Computer Networking Question, please help!


This is a question my teacher gave me as assignment. But I have no idea on how to do it! Please help!

Your friend has a small design shop with Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000, and Windows XP workstations. He has one older Windows NT computer acting as a file server and a LINUX computer running as a firewall on the DSL line. Previous to the current network set-up, your friend’s shop used what he assumed was the default Windows networking scheme – NetBIOS over NetBEUI. Now a new client wants your friend’s shop to log on to its WINS sever so they can share resources more directly. With security in mind, what do you tell your friend to do? Why? What are his (and his client’s) alternatives?

  1. You need to go back over your class notes and/or read the reading assignment ;)

    We won't help you if you don't try to help yourself. . .
  2. You could even discuss this with your teacher.

    If you are unable to do the research yourself, or have a conversation with your teacher, perhaps you should reconsider your choice of course.
