"client" & "server" versions -- what's the diff?

Post by Doug Barn » Wed, 11 Dec 1996 04:00:00



What are the real differences in 4.x between "client" and
"server" versions of the OS? I've got a bulleted list from
IBM Direct that mentions "TCP/IP for clients" and "TCP/IP
for servers."  The general consensus of the folks at IBM
I spoke with was that things were pretty much the same at
the library level.

Anyone know the real story here? Clearly there are various
apps and whatnot that come with one but not the other, we're
only concerned about the implementation of the TCP/IP stack.

(I'm hoping they don't do something similar to what MS did
with Windows NT 4.0 briefly, e.g., build in limits into the
TCP libraries.)
