What are Peer to Peer network and Client Server network ?

Peer to Peer network :
In this network group of computers is connected together so that users can share resources and information.
There is no central location (server) for authenticating users, storing files, or accessing resources and each of them works as both client and server.
This means that users must remember which computers in the workgroup have the shared resource or information that they want to access.
Advantage of Peer to Peer network:
It is easy to setup
There is no need of any committed server as each peer acts as both server and client.
The network implementation is quite cheap.
The resources of a peer can be shared with other peers very easily in the network.
