4.1  Network Utilities

Several network tools are included in the Active@ Boot Disk shell. Among these tools are: Map Network Drive, View Network Status, Network Configurator, and Remote Desktop Connection.

Map Network Drive

Map Network Drive - A Mapped Drive is typically a place on a network server's hard drive that has been created or designated as a shared folder and assigned a local drive letter. It is given specific permissions of use as the folder will store information for particular users or groups.

View Network Status

View Network Status - ipconfig (IP Configuration) in Windows is a utility to print the local computer's current network configuration and to control the Windows Service that acts as its DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) Client. DHCP is a set of rules used by communications devices such as a computer, router or network adapter to allow the device to request and obtain an IP address from a server which has a list of addresses available for assignment.

Network Configurator 

Network Configurator - In computer networking, the ARP (Address Resolution Protocol) is the method for finding a host's hardware address when only its network layer address is known. Use the Network Configurator utility to configure IP settings and Windows firewall settings.

Remote Desktop Connection 

Remote Desktop Connection - As part of Microsoft Terminal Services, use this utility to allow a remote user to take control of your computer (Remote Desktop). Microsoft provides the client software Remote Desktop Connection for most Windows operating systems that allows a user to connect to and work with a remote server running Terminal Services.
