If it is the server that reaches out to the "clients", tells them when to wake up, causes them to display what it wants them to display, demands input from the lowly user/operator/customer on the server's schedule-or-whim, and is generally in control of the whole show, then I might concede that you have found a "server/client" arrangement. Treasure it. It's likely more rare than hen's teeth.

If it's the clients that connect and make demands of the server, with which the server attempts to comply, then you are describing a client/server relationship, just like every other frikken' client/server relationship in the known universe.

Tell 'im I said so.
