What is involved in setting up a local area network?
A local area network consists of a file server, a print device and connected workstations. The workstations are connected via a switch. There is generally some operating system on the server that will provide security, access and services, such as file and print. Most networks today are Ethernet networks connected via Ethernet switches and network cards in the workstations, server and maybe the printers.
