Client Server Applications
 
A client-server application describes two applications that work together on a (client)request/(server)response basis. The client requests an action or service from the service provider, which is the server. For example, to view this article you had to open up a (client) web browser, type in a URL and send it off to a web server. The web server processed and then returned the (HTML, PHP or ASP) page to your web browser, which then parses the data and displays it in your browser.
This is what is called a client server application. When you send or retrieve your email messages, you use the client-server architecture, in the sense that you use a client, like Outlook, to connect to a mail server somewhere to retrieve your messages. So it is an extremely vital architecture, without which remote data access would not exist.

The Client Application
So how does a client work? As I have stated before, the client basically makes requests to a server and then waits for a response, which it then interprets and displays. Now, how does the client know where the server is located? Well, for a client to connect to a server, it needs two things, the IP address and the port number.
The IP address tells the client where the server is located. A server can be located on the same machine, on a local network, or on the Internet. In other words, it could be located anywhere on the planet. Wherever the server is running, it will have an IP address and that is the only way a client can ID and connect to a server. As for the port number, that is where the server "listens" for connections. A port number is what the server uses to send and receive messages.
 
The Server Application
The server processes request made by a client and responds to the client. That is the core function of any server. Servers are generally passive as they wait for a client request.
Unlike clients, servers must run continually because a client can send a request at any time. Clients, on the other hand, don't have to run continually. They only need to be running when they require a service.
Many server applications allow for multiple clients to request a service. For example, while you are reading this page, others interested in this article could also request and read the same web page.
