    LAN stands for local area network. A LAN is a group of computers and peripherals in a close area that are connected in order to share resources and information. Many companies use LAN's to share devices in their offices. Telecommuters normally use a LAN in their home office to share Internet access and peripherals. LAN's are useful for sharing Internet access among computers.

    Hello Bharath,

    A Local Area Network (LAN) is basically a smaller network that's confined to a relatively small geographic area. LAN computers are rarely more than a mile apart. Examples of common LANs are networked computers within a lab, school, or building.

    Within a LAN network, one computer is the file server. This means that it stores all software that controls the network, and it also stores the software that can be shared among computers in the network. The file server is the heart of the LAN.

    The computers attached to the file server are called workstations. Workstations can be less powerful than the file server because they don't have to store as many files and applications as the file server, and they are not always on and working to keep the network up and running. However, workstations may also have additional software stored on their hard drives. Most LANS are connected using cables.

    Thank You.

    Regards,
    Manoranjan Sahoo
