Windows NT Server 4 can be the core of your small-office network, securely facilitating collaboration and resource sharing. Perhaps best of all, NT Server does pretty much everything within the familiar Windows interface. But Windows NT's blessing is also its curse. All that networking capability means that you, the user, have to learn a whole new set of information. Aimed at small businesses that can't afford a full-time Windows NT technician, Windows NT Server 4 for Dummies digs through the jargon and reveals how to plan, set up, and run a network of Windows computers.
This book begins with a bit of theory, explaining what network topologies and protocols are and how various options compare. From there, Windows NT Server 4 for Dummies goes through the process of selecting and connecting the hardware (network interface cards, hubs and cabling) you need to run a network. After that, it's all about setting up Windows NT internally--configuring users and groups, setting up trusts, and managing backups and other security measures.
Author Ed Tittel, who writes a popular series of books that help people prepare for the NT-centric Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE) exams, knows his stuff, as do his assistants. In fact, you could do worse than to use Windows NT Server 4 for Dummies as an MCSE study aid. Though it lacks practice questions and other features characteristic of MCSE books, this text covers many of the subjects you need to understand to pass those exams. --David WallFrom the Back Cover:
