Chapter 16. OTHER NETWORK APPLICATIONS

Most people use a network for a limited number of purposes; they share files and messages, connect to the Internet, and maybe play multiplayer games or listen to music and watch videos from a server. But once you have your home or small business network up and running, you can use the network to accomplish some things you might not have expected.

This chapter describes a handful of other useful network applications. None of these is reason enough to install a network, but if you have come this far, you're already using the network for other purposes. Consider the network programs and services in this chapter as lagniappe, a little extra that might enhance your networking experience.
