Be able to describe the basic capabilities (i.e., client connectivity, local security mechanisms, and authentication) of NetWare, Unix/Linux, Windows, and Macintosh. All of the OSes listed, with the exception of NetWare, can perform very admirably as clients. NetWare, specifically, was not designed to be a client (with a few exceptions). When operating as clients, all of the OSes listed can connect to NetWare, Unix, Windows, and Macintosh. However, only a few (Unix, Windows, and Macintosh) have client-accessible local security. NetWare is so secure that you can’t do anything with the files on the NetWare server from that server’s console. Each of the listed OSes uses a different authentication method. Unix and Windows can use Kerberos encrypted connections; NetWare uses public key/private Key encryption; and Unix, Windows, and Macintosh can (at their lowest security settings) send their passwords in clear text over the network.


Be able to recognize Windows NT/2000 by appearance. Windows NT/ 2000 uses the familiar Windows 9x interface and its “look and feel.”


Be able to recognize the NetWare operating system by appearance. NetWare uses a text-based server interface with a colon prompt, although NetWare 5 does have a Java-based graphical console.


Be able to recognize the Unix operating system by appearance. Unix/


Linux primarily uses a text-based interface, but has a graphical interface on some flavors of Unix known generally as X Windows.


Be able to recognize the Macintosh operating system by appearance.


The MacOS has a completely different interface from Windows and X Windows, and is easily identified by its apple in the upper-left corner.
