2.6 Client

Client refers to the sender of an ACORD Request Message. The client may be a computer system that a Customer is logged into, or it may be some kind of proxy device that is making ACORD Requests on behalf of the Customer.

This scenario is typical in the case of a Customer using a Web browser to perform Insurance messages. The Web server may be communicating using ACORD Messages to some back end system. In this case, the Web server is considered a proxy client and the back end system is the server.
