What does a client server network provide and how does it work?
September 01, 2007 7:03PM
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.

How much important is a processor in a client computer of a client-server network?
Asked in Computers
What is computer centralization?
computer centralization is act like client server architecture. the different between centralization and client server is centralization is distribution network , any one can access the network. for example ATM system. client server architecture is not distribution network , it works inside the organization . for example between two floors communication. simply we can call centralization is work in WAN technology and client server architecture work on LAN technology.
What must a network adapter support on the client computer for the WDS server to work?

Configuration of Windows Server?
For situations where there are work group computers that are fed by a main computer, Windows server software is able to configure and control the network. The client computers can receive programs and applications from the server computer. The tasks of the server computer includes recognizing each of the client computers as specific machines within the server's domain. The server computer can dispense print permissions and application permissions to each of the client computers.
Advantages of Client Server system using LAN?
Almost every protocol uses Client/Server architecture, LAN and WAN alike. Advantages of client server system . * Centralization - access, resources, and data security are controlled through the server * Scalability - any element can be upgraded when needed * Flexibility - new technology can be easily integrated into the system * Interoperability - all components (clients, network, servers) work together

How do you create work group?
Configuring a workgroup is easy - give the workgroup and name and use that name in the workgroup section for the computer identification. The other choice is for a client-server (domain) based network. Therefore you only have two choices for computer identification; either as a workgroup or as a domain (client/server).

What are the models of computer network?
How to Configure a Network In this section you will learn how to configure a network, peer to peer, client server, workstation, server, basic data communication. Peer to Peer network model Before configuring a computer network, you have to decide that, which networking model you require. There are two main types of network models. Peer to peer and client-server network model. In the peer to peer network model you simply use the same Workgroup for all the computers and a unique name for each computer. Additionally, you will have to give a unique IP address of the same class A, B, or C for all the computers in your network and its related subnet mask e.g if you decide to use class A IP address for your three computers in your Peer to Peer network then your IP address/Subnet mask settings can be as follows. Computer Name IP Address Subnet Mask Workgroup PC1 100.100.100.1 255.0.0.0 Officenetwork PC2 100.100.100.2 255.0.0.0 Officenetwork PC3 100.100.100.3 255.0.0.0 Officenetwor google_protectAndRun("ads_core.google_render_ad", google_handleError, google_render_ad); Please note that the above example is for only illustration purpose so you can choose any IP address, computer name and workgroup name of your interest. For doing this right click on My Computer and then click Properties then go to the Network Identification section and set these. In a peer to peer network all computers acts as a client because there is not centralized server. Peer to peer network is used where not security is required in the network. If a computer fails to work then all other computers work normally in peer to peer network. Client/Server Network Model In the client/server network model a computer plays a centralized role and is known as a server all other computers in the network are known as clients. All client computers access the server simultaneously for files, database, docs, spreadsheets, web pages and resources like hard diver, printer, fax modem, CD/DVD ROM and others. In other words, all the client computes depends on the server and if server fails to respond or crash then networking/communication between the server and the client computes stops. If you want to configure a client-server network model then first prepare the server. Install Windows 2000 or Windows 2003 Server from the CD on the server computer and make a domain. You can create a domain by this command on the Run "DCPROMO". You can give this command once you install the server successfully. After you give the DCPROMO command you will be asked for a unique domain name. All the client computers will use the same unique domain name for becoming the part of this domain. This command will install the active directory on the server, DNS and other required things. A step by step wizard will run and will guide you for the rest of the steps. Make sure that a network cable is plugged in the LAN card of the server when you run the DCPROMO.exe command. When the Active directory is properly installed on the server, restart the server. You can create network users on the server computer and also name/label the network resources like computers/printers etc. Once you install the server successfully now come to the client computers. Install Windows 2000 professional on your all client computers. Once you install the Windows 2000 professional on the clients the next step is to make this computer (client computer) a part of the network. Configuration Steps 1. Choose a unique name for each client computer 2. Choose unique IP address for each computer and relevant. 3. Use the same domain name for all client PCs. Network/System administrators are required to do these administrative tasks on the server and client computers. Any shared resources on the network either on the server or the clients can be access through the My Network Places in the Windows 2000 platform. There is another way to connect to the shared resources by giving this command in the run \\ComputerName\SharedDriveLetter. Network configurations steps can be implemented by right clicking the My Computer>Properties> For giving the IP address you will have to right click on the My Network places>properties>Local Area Connection>Properties>Internet Protocols (TCP/IP)>Properties and then give the IP address and subnet mask of the same range and class for all the computers in the network.
Asked in Database Programming
Features of clientserver architecture in SQL?
Client/Server Database Systems Client/server systems are constructed so that the database can reside on a central computer, known as a server, and be shared among several users. Users access the server through a client or server application: • In a two-tier client/server system, users run an application on their local computer, known as a client, that connects over a network to the server running SQL Server. The client application runs both business logic and the code to display output to the user, and is also known as a thick client. In a multitier client/server system, the client application logic is run in two locations: • The thin client is run on the user's local computer and is focused on displaying results to the user. • The business logic is located in server applications running on a server. Thin clients request functions from the server application, which is itself a multithreaded application capable of working with many concurrent users. The server application is the one that opens connections to the database server and can be running on the same server as the database, or it can connect across the network to a separate server operating as a database server. This is a typical scenario for an Internet application. For example, a server application can run on a Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) and service thousands of thin clients running on the Internet or an intranet. The server application uses a pool of connections to communicate with a copy of SQL Server. SQL Server can be installed on the same computer as IIS, or it can be installed on a separate server in the network. Having data stored and managed in a central location offers several advantages: • Each data item is stored in a central location where all users can work with it. Separate copies of the item are not stored on each client, which eliminates problems with users having to ensure they are all working with the same information. • Business and security rules can be defined one time on the server and enforced equally among all users. This can be done in a database through the use of constraints, stored procedures, and triggers. It can also be done in a server application. • A relational database server optimizes network traffic by returning only the data an application needs.
