Wat PC is Required for Networking?

im taking a PTCL 1 MB Link. and i want to share a speed with my friends... so wat configuration is required for making a server ? (1 server + 4-6 Clients = 5-7 Users)

and i also want to know that wat kind of PTCL is Launching there PacKage ?

is that :

1024 kbps (kilo bits per second) ??

1024 kB/sec (kilo Bytes per seconds) ??

the package is 1024 kilobits

to share the connection u can buy a router or recycle ur oldcomputer and make that a router by installing specialised distros of linux like IPcop or smoothwall

you can share even without a server, just use a switch. The headache of the server wont be worth it. But you will have to bear with the inconsistent speeds

if it the link is 1024 Kbps then it is so bullshit pacKage :(

men im confuzed :s ....

the Current Net that im using, is taking me 50-60 KB/sec (average) and 100 - 150 kB/sec (Maximum)

please chk this ..........

-------------------------------------------------

8 bit = 1 byte

then 50 bytes x 8 = 400 Kbps (:o)

(half Link to mujhe mera Cable wala he de raha hai then y i and other ppl take PTCL ??)

(this is my local Cable wala connection speed (:D))

-------------------------------------------------

1024 kilobits (informal notation: kilobyte = 1024 bytes)

bits = 1048576

bytes = 131072

kilobits = 1024

kilobytes = 28

megabits = 1

megabytes = 0.125

gigabits = 0.0009765625

gigabytes = 0.0001220703125

terabytes = 1.19209289550781e-07

petabytes = 1.16415321826935e-10

--------------------------------------------------------

are u sure that it is 1024 Kilo Bits ?? [:o]

u mean “Line In” into Modem and “Line Out” to switch ?? or maKing a “Bridge Connection” ??

and wat is a Requirement of SERVER ?? wat Configuration is best for Making a Server ? how much Ram , Processor, etc…?

Wrong math!

400 kilo-bits/second = 50 kilo-bytes/second

50 kilo-bytes/second = 51200 bytes/second

You can only wish but you can’t afford 1MB (megabyte/second) connection.

1 mega-byte/second = 8192 kilo-bits/second = 8 mega-bits/second

If I am not wrong then price of such dedicated connection might be from 100 thousand to 500 thousand rupees (usually use as backbone).

PTCL is giving 1024 kilo-bits/second = 1 mega-bits/second

It’s is more than enough than you can play with it.

Fe-Aman Allah.

@ Wampyr

oooh.. na na dear . ur math and my math is rite but u don understand my problem ... :s

currently i hav :

1200 Kbps (kilo bits)

or

150 kBps (kilo bytes)

this is My downloading speed @ local Cable Connection.

and wat abt Server Configuration ?? [:o]

Any computer that can run XP (for easy networking). 5-7 users don't need much at all.

hmmm thanx Bro .. [:)]

btw .. me and me friends are decided that we dont need PTCL 1 MB link coz its actaully 1024 Bits [:(].

so ..... we cancel to make a Happy NetworK in our Area [:D]

thanKs u all my bro .. thanK u so much
