Computers can relate to each other in different ways. In the client/Server relationship, one computer serves resources to the other computer. The Server may provide data, printing, Internet connection etc. to the Client which receives the resources.
1. Client / Server
The Server “serves” the client requests. The clients are independent of the server but will use the server for data storages, etc. A good example of a client/server relationship is when you connect to a web site on the Internet. The web site “serves” content to your computer in the form of web pages. A server provides resources for clients.
2. Peer to Peer
3. Master / Slave
When setting up a network which relationship to use is an important decision.
