what does it mean when 'software/program' wants to act as a

server. i have avg free 8.0 and once in a while i get messages in essence saying, for example, 'avg update wants to act as a server' and asks me if i want to allow or deny this. i've seen this quite a few times, for google chrome, avg update, etc.
just want to know if i'm ok allowing it to act as a server. what happens when a program/software wants to act as a server.
thanks in advance for any clarification on this. mm724
i have an acer aspire 5520 laptop, running windows vista home premium, 1gb ram. anything i've forgotten, let me know. thanks. mm724
