Distribution of components
The AppServer broker for an AppServer instance and its associated AppServer agents must all execute on the same computer. Client applications, however, can run on any computer in the network that can access the computer where the AppServer agent is running. Any required NameServer can execute on the same computer as a client application, the same computer as an AppServer instance, or on any other computer in the network to which both AppServer agents and client applications have access. With these conditions satisfied, OpenEdge can establish a connection between any client and any AppServer. For more information on how you can distribute AppServer components on a network, see the information on machine distribution in OpenEdge Getting Started: Installation and Configuration.
