Q

What is a live machine?

What is a live machine (in relation to Network/Internet Connection)? If there is more than one machine in a particular network system and one of them is Live, what does it mean?
The term 'Live Machine' is used in different conjunctions. In networking terminology it is the machine, which is directly accessible over the Internet. This machine could be a multihomed computer having an interface connected to Internet or a Machine hanging off of a DMZ. In other terms it could be referred to as a Production box running critical services.
Hope this helps.
