Workgroup (Computer networking)

A workgroup is Microsoft's terminology for a peer-to-peer PC computer network.

Microsoft operating systems in the same workgroup may allow each other access to their files, printers, or Internet connection. Members of different workgroups on the same local area network segment and TCP/IP network can only access resources in workgroups to which they are joined.Fact|date=March 2008
