A PC that requests information from a File Server.
In CSMA/CA each computer signals its intent to transmit before it actually transmits
data.  In this way computers sense when a collision might occur and may avoid
transmission collisions.  Broadcasting this intent however increases network traffic
and so slows down network performance. For this reason CSMA/CA is not as popular
as CSMA/CD.  Apple Macintosh computers use CSMA/CA when connecting together
with LocalTalk
The method whereby Ethernet and 802.3 stations transmit onto a network.  The
stations monitor the network and if no activity is sensed, begin to transmit.  They
continue to monitor, and should multiple stations have tried to access the cable at
once, they’ll sense a collision, cease transmission, wait a random time and then try
The sequence where the print server removes (Polls) a print job from the print queue
and forwards the print job to the printer.
Pronounced “ee-prom”.  A special type of ROM (Read Only Memory) that can be
erased by high intensity ultraviolet (UV) light and then rewritten, or reprogrammed.
EPROM chips usually contain UV-permeable quartz windows exposing some of the
chips internal components.
A networking specification that first appeared in a modern form in the early 1980’s.
It was developed by Digital, Xerox and Intel. It describes the type of data frame that
can be sent over a network and the methods used to manage data collisions.  It is
similar, but not identical to the IEEE 802.3 specification.
The process by which a piece of equipment behaves like other equipment (Of another
