In Internet Protocol (IP) networking, a server acts as a program which operates as a socket listener or receiver. A print server is device that connects output devices like printers to the client computers over a network. Printer will act as a server. There are many examples in print server such as Internet Printing Protocol, Line Printer Daemon protocol, Microsoft Network Printing protocol, NetWare, NetBIOS/NetBEUI, or JetDirect.

Re: What are the uses of server

A web server can be either computer which is hardware or the computer applications which is software. The web server helps to deliver content through software or hardware that can be accessed through internet.web servers usually host websites.web browser in web server initiates the communication and send a request using HTTP and after that web server responds quickly. In counter strike game we can make a web server and after that everyone can join the host and play the game as many as players can offer. I think the limit is 15.
