The Network Layer

The Network layer handles connectivity of the host system to the network, and includes packet traffic transmitted to and from the server. Like the Generic server, the Network layer of the Windows Generic server also executes a Network and a NetworkTraffic test. In addition to these two tests, an exclusive WindowsNetworkTraffic test (see Figure 1) is mapped to the Windows Generic server.
