peer network: use a non-dedicated client as server within a small workgroup (no server)
    • Server-based network: use a dedicated server

MIS 431 Spring 2006

peer to peer networking
Peer to Peer Networking
  • Use a common protocol: NetBEUI or TCP/IP
  • Common workgroup name (e.g., ISUSDSNT)
  • Install File and Print Sharing on shared device
  • Share the
    • Drive/folder
    • Printer
  • Go to Network Neighborhood to locate other peers on the network: it works well for small number of users, up to 10
  • For versions before Windows 2000 – don’t share by user name but by passwords. See next page..

MIS 431 Spring 2006

peer to peer networking with windows 2000 xp prof
Peer to Peer Networking with Windows 2000/XP Prof.
  • When you share resources …
    • Must give permission to use that resource to a specific user name
    • Therefore each user of your computer must have a user name on that machine
      • They must log in with that user name and password on their own machine; Windows picks it up automatically when they try to use shared resource
    • Much simpler to give permissions to groups and then assign users to the group
      • Ex: Power Users group can be given permissions to use printers, change the print queue, etc.
      • Avoid making people a member of the Administrators user group unless that must have that level of permission!
