Help me design a LAN for small office
Posted on 2010-09-09
I have 5 workstations that need to be networked & I'm undecided on whether to setup 5 individual PC's or setup a server type architecture. So basically I would like a recommendation on a LAN that will:
1. Accommodate at least 5 users, each with their own office/computer & email address.
2. Accommodate at least 2 printers.
3. Have automated backups for emails & other selected files of importance (minimum daily)
The office is purely a professional environment, no gaming, just day to day emailing/web browsing & running MS Office type applications.
I realize this question is very broad so please ask for clarification if needed.
Thanks in advance.
