What Is Server Applications

  • 5 Mar, 2012

    Server Applications:A system offers a service by having an application running that is listening at the service port and willing to accept a connection from a client. If there is no application listening at the service port then the machine doesn't offer that service.The SMTP service is provided by an application listening on port 25. On Unix systems this is usually the sendmail(1M) application which is started at boot time.[2:20pm julian] ps -agx | grep sendmail419 ? SW 0:03 /usr/lib/sendmail -bd -q15m18438 ?
