Hello, everybody, And walk into this lecture and this lecture. We're gonna be talking about network technologies within Windows, so let's go ahead and dive into it.
So I sweep in continuing this dialogue we've talked about When the seven when there's a day, when is 10.
And in this lecture, I'm going to talk a little bit about when the seven and Windows eight and kind of how some of these features are crossed over into in this 10.
So Windows seven has something called the network sharing center. This is what it looks like right here on the right hand side. Ah, this is where you're gonna pull up when you open your control panels and you go to network and sharing sensor, starting with Windows seven, your network security settings air pre configured with the network trust you said. And what I mean by that is when you
connect your computer to a network, you're gonna have the option to select
home work or public. And based on what you determine, that network is that whatever you select, the security controls are gonna be placed for you. You can't alter them. You can make the adjustments. Is needed. But for those people who are not as adept to knowing how to configure security controls,
they were going to set you up with what you need.
And my new they are. They're fairly good. But this is Windows. And when this is highly vulnerable, it is a big target cause number one operating system in the world. So
just keep that in mind. You still wanna have your guard up, even though you may be said to public, and you may be technically invisible. That's not always the case to just keep that in mind. Stay paranoid people.
Windows eight and 8.1 thing ce They're not work sharing that work, insuring centers a little bit different. Um, so your network security settings are pre configured with the network your trusty sets. But instead of having the home in office and public,
you have private and public, and then you have the network ensuring status that you can change the connection properties to so private allows. You have the home group and other network devices. You can see those things public, other network devices, and there's no home group, so you can see the network devices on the network,
but you can't see a home group. You can't see any of those
features of your home.
You want to make sure you press private. That way you can see your home group. That way you can access the files on the home group, the media, whatever. Um, if you do select public, you will not be able to access those things. And then if you need to make modifications, you can go to the network and Internet status and change the connection properties from there.
Moving on remote access technologies is the other thing I wanted to note with network technologies. Basically, you have remote assistance and you have remote desktop connection. Remote assistance is for the home additions. It's basically like a one time remote access where you can
access the computer from across the house and, you know, run any diagnostics or remote in.
You can chat with them even and just kind of do this. Ah,
troubleshooting dialogue right from home. Kind of like if you were at the office and then the already s, which is the remote desktop connection.
That's right. There is more of the professional or enterprise level operating system feature that allows you to troubleshoot Ah, or just access a remote server. Remote computer, um, from anywhere. And you can do this in the cloud. You can do this and another office across the world.
You could do this right in the same home. As long as you guys have the professional or enterprise level operating system,
it's an ongoing access. Once you've configured it, all you gotta do is know the password and user name and the I P address. And you should be good to go, as opposed to remote assistance where that password may change. So you'll have to make sure you get the new password and put it, and then you can access the computer. But with already s to remote desktop
connection, it'll just be
whatever you said it too. All right, that about wraps up this lecture. I'll see you guys in the next one
