Nope. You don't need an FTP server to transfer files within a network.

or like mail server are those things really needed??


If you want to use email, then yes.

If you don't understand what servers are even for, I'd seriously reconsider taking the Net+ before you drop $100+ on it.

hi Cold Titanium if we dont need ftp server to transfer files within a network you is that we only used it if its outside your network?? im now living in english speaking country and now reading books before i will enroll so i can easily understand what the trainer is talking about. if you want to email you need email server so what you mean is that its a server within a network?? becoz if i use my email i can email to someone right even though i dont have email server. ( i assume if i have yahoo account im using yahoo email server to email)thanks Cold Titanium. Hope a clearer explanation will come. thanks
