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. 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.

[spacer]Informed & Armed

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 PC’s, 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 is installed.

The choices are:

  • Client for Microsoft Networks

  • Client for Novell Networks (NWLink client for IPX/SPX)
