difference between client and server

Post by kn00t » Tue Nov 05, 2019 7:36 am

where's the difference between openvpn-client@vpn-conf.service and openvpn-server@vpn-conf.service? I'm trying to connect to a VPN server on boot through systemd

In client/server computing, a server takes requests from client computers and shares its resources, applications and/or data with one or more client computers on the network, and a client is a computing device that initiates contact with a server in order to make use of a shareable resource.

In the simplest form, a server is a connection point for several clients, that will handle their requests. A client is a software that (usually) connects to the server to perform actions. The client provides a user interface that allows users to carry out actions.
