 Client (computing) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A thick client (also known as a fat client or rich client) is a client that performs the bulk of any data processing operations itself, and relies on the server it is associated with primarily for data storage.
A thin client's job is generally just to graphically display information provided by an application server, which performs the bulk of any required data processing.
Clients are generally classified as either "thick clients" or "thin clients", although more recently there has been a proliferation of other classifications.

 Client-server - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Clients get all or most of their information and rely on the application server for things such as configuration files, stock quotes, business application programs, or to offload computer-intensive application tasks back to the server in order to keep the client computer (and client computer user) free to perform other tasks.
The interaction between client and server is often described using sequence diagrams.
Another type of network architecture is known as a peer-to-peer architecture because each node or instance of the program is both a "client" and a "server" and each has equivalent responsibilities.

 Writing the Server Side of a Socket
This class keeps track of where the client and the server are in their conversation and serves up the server's response to the client's statements.
Client connection requests are queued at the port, so the server must accept the connections sequentially.
As long as the client and server still have something to say to each other, the server reads from and writes to the socket, sending messages back and forth between the client and the server.

 ClockWatch Client/Server - Network Time Sync across a LAN

 Client/Server Frequently Asked Questions
In database servers, clients passes SQL (Structured Query Language) requests as messages to the server and the results of the query are returned over the network.
The logical extension of this is to have clients and servers running on the appropriate hardware and software platforms for their functions.
The code that processes the SQL request and the data resides on the server allowing it to use its own processing power to find the requested data, rather than pass all the records back to a client and let it find its own data as was the case for the file server.

 Client Side State - HTTP Cookies
Cookies are a general mechanism which server side connections (such as CGI scripts) can use to both store and retrieve information on the client side of the connection.
Servers should not expect clients to be able to exceed these limits.
If a proxy server receives a response which contains a Set-cookie header, it should propagate the Set-cookie header to the client, regardless of whether the response was 304 (Not Modified) or 200 (OK).

 Client and Server Scripting in Web Pages (Visual InterDev Technical Articles)
After you determine which browser and client set you would like to target, you can evaluate the feature set for your Web application to determine which features are most efficiently processed on the client and which on the server.
For example, to manage state in a client server application, you could use global variables but in a Web application, which is a series of hyperlinked pages, managing user states between pages is very different.
Client scripting, on the other hand, is used to make your pages more interactive after they have been sent to the browser.

 Client/Server Software Architectures--An Overview
Advantages are that with less software on the client there is less security to worry about, applications are more scalable, and support and installation costs are less on a single server than maintaining each on a desktop client [Schussel 96].
A client is defined as a requester of services and a server is defined as the provider of services.
A single machine can be both a client and a server depending on the software configuration.

 An Exploration of Dynamic Documents
In server push, a HTTP connection is held open for an indefinite period of time (until the server knows it is done sending data to the client and sends a terminator, or until the client interrupts the connection).
Client pull -- the server sends down a chunk of data, including a directive (in the HTTP response or the document header) that says "reload this data in 5 seconds", or "go load this other URL in 10 seconds".
In client pull, HTTP connections are never held open; rather, the client is told when to open a new connection, and what data to fetch when it does so.

 Client/Server Fundamentals Page 1
The functions performed by a client and a server can be implemented by a set of software modules, hardware components, or a combination thereof.
The basic difference between C/S and peer-to-peer is that in a peer-to-peer model the interacting processes can be a client, server, or both while in a C/S model one process assumes the role of a service provider while the other assumes the role of a service consumer.

 client/server - a Whatis.com definition
In the usual client/server model, one server, sometimes called a daemon, is activated and awaits client requests.
Relative to the Internet, your Web browser is a client program that requests services (the sending of Web pages or files) from a Web server (which technically is called a Hypertext Transport Protocol or HTTP server) in another computer somewhere on the Internet.
For example, to check your bank account from your computer, a client program in your computer forwards your request to a server program at the bank.

 Client / Server Computing
Since the user interface is the responsibility of the client, the server has more computing resources to spend on analyzing queries and disseminating information.
The client/server model is a form of distributed computing where one program (the client) communicates with another program (the server) for the purpose of exchanging information.

 client-server from FOLDOC
This model allows clients and servers to be placed independently on nodes in a network, possibly on different hardware and operating systems appropriate to their function, e.g.
A client sends requests to a server, according to some protocol, asking for information or action, and the server responds.
This is analogous to a customer (client) who sends an order (request) on an order form to a supplier (server) who despatches the goods and an invoice (response).

 Client/Server Computing
In between came the two-tier client/server systems where the "server" was database server, and substantially all logic would reside on the "client" PCs.
Traditional mainframe systems are a pathological case where the "presentation server" was a 3270 terminal, and all other aspects of system logic ran on the mainframe server.
PC/LAN systems provide the opposite pathological case where there would be a file server where shared files would reside, and substantially all system logic resided as part of a program running on each PC.

 Client-Server FYI
A CGI script could ask a database on the Server machine (or another machine accessible to it) for numbers from a company's information file, then it could reformat that into a pretty display to pass back to the Webserver to give to the Web client.
Server Side Includes (SSIs) are closely related to CGI in that they are instructions to the Webserver for performing special functions.
CGI is a specification that says that the server will hand input to a program in a specific format, and expect to get output returned in a specific format.

 Client-server mail protocols FAQ
Stealing from that document: With POP (Post Office Protocol), mail is delivered to a shared server, and a personal computer user periodically connects to the server and downloads all of the pending mail to the "client" machine.
With IMAP, mail is again delivered to a shared server, but the mail client machine does not normally copy it all at once and then delete it from the server.
ftp://ftp.cac.washington.edu/imap/imap.tar.Z The Cyrus IMAP server differs from other IMAP server implementations in that it is generally intended to be run on "sealed" servers, where normal users are not permitted to log in.
