Fulcrum is the conventional name to refer to a space which hosts a transport.

The reason it is known as a Fulcrum is that invariably the location of a transport becomes the pivot-point of an application architecture.

NetKernel Standard Edition has two fulcrums installed by default: (1) the backend fulcrum on port 1060 which hosts the management console and documentation, and (2) a the frontend fulcrum on port 8080 which is used to host examples and demo applications with a HTTP interface. Additional fulcrums with transports such as NKP and JMS are available in tutorial or example modules.
