How does a networked server manage requests from multiple clients for different services?
- The server sends all requests through a default gateway.
- Each request is assigned source and destination port numbers.
- The server uses IP addresses to identify different services.
- Each request is tracked through the physical address of the client.
Explanation:Each service provided by a server, such as email or file transfers, uses a specific port number. The source port number of a service request identifies the client that is requesting services. The destination port number identifies the specific service. Servers do not use address information to provide services. Routers and switches use addressing information to move traffic through the network.
