Single Answer Multiple Choice

Which description of the term protocol is applicable in the context of network printing in a peer-to-peer network?

A. a program that enables a modem to emulate a network card
B. a program on one computer that connects to a program on another computer
C. a program that supports another program by performing an operating system function
D. a set of conventions and rules that govern data interchange between the client computer and the server computer

Answer:
D. a set of conventions and rules that govern data interchange between the client computer and the server computer

Tutorial:
A protocol is a set of conventions and rules that govern data interchange between a client computer and a server computer in a network. The same protocol must be installed on the client computer and the server computer to enable communication between the two computers. Typically, the protocol for communication is also used for printing over the network.

Network printing and file sharing on a peer-to-peer network requires three essential components:

 

 

  • a network protocol, such as TCP/IP or NetBEUI
  • a network client, such as Client for Microsoft Networks or Client for Netware Networks
  • a network adapter and its drivers installed

 

In addition, to share files and printers on the local computer, you must install a network file and printer sharing service, such that is provided by File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks.

A dial-up adapter is a software service that enables a modem to emulate a network card.

A network client is a program on one computer that connects to a program on another computer.

A network service is a program that supports another program by performing an operating system function.
