If 2 programs has the relationship, that one program asks the other for a service, we talk about a client and a server. E.g. a webbrowser is a client, when it asks a webserver for a home page. And First Class is a client, when it gets in touch with (mailserver) to read email.
       Computers can be connected in other ways than client/server.
