To transfer (data or programs) from a server or host computer to one's own computer or device
A server or a node
client is a personal computer or individual computer while server is a computer that contains information and data to be shared..client gets information from server
With client to server, many people are downloading data from one central location - a one to many relationship. With peer to peer, many people are downloading data from many locations - a many to many relationship.
Polling, on computer networks, involves a server and client. The Server will check if the client is ready to receive data. If not ,then data will not be transferred to the client.
To transfer (data or programs) from a server or host computer to one's own computer or device.
Any computer or application serving up data when requested.
Server Computer is the head of all the network computers that called as a client computer. Server computer main duty is the main storage of all the data of the client computers. Also, Server computer has the Main system that the client computers will be using.
When we receive data from a remote or central system, such as a web server, it is called a download. Sending of data from a computer to a website is called upload. "During a download we receive files and during an upload we send files." That is the difference.
No. Downloading is when you receive data from the internet. If you have downloaded a song you can transfer it between any device you have without worrying about downloading over and over . To be clear you only download when receiving data through the internet. Taking a CD and transferring it to your computer then your I Phone is also not downloading.
It's more or less exactly the same thing. Downloading it makes it into a file on your computer, streaming it has it arrive in a less tangible form, data in a buffer. But either way, if the movie is 80MB on the server side, you're still downloading 80MB of data whether you take a copy of the file, or stream it to a buffer. (Some buffering options offer lower quality versions which will involve a lower data transger).
A server acts as the central point for all programs and data over a network.
A network server in computer science is a way of connecting a group of computers through a central server. It allows data to be shared between them and everything is saved onto the server.
The Client is the computer or device requesting data from the Server, which is a computer hosting the data. It works through a network protocol, more than likely TCP/IP.
Computer network Polling is where a client server or Network Hub polls each computer for data. Data can only be sent when the particular computer is polled. If the computer has data to send but is not polled at that time, the data has to be stored until it can be sent. ^_^ JunkCollector ^_^
Server means the main computer which is used for the data storage and connected to the other computers, the other computer is called client.
The main function of server computer is to handle requests from client browser and respond with relevant data through a LAN or through Internet.
