I am giving you a normal answer rather than giving a big brief idea about it.

Normally a  computer in the network that controls the overall functioning of a network is called a server.

and the other  devices  without Server within a network are called terminal.Terminal is also known as Node. 

So the main difference between a server and a terminal is  function.Server share the resources to the terminal.

The users in the computer network access data and other resources through terminal computers

A computer server or plainly, a server, is the computer that provides services to all workstations, terminals, or computers that are connected to it. Servers can usually be found on schools, offices private or government, universities, hospitals, or any establishments or institutions where this may be needed. A server provides services like grant permissions, allocate resources, access account or user information, software access, and others.

Terminal is usually used to point to personal computer or workstation that is connected to a network. It is the machine that establishes a connection to the server or requests information, permission or resources to the computer server. To define it, it is an end-use device which is usually with display monitor and keyboard with little or no software of its own that relies on a mainframe or another computer [such as a PC or computer server] for its "intelligence."
