I love multi choice and sometimes the donkey vote ....the top answer looks good
http://nfs.sourceforge.net/

or wait until you get your results back and see?

normally there are 2 rightish answers and 2 wrong answers
since its a network question that might be a clue

thanks for the answers, the test was given to us by the instructor and we have to research for the correct answers, so, till today nobody is confident about a correct answer to that question.
personally i think the answer is A. NFS
