Hi, Someone asked me a question the other day and I wasn't sure if I answered right so I thought I would ask you guys who would know better than I, please?

IPX/SPX uses what kind of topology? I answered netware

Where does token ring is more effective? Wasn't sure how to answer this

Which topology offers the best redundancy? Would the answer be ring or mesh

I appreciate any help provided.

thanks

IPX/SPX uses what kind of topology? I answered netware

that's a stupid question...or at least a poorly worded question with regards to the other questions....IPX/SPX doesn't care about topology...though they may have been asking if it were connectionless or connection oriented? IPX is just like IP in that it's connectionless and SPX is like TCP in that it's connection oriented....and yeah...they're novel crapwa...er...netware

Which topology offers the best redundancy? Would the answer be ring or mesh

if we're talking single topology not hybrid or complex...then a full mesh topology is the most redundant...since every device is connected to every device....this is however rarely able to be done...so you usually get a star mesh or a ring mesh or a bus mesh kind of topology...but in the purest sense....a full mesh topology is the most redundant

the second question...makes a little less sense than it should...and i don't have an answer
