Guide to Networking Essentials, Fifth Edition 8-2 Lecture Notes Overview In Chapter 8, students learn about simple network operations. They begin by learning about the operation fundamentals of network operating systems, their software components, and how to install them. Students also learn about the process of configuring network services. Finally, they learn about network application installation and configuration concepts. Objectives Explain the operation fundamentals of network operating systems Describe networking software components Describe the basic steps of network operating system installation Configure network services Explain network application installation and configuration concepts Teaching Tips Network Operating Systems 1. Provide an introduction to the role of NOSs. Stress their importance and briefly mention how they evolved. Basic Functions of an Operating System 1. Describe the role of an operating system. 2. Explain how the two features necessary in an NOS work: multitasking and time slicing . Stress that every contemporary operating system includes these functions. Teaching Tip Explain that many of today’s CPUs have the capability to act as multiple CPUs through the use of hyperthreading technology or dual-core CPU design, thus allowing these CPUs to process more than one instruction at a time. Teaching Tip For more information on network operating systems, visit: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Network_operating_system .

Guide to Networking Essentials, Fifth Edition 8-3 3. Briefly describe the two types of multitasking: preemptive and cooperative. Stress that a true high-performance NOS must be a preemptive multitasking system. Teaching Tip Read more about multitasking at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Computer_multitasking . Software Components of Networking 1. Describe some of the capabilities of an NOS (see list on page 294). 2. Explain that these capabilities are made possible through a number of NOS components, such as naming services, directory services, and client and server software, discussed in the following sections. Naming Services 1. Explain the importance and role of naming services. 2. NetBIOS Names . Explain that until the release of Windows 2000, Microsoft networking depended almost completely on using NetBIOS names to identify computers, shared drives and directories, printers, and other network resources. Use Table 8-1 to discuss the restrictions that apply to NetBIOS names. Note that ending a name with $ prevents it from appearing in the NetBIOS browse list. 3.
