PI-SDK on a PI Networking System (PINS) Node

When installing the PI-SDK on a Windows NT machine where a PI3 server is not installed locally, the setup process installs two services, PI Network Manager and PI Message Subsystem. The combination of these two services is referred to as the PI Networking System, or PINS. The PINS PI Network Manager is used to handle all PI3 communications, passing messages to the PI Network Manager process on remote PI3 systems and passing the replies back to the PI-SDK. The message subsystem is available for local logging functions.
