English term or phrase: Behave as server
Una opción en el directorio de configuración (dentro de un manual de instrucciones para la instalación de una aplicación)

Administrator | Behave as server:

This is a 'checkable menu item', and can be toggled between "On" (checked) and "Off" (not checked)
If you are configuring a server, toggle the "Behave as server" to "On". That way, GS/Text PC won't require operator responses to message boxes and it won't display documents for editing.
If you are configuring a user's PC, toggle the "Behave as server" to "Off". That way, GS/Text PC will provide the operator with useful pop up message boxes, and it will also present documents that the operator is allowed to edit.
