Think of it as the same reason houses need addresses or your phone needs to have a phone number.. Just like the mailman or someone coming to visit needs a way to find your house, one computer needs something that can help it find your computer to send data (file, email, etc) to your computer.

Hello eitar and welcome to BC :welcome:


I see that you have three topics posted so far, and all three appear to be questions from homework.  While we at BC don't object to helping guide someone to an answer, we are not here to do your homework for you.  I presume that you have been provided class materials or resources to look into.  I also presume that you have been given instructions for how to find information.  You need to utilize those materials and exercise your research skills.  Getting the correct answer isn't necessarily the goal: it's the path of finding that answer that is the goal.  This topic, and the others are now closed.
