Network topology..

Everything about the MCSE exams is about setting up domains. There is nothing on any of the tests about peer-to-peer networking. Therefore, set up your network just as you would most business networks.

Lesson 1: Any ethernet network with more than 2 computers will use a hub/switch to connect the computers regardless of whether it is a peer-to-peer network or a domain-based network.

Peer-to-Peer Network: Every computer on the network has it's own set of user accounts. Access control is on a per-computer basis. No central server is required. There is no central security policy.

Domain-based Network: User accounts are centralized on a domain controller. Security policies are centralized on a domain controller

You will need to use a standard ethernet network.

- When you set up the domain controller, you will also be able to set up routing and terminal services which, according to microsoft is on the test.

- All services, DNS, WINS, DHCP, etc will be closer to what is used on an Enterpised level network if you are using ethernet.

After reading all of the books, starting an ethernet network for yourself and getting different clients to connect to it, will really help put all of the facts together into practical experience.
