In this lesson, learners will be introduced to the concepts of peer-to-peer and server–client network models. First, they will create a virtual peer-to-peer network, and gain an understanding of how data is shared in such a network and what the pitfalls of this network model are. Then, they will be able to connect two computers together in a simple peer-to-peer network and demonstrate sending messages between them. Finally, they will have the opportunity to connect computers together in a server–client model, utilising a DHCP server to handle the assigning of IP addresses to network clients.

This lesson is the fourth in an eight session teaching unit provided by the National Centre for Computing Education.
