Clients

Currently, there are three different models for communication between file servers and clients. Keep in mind this viewpoint has nothing (much) to do with the transport protocol, but is concerned with the access of resources on the network. They are:

  • Network File System (NFS): The default choice for UNIX/LINUX.

  • Netware Core Protocols (NCP): The default choice for Novell through Netware 4.x

  • Server Message Block (SMB): The default choice for NT/Windows.

Informed and Armed

A+ (like even many Microsoft tests) does not require knowing NCP/SMB/NFS. This data is presented so that you can quickly understand there are three different ‘styles’ of communication between a file server and client PC’s, making it clear that you must install the correct client software for the type of server you are attempting to communicate with.


In Windows 2000, Microsoft provides only 2 clients: Client for Microsoft Networks, which allows you to log into Windows domains and is installed by default, and Client Services for Netware, which allows you to access resources on Novell servers. You may install the Client Services for Netware client by clicking the Install button in the properties of a network connection, selecting Clients and clicking Add.
