The ONSPEC control software family has a rich variety of products that allow users to configure their computer systems with the following system architecture:


  • Workstation
  • Host-Terminal or called Host-Slave
  • Client-Server

A large ONSPEC computer system could include different computers ranging from personal computers all the way to mainframes. The above system architecture can even be mixed together depending on user's budget, requirements, management philosophy, and existing facility.

ONSPEC for Windows products fully support a Client-Server environment. This chapter will discuss the ONSPEC products that are related to the design and configuration of a Client-Server based ONSPEC computer system.
