Response Mode: –
A feature that allows the modem to receive an incoming call, recognizes the protocol used by the calling modem and synchronizes that protocol. In a Hayes compatible modem, the response mode is determined by the ATS0 = n command where n determines the number of rings until the modem waits before the response
Antivirus program: –
A program that detects or terminates a computer virus! Some antivirus programs end and reside (TSR) programs that detect suspicious activity on your computer as it happens; others should be operated at regular intervals as part of a regular cleaning activity. The anti-virus program finds and identifies the virus by tracing typical patterns or suspicious activity of the system, such as unexpected disk drive or .EXE files that change in some unusual fashion. Recognizes the virus by comparing information with the database of known viruses that are kept on disk.
Make sure your antivirus program is carefully tested on the network before using it everywhere; Some programs cause huge general abnormalities
Apple Talk: –
Apple / Macintosh network, a protocol based on the ISO / OSI model that provides all Macintosh networking capabilities. AppleTalk can run under several network operating systems, including Apple Computer AppleShare, Novell NetWare for Macintosh, and Sun Microsystems TOPS. Apple Talk specifies the data link layer specifications as LocalTalk, Ether Talk, or TokenTalk, as well as the network layer Datagram delivery protocol. The transport layer contains four routing protocols: Routing Table Maintenance Protocol (RTMP),
Apple Talk Echo Protocol (AEP), Apple Talk Transaction Protocol (ATP), and Apple Protocol Session Protocol (ASP) ), Printer Access Protocol (PAP), and Zone
information protocol (ZIP) The display layer adds the AppleTalk Filing Protocol (AFP) file to remote files for shared disks.
AppleTalk review was released in 1989 to increase support to sixteen million nodes and increase the number of fixes needed for large networks.
Shortened Application A computer program designed to accomplish a specific task such as accounting, scientific analysis, word processing, or desktop publishing. Applications can generally be distinguished from system earthplans, system level utilities, and these can even be classified as stand-alone applications in hard disks in an independent computer, so only one user can access the application at a time. Network applications run on network computers and share many different users. Special applications such as groupware and e-mail allow communication between network users.
Search for anonymous ftp files on the Internet. Once a week, special programs are linked to all known anonymous ftp websites on the Internet and collect a full list of publicly available files. The list of files is stored in an Internet archive database and when you ask Arch to search for a file, it looks for the entire Internet in the database; you use anonymous FTP to fetch the file.
1. Transferring files to long-term storage, such as a magnetic tape or optical disk, if the files are not usually needed but should be kept at regular intervals. There is a website on the Internet that contains files that are available through anonymous FTP.
Abbreviation for the computation network of related resources. The Data Point Corporation and other manufacturers can access many PCs and workstations (up to 255) with a coaxial, twisted pair or optical cable.
ARCnet own-owned token-passing access method with up to 2.5 megabit / sec (Mbps). ARCnet Plus is a proprietary product of the data point running at 20 Mbps. ARCnet is very popular for smaller networks because it is relatively easy to create and operate, and because the components are inexpensive and widely available.
Acronym for Advanced Research Projects Agency Network. A research network funded by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), linking universities and government research institutes, originally built by BBN, Inc. in J 969. This was the backbone of today's huge internet. TCP / IP protocols started on ARPANET. In 1983, the military communications section was dismantled at MILNET. Asymmetric Multiprocessor: –
Multiprocessor-based design, in which the programmer matches a specific task for writing a program.
Asynchronous Communications Server: –
The local network (LAN) server allows you to configure the server to access the available resources, such as a symmetric multiprocessor (SMP) network users to dial the network into a public switched telephone system or access leased lines to asynchronous communications You can call asynchronous communication servers to dial-in / dial-out servers or modem servers
