Installing and Configuring Network Protocols

Network protocols function at the Network and Transport layers of the OSI model. They are responsible for transporting data across an internetwork. You can mix and match the network protocols you use with Windows 2000 Server.


Install, configure, and troubleshoot network protocols.



Windows 2000 Server supports the following protocols:

■ TCP/IP, which is the most commonly used protocol and is installed on Windows 2000 Server computers by default

■ NWLink IPX/SPX/NetBIOS, which is used to connect to Novell NetWare networks

■ NetBEUI, which is a nonroutable protocol, useful for small networks

■ AppleTalk, which is used to support Apple Macintosh computers and is a fully functional, routable protocol

■ DLC (Data Link Control), which is primarily used for printers and connections to IBM environments

The following sections describe how to install and configure TCP/IP, NWLink IPX/SPX/NetBIOS, and NetBEUI, which are the primary protocols used with Windows 2000 Server. You will also learn how to manage network bindings.
