Comparing Client and Servers

Comparing Client and Servers

A network computer that manage the disk storage, printers, and other resources
shared with other network computers is a server. This tirm repeatedly throughout this post, so burn it into your brain,write it on the back of your left hand.

Any network computer that's not a server is a client. You have to remember this term.Write it on the back of your right hand.

Only two kinds of computer on a network: servers and clients.Look at your left hand and then look at your right hand. Do not wash your hands until you have these terms memorized.
The distinction between servers and clients in a network would be some- what fun to study in a sociology class. Think of the haves and the have-nots in society:

Haves: Usually the most powerful and expensive computers in a bnetwork are the servers. This fact makes sense because every user on the network shares the server's resources.

Have-nots: The cheaper and less- powerful and computers in a network are the clients. Clients are the computers used by individual users for every- day work, because clients'resources don't have to be shared, they don't have to be as fancy.

Most networks have more clients than servers. For example, a network with ten clients can probably get by with one servers.
