Connect to Calibre content server from another computer

I would like to access the books on my Calibre content server from another instance of Calibre on my laptop. Is there any way to do this without simply cloning the database directory?

The content server is a Client-server relationship, not a server-server relation.

If you just want an offline Catalog, generate one using one of the menu choices accessed from the Right-click choice on the Conversion icon

Can I run the desktop application as a client? Or is it possible to manage the remote server via the desktop interface? I currently have a headless server running on an always-on machine, but I want to figure out a way to make that work nicely with the calibre application on my laptop so I can still access my ebooks on my laptop.

No there isn't. Eventually I plan on allowing calibre to conenct to a calibre-server instance as a "device".

Alright, thanks for clarifying! I would definitely appreciate if that functionality were to be added.
