Client Server and Web Application

by bsdeepu In reply to A web application

Client Server - Application is one where you have a designated server and its client - basically like a network setup in college, company - called an intranet. Or the Unix and Linux server and clients accessing the server setup for real time access. This is a simplest way to say about the client server, ofcourse the Client Server can be connected to internet and so many complications.

Web Application - Where you access the web server using the browsers, which can go thru your intranet.

Guys correct me if i am wrong.
