Explore wiki features. Background The lab topology should be configured and ready for use. If there are connectivity issues with the lab computer connecting to Eagle Server, ask the instructor for assistance. The topology diagram shows two computers connected to a cloud. In networking, a cloud is often used to symbolize a more complex network that is not the current focus of discussion. In this lab, you will use a host computer that connects across the cloud to access a Twiki. In subsequent chapters you will study in great detail the devices and protocols that are inside the cloud. Scenario In this lab, you will have the opportunity to learn about the different parts of a wiki. If you ever used Wikipedia , you are probably already familiar with the look and feel of a wiki. After using Wikipedia , with its rich content and flexible links, moving back to flat files may feel constricting and unsatisfying. To gain experience with a wiki, the TWiki wiki server installed on Eagle Server will be explored. Task 1: Define the Terms Wiki and Blog. Wikis Wiki is a Hawaiian-language word that means fast . In networking terms, a wiki is a web-based collaboration tool that permits almost anyone to immediately post information, files, or graphics to a common site for other users to read and modify. A wiki enables a person to access a home page (first page) that provides a search tool to assist you in locating the articles that interest you. A wiki can be installed for the internet community or behind a corporate firewall for employee use. The user not only reads wiki contents but also participates by creating content within a web browser. All contents are Copyright 19922009 Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved.

Edit and auto links are available to edit a page and automatically link pages. Text formatting is similar to creating an e-mail. A search engine is used for quick content location. Access control can be set by the topic creator, defining who is permitted to edit content. A wiki web is a grouping of pages with different collaboration groups.
