Unit 4 Assignment: File Access Methods
Whenever a client connects to a remote server for file storage or for some type of web content, some type of application and some underlying network protocol must be used. Otherwise the network would become useless when everyone would use a different method for access. There are many different file access applications in use on today networks like Samba, NFS, CIFS and others.
Do research on the web to discover how some of these applications work.
Directions: For this assignment, you will visit https://desktop-computers.knoji.com/file-access-methods/ (Links to an external site.) and compile a handout of advantages and disadvantages of major file access applications.
Write a one-page report in the form of a handout in which you describe each of the file access methods. You may need to search the public web using a search engine like Google or Bing to find description of the commands. Cite any sources you use in APA format; this includes sources for any screenshots that are not your own.
One person from your group will informally present your findings to the class so be sure to choose commands that you found interesting. We want to hear a good variety of commands that could become part of a handout to new users of Linux.
