Sculptor provides server programs that run on a database server in a network. Client machines connect to a server, operations are performed on behalf of the client and the results sent back over the network. These operations can take place within a local office network or over the Internet.
The Sculptor server program for UNIX and non-service versions of Windows is called kfserver. A service version, kfservnt, is available for Windows Server platforms. These programs are described in detail under Sculptor server programs.
The remote server manager, remmon, is no longer supported since Sculptor version 6.0.0.
Extensive security features are provided, allowing configuration of user permissions for access to Sculptor keyed files and sequential files, and to execute applications on the server.
The Sculptor client/server environment also supports efficient mechanisms for downloading programs from server to client. See Running Sculptor programs on a server.
