What is a Peer to Peer Print

  • 53

In a peer to peer network, every computer has the same capabilities as every other computer. They can all share files and printers with each other. There is limited security and everyone is responsible for backing up his or her own files. In some cases one computer is used to store all of the files for each user. This resembles a client server type network, but is not as secure and reliable. We usually only recommend this type of configuration for small offices of 5 PCs or less.
