Chapter 5 -- Managing Network Protocols and Services

Chapter 5

About This Chapter

A protocol is a set of rules and conventions for sending information over a network. The network protocol Microsoft Windows 2000 relies on most commonly is TCP/IP. TCP/IP is an industry-standard suite of protocols that enables enterprise networking and connectivity on Windows 2000-based computers. TCP/IP is used for logon, file and print services, replication of information between one domain controller and another, and other common functions.

This chapter presents the skills and knowledge necessary to configure and install TCP/IP (these are the same skills used to to install other network protocols, including NWLink, NetBIOS Enhanced User Interface (NetBEUI), and Data Link Control (DLC). The chapter then moves into a discussion of configuring inbound and outbound connections using either dial-up or virtual private network connections.
