Description: In client-server technology, a client computer uses its software programs to make requests from server computers over a network. The server computers then process the request and handle delivery back to the client. However, the server may turn into a client if it formulates a service request to forward to another server, say, a database server. Clients and servers connected on a network are also referred to as nodes. Clients can send requests to more than one server. The most common types of clients today are web browsers.
