    Directs workstation requests to a WAN.

    Directs workstations request to a server.

    Directs workstations request to a database.
    Directs workstations request to a server.
  3. Why are RPCs difficult to implement?

    RPCs call procedures on the local computer, which is prone to failure.

    Network conditions can cause delays when passing information between the client and server.

    Programmers must code the client application with all code included in the server-based applications.

    Subroutines must be repeated in code each time they are called in order for RPCs to function properly.

    RPCs must be included as subroutines in source code.
    Network conditions can cause delays when passing information between the client and server.
  4. Which component in the RPC process provides the correct formatting for the request to the server NOS?

    Desktop OS.

    NIC.

    Server NOS.

    API. 

    LPC.
    API.
  5. Which statement best describes a LPC?

    LPCs call sub routines on the same computer on which they are run. 

    LPCs implement a client/server architecture where a client calls a subroutine located on server.

    LPCs can only be run on a server platform.

    LPCs send multiple instruction between the client and the server.

    LPC can only be run on a workstation platform.
    LPCs call sub routines on the same computer on which they are run.
  6. Which of the following is used when a client application calls software routines that run on a server applications?

    Remote protocol communications.

    Remote procedure calls.

    Redundant processing calls. 

    Remote processing connections.

    Remote procedure checking.
    Remote procedure calls.
  7. What is a binary bit called that represents a value or its opposite value?
    Marker.

    Pointer.

    Variable.

    Indicator.

    Semaphore.
    Semaphore.
  8. Which software allows PCs to function as file servers?

    APIs.

    OS.

    NOS.

    SMTP.

    LPCs.
    NOS.
  9. What does a print server provide to network users?

    Capabilities for only one print job.

    Capabilities for non-sharing of printer resources.

    Capabilities for only local clients to print.

    Capabilities for only a workstation to print to a remote printer.

    Capabilities for multiple clients to use a printer.
    Capabilities for multiple clients to use a printer.
  10. Which statement is true concerning Web servers?

    Clients must use a specific client application to access content.

    Only UNIX Web servers are used on the Internet.

    Apache HTTP Server runs only on UNIX platforms.

    The majority of Internet Web servers are UNIX-based.

    Microsoft IIS is difficult to install and maintain.
    The majority of Internet Web servers are UNIX-based.
