Peer-to-peer networking offers a quick and easy way to tie all your resources and people together. Employees can access information from and share it directly with others in the network. A peer-to-peer network can be set up for a very modest investment. All you need are network cards, cables, and Microsoft Windows 98 or higher, which has a built-in peer-to-peer network operating system. You can use peer-to-peer networking to keep your staff fully informed of your daily schedule by allowing them to access and view your business calendar as a shared file on your system. Then you can forget the hassle of leaving notes about where you can be reached and when you'll return. Employees can easily share files and file folders (directories) in a peer-to-peer network. With a couple of mouse clicks, they can easily let one or more colleagues access files on their computer's hard disk, so there's no more trading back and forth of disks, and files are always available—even if the employee is out to lunch.

To give your customers royal treatment, you can make your customer database available on the network. This way, any employee taking a call can quickly pull up a customer profile for information and changes. Customers spend less time on hold, and don't get that bounced-around feeling when they have to be transferred. The employee who answers the call can ask them how their last purchase is doing, giving the customer personalized attention. Customers are more satisfied, and your employees get more work done in less time. As you add people, computers, and other resources, a client/ server network can give you the increased performance you need. In a client/server network, clients are connected by cable to a centralized server. The server provides centralized security, backup, and recovery capability and controls access to sensitive files and expensive peripherals (such as color printers and modems). A dedicated server improves data integrity, because the most current version of a document will be saved in one location. This type of network requires a network operating system, such as Microsoft Windows NT Server.  With client/server networking, you can manage all security and data access from a central point. You can set passwords with different security levels for different files, set access times, and define access permissions and limitations to confidential data such as payroll and contracts.

Client/server networking gives you the resources to host and administer your own Web site on your server. New software now makes it easy for you to create Web pages and manage a Web site. Then, all you need to do is establish a domain name (Web address) and connect to an Internet service provider (ISP).

In peer to peer user password & other security documents are stored in clients itself.

But in Server/Client the information is stored in server.

The difference b/n c/server and peer 2 peer is that in the former we have a computer dedicated to act as a server( file server or print server....) and all the computers in the network are connected to it to share resources and hence all talk to the server.But in the second one we don't have a dedicated computer all the computers are at the same level but they talk each other!!

server machines are widely used in banks as the data stored in client machines of an area could be viwed in the server machines of the same branch as well as the server machines of other branch in some other locality
the server machines also have high storage capacity while client machines donot hence their cost is also high
