V. INTRODUCTION:


This weeks lesson plan introduces creation of web pages. While this is not a focus of this class, it is still an integral part of the network since so much of todays business is connected through the network.



VI. CONTENT :



This weeks lesson plan introduces creation of web pages that contain references to games available across the network. It also should be setup to allow for media streaming across our little web. The addendum contains the printed out web pages that have worked in the past. Of course many different types of web pages can be created to accomplish the same ends.

Using the network map in the week 24 addendum, the class is to setup a sample Game Center. The setup of the actual network by this time should take no more than one class period. However the setup of the server to allow access to game playing is rather intense and difficult.

Assign a particular server to a task such as enterprise server, web server, or whatever.

Setup Servers for game center.  It would be nice to set up one server as an application server only just to handle the gaming and to have other servers handle the print serving, music streaming, web serving, etc.

The network works the best when each computer is connected to a domain. Permissions to access the files and games must be properly set to allow everyone. The default permission is not to allow anyone but administrators into the gaming.

Part of the routers setup connectivity, is the addidtion of helper commands to allow the network to function.

Maximize network speed

Setup email accounts for all workers in the morning and afternoon shifts of the company.



VII. SUMMARY:



This week's lesson plan puts all the learning in place. This is the culmination of all previous chapters. The class students must use a large part of their gained knowledge to accomplish the creation of the gaming network.
