Thumbs up Mac server runs fine, just have questions

I've set up and run the Mac server on my G4 and it works flawlessly and I've had no problems with other users connecting however, I still use the little PC next to my Mac to run the client. Since I have limited Unix experience this may sound like a stupid question but if you're running a server do you still have to run a client on the same machine in order to communicate with other clients or can you just plug your headset in and use the server?

Again, sorry for the Noob question but if there's someone out there that knows the answer I'd appreciate the help.

Thanks

any OS client can connect to any properly configured OS server.

Yes, I do understand that. I guess I phrased my question wrong. If you are running a server, do you actually need a client to communicate with other clients connected to your server? Or, does the server serve this purpose?

the server only connects clients and only clients can communicate.

That's what I figured, thanks for your help. You saved me from getting on the floor and crawling behind my computer to hook up a headset to test this.

Vent is a great product and I'd be happy to pay a shareware fee for it. Can't wait for the Mac client though!
