Host components

From the given sketch, we see that there is a Workstation in the Client Zone and a Server in the Server Zone. They are systems and systems are in their most basic form represented by Host objects in our models. The nature of these systems is defined later on by what additional objects and settings we add to them.

We are seeing anything that has an ip address, such as computers, network printers, smartphones, tablets, embedded systems, virtual machines and so on, as being a kind of host.

Hosts are added to the networks either by dropping a single Host object to the canvas and then connecting it, or by selecting a Network object and use the arrows as previously described. However, for a Host object, there are component objects available.
