A Client/Server network is a server-based network where there is a single machine that works as a server. The server does not do the computing for the clients but act as remote storage and do some computation for the clients only, for example, process and transfer data from a database.

Client, as known as “The user” is a machine in the network that requests resources from the server. A client can be a Windows or a Mac machine that requests services from the server such as disk space, connections or database as if the services run on the client machine itself.

Server, as known as “The provider” is a machine in the network that provides services to the clients, there are 3 roles in general

  1. File transfer and storage
