Peer-to-Peer Networking Today With Microsoft Windows dominating today's personal computing market (because of availability, usability, and acceptance as standards in the business world), peer-to-peer networking is certainly an easy-to-configure, low-cost avenue for sharing files and printers at home or a small business. ) Linux distributions also provide workgroup capabilities with other Linux clients or with Microsoft Windows clients (through the use of SAMBA, which is discussed in Chapter 6).

You will find that deciding on a particular approach to networking will be directly related to the number of users you have and the types of services your network needs to offer to these users. For example, if just a few users need to share a printer, a peer-to-peer network will probably get the job done. Peer-to-peer networks work particularly well in homes or small office situations where only a few files and possibly a printer need to be shared. Setting up a peer-to-peer network in a home also makes it easy to share a single connection to the Internet (connecting a network to the Internet is discussed in Chapter 15, "Connecting a Network to the Internet").

Some PC manufacturers are also beginning to provide Linux as a preinstalled OS on some systems. Pros of Peer-to-Peer Networking The pros related to peer-to-peer networking revolve around cost and ease of installation. Depending on the operating system you are running on your computers, peer-to-peer networking does not require the purchase of additional software or a computer to act as a dedicated network server. Most operating systems that support peer-to-peer networking also make it very easy for you to configure your computers so that they will communicate in a workgroup.
