What does it mean to you that something is a workstation
or a server?  These terms are not precise ones.

Some people run servers as workstations, and vice versa,
for example.  On some versions of Windows, the primary
difference was in the number of simultaneous incoming
connections that were allowed, but only for MS network
services, not TCP/IP ones.
