request mode

Requestmode is a classic data transmission service.

In request mode, a service user, for example a web browser, asks a service provider, a web server, for a specific service or an HTML document. The web server responds by transferring the HTML document, for example a web page, to the browser.

In the eighties, large amounts of data were often transmitted at night in polling mode, because considerably cheaper transmission rates could be used at night.
