The model represents the client part of a symmetrical linking model. A symmetrical
linking model is intended for simulating different parts of large circuits on separate
computers, connected by a network. These parts are combined by the linking models. The
server and the client parts with the same endpoint value represent one connection.

The communications between a server and a client part may be realized using RPC
(remote procedure call, in this case workstations may be connected by a network) or
using a pipe (a section of shared memory that processes use for communication).

This version of model is intended for simulation of linear circuits that were
distributed only on two parts.
