Daemons are processes that runs behind the scenes to perform a specific task. Daemons have no user interface; you do not interact directly with them. Instead, you use Workshop, which initiates communication with the appropriate daemons.
A daemon allows processes (Workshop, tasks, files in hot folders, RBA, and so on) to interact with a job. (Daemons are sometimes called servers, but the Prinergy documentation reserves the word server for hardware.)
The file names of daemons appear in the Processes pane of Administrator and in the Task Manager dialog box in the Windows operating system.
