2. What is the difference between DNS and DSN?
3. How is a firewall different than anti-virus software?
4. What do I need network monitoring software for?
Question: What is DNS?
Answer: DNS stands for Domain Name System. This is an Internet service that translates IP addresses into Domain Names. For example, the IP adress 73.3.154.134 translates into HostBizTools.com.
Question: What is the difference between DNS and DSN?
Answer: DNS stands for Domain Name Server which translates IP addresses into Domain Names to help people navigate the internet while DSN stands for Data Source Name. A DSN stores the data source information that the Driver Manager needs to connect to the database.
Question: How is a firewall different than anti-virus software?
Answer: The firewall is a network's first defense against attack. It analyses network traffic as it is about to pass into a network and filters out any traffic from sources known to be harmful. Anti-virus software is a broad term encompassing any software that removes viruses or scans email or computers for harmful programs.
Question: What do I need network monitoring software for?
Answer: Network monitoring software allows administrators to make sure that traffic is flowing smoothly through the network. It is also an important tool when there is a problem or attack on the network. If the website is down network monitoring software can help locate the source of the problem whether someone has kicked the network cable loose on the back of the server or a major router is down in Chicago thus preventing site access to Internet users on the other side of that router.
