Comment: How about simply "stream" and "client"? (Score 1) 61 61

The server just happens to be a well know location for a service that can be connected to. The client initiates the connection. Once the connection is establised the "server" and the "client" effectively become "clients" of each other, when the output of one is plugged into the input of the other.

For example, in .net land (it's where I am, forgive me) you have a TcpListener on the server side. Then when a client connects using a TcpClient, the server creates a corresponding TcpClient on the server side. Writing to the client's TcpClient.Stream will allow you to read from the servers TcpClient.Stream, and vice versa.

Your API should probably be considering the establishment of the connection, rather than the connection itself.
