Definitions for "Peer to Peer Network"
A network in which each computer communicates directly with one another, rather than depending on a server. This method is usually best suited to networks with a light demand.
A peer to peer network is a network system with no centralised computer acting as a repository.
A type of network in which each workstation has equivalent capabilities and responsibilities. This differs from client/server, in which some computers are dedicated to serving the others. Peer-to-peer networks are generally simpler, but they usually do not offer the same performance as a network with a dedicated server.
