Indiserver is the public network access point where one or more INDI Clients may contact one or more INDI Drivers. Indiserver launches each driver process and arranges for it to receive the INDI protocol from Clients on its stdin and expects to find commands destined for Clients on the driver's stdout. Anything arriving from a driver process' stderr is copied to indiserver's stderr.

Indiserver only provides convenient port, fork and data steering services. If desired, a Client may run and connect to INDI Drivers directly.
