Acme, Inc. is the worldwide leader in producing Widgets. All of the 150 employees are given laptops so they can work from home and the office.
The employee workstations at Acme are a mix of Windows XP, Windows Vista, OpenSuse, and MAC. Each workstation obtains an IP address from a DHCP server at Acme. Each workstation has anti-virus, spyware, office applications, email, and Firefox web browser. Based on its job function, the workstation may also have database, graphic, or accounting software installed. The MIS department is responsible for installing and maintaining all applications on the employee workstations.
The file and print servers are mostly Windows 2003 using Active Directory, but there are some older Windows 2000 servers scheduled to be replaced. The Linux servers running Apache are used to support the company internal and external websites. Microsoft Exchange is used as the email application.
