Peer to Peer network
is the simplest form of connecting your office PCs together
to share information and resources. The network connectivity
software is already included in your operating system. The only
components that you need to add are a network card and a common
cable connection (usually through a hub) between your PCs. Networking
allows you to share information such as data files and accounting
files as well as peripherals such as printers, CD-ROM's, etc.
By adding third party software, you can also share a single
modem on one PC for dial up connections or Internet access through
one account for everyone on your network..
Peer to peer networking is recommended for offices with 5 PCs
