Network Services Overview

Network Implementation Plan

Protocols supported by Windows 2000


This Tutorial is divided into three sections:


Windows 2000 includes key technologies that add value to both new and existing TCP/IP-based
networks. Although TCP/IP uses IP to locate and connect to hosts, users typically prefer to
use friendly names. DNS enables you to use hierarchical, friendly names to easily locate
computers and other resources on an IP network. DHCP simplifies administrating and
managing IP addresses on a TCP/IP network by automating address configuration for
network clients. WINS provides a distributed database for registering and querying a
computer name (which is the same as the NetBIOS name) to IP address mapping in a
routed network environment. With Windows 2000 Routing and Remote Access Service,
clients are transparently connected to the remote access server. Clients can also be
transparently connected to the network to which the routing and remote access server
is attached.


Implementing new technologies in an enterprise network environment requires research,
planning, approval, and funding. To obtain the greatest benefit from Windows 2000, you
need to plan your deployment carefully. As you begin your Windows 2000 operating system
deployment planning, you should understand its features so you can utilize them to your
advantage. This will help people in your organization to increase productivity and will
reduce total cost of ownership (TCO).

You should plan your deployment carefully to obtain the greatest benefit from Windows 2000,
and be aware of the different Windows 2000 operating systems. An enterprise network
deployment consists of different phases of a project life cycle: analysis, design, testing, and
production. Before deploying Windows 2000, record hardware and software inventories of
all servers and client computers in use on your network. Additionally, consider
interoperability issues and decide which protocols best meet your needs.


TCP/IP is an industry-standard suite of protocols designed for large networks. TCP/IP is routable,
which means that data packets can be switched by use of the packet's destination address.
TCP/IP's ability to be routed provides fault tolerance. Other protocols supported by
Windows 2000 include
