Active Directory Client

Active Directory Client is a client on a machine running Microsoft Windows that allows the computers to log on to a network by locating a domain controller and then accessing information published in Active Directory. The purpose of Active Directory Client is to enable the client machine to access information stored in Active Directory on domain controllers in the network.

A version of Active Directory Client called the Directory Services client is available for computers running Windows 95 and Windows 98. This client allows them to log on to a Windows 2000 domain and access information published in Active Directory. The Directory Services client can be found in the \clients folder on the Windows 2000 Server compact disc. Microsoft Internet Explorer version 5.0 or later must be installed on the machine running Windows 95 or Windows 98 prior to installing the Directory Services client. A similar client will also be available for Windows NT version 4.0 machines.

This is different from duplex transmission, in which signals can simultaneously be sent and received by a station, and from half-duplex transmission, in which signals can be sent or received but not both at the same time.

Full-Duplex is a mode of communication in which data is simultaneously transmitted and received between stations. Full-duplex communication is twice as fast as half-duplex communication, and typically uses two separate pairs of wires (or two channels for wireless networking) for supporting simultaneous transmission and reception by a host.
