Connecting to SQL Server with a client application

Learn why connecting to SQL Server with a client application and then using client tools on the workstation or on the server will have the same results.

If I neglect server componet in SQL Server and start work with client componet only, what problems will I face?
There is no way to work with the SQL Server directly. You have to connect with a client application of some sort. If you are working in the client tools, you are working with the SQL Server. There is no problem with using client tools on a workstation and not on the server. Using the tools on the server or on your workstation will produce the same result.
