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 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.

A+ (and even many Microsoft tests) do 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 PCs, making it clear that you must install the correct client software for the type of server you are attempting to communicate with.
Note that A+ does not focus on the technical issues of networking at the enterprise level. Therefore the discussion of multiple servers with separate permission lists and how they interact is beyond the scope of this book.
The client that must be chosen
is the method for connecting to the network. There
are 2 (MS) choices installed by default when the operating system
The choices are:
- Client for Microsoft Networks
- Client for Novell Networks (NWLink client
