    Our office is currently running a NT4 peer-to-peer network. It includes four worksations and an FTP server. I am wondering about the pros/cons of migrating to a server based network.

    I am proficient with TCP/IP and WNT4 Workstation. Would NT Server be a tremendous difference?

    If the server is a Domain Controller, then it wioll be different. If you run it as a member ser, then you will still be in a workgroup mode.

    Ok, if it is a domain controller then the difference is that you will have centralised accounts. You only need to create an account on the server, and then it can be used on any of the workstations. All the sercurity is centralised, to the accounts created on the server.

    As far as a 4 workstation network goes, this is the main difference.
