I'm the "et al." who wrote that chapter, and I don't understand what you're trying to say.

What do you think "client" and "server" mean, and what do you think is wrong with that paragraph-length footnote (besides its length)?

Could you please try to rewrite it more accurately or in fewer words?

Hi, Al!

The X use of "client" and "server" is correct. The "remote machine"/"local machine" thing isn't.

Edit: Forgot to refer to you as Al. (Dang it, this is why I can't have nice jokes.) Apologies!
