Abstract

This invention relates to a method for managing access to a server having a single-access port among requesting workstations. Each workstation has information processing capability, and is equipped with buffer memory in which to accumulate and store individual requests, orders, and commands initiated by the person using the workstation. A communications circuit is then made between the workstation and the server (which occupies the single port of access to the server for the entire period of the server's response to the incoming batch command stream from the workstation).
