Network configuration is the process of constructing a network to work properly and maintain the appropriate security permissions necessary to safeguard against unwanted threats.
The process involves the following tasks:
• Router Configuration: Specifies the correct IP addresses and route settings, etc.
• Host Configuration: Sets up a network connection on a host computer/laptop by logging the default system configuration, such as IP addressing, proxy, network name and ID/password, to enable network connection and communication.
• Software configuration: Any network-based software, like an intrusion detection system (IDS), is allowed access and provided with the appropriate credentials to monitor network traffic.
Moreover, network configuration includes internet/network sharing, software/application installation and firewall installation/configuration.
