should take a look at the CIGI API User's Guide Overview section,
Most high end simulators do not have everything running on a single
machine the way FlightGear is currently implemented. The airplane 
model is run on one machine normally refered to as the host and the
out the window visuals or scene graph program is run on another
usually refered to as an Image Generator. CIGI is the interface
between the 'host' and the 'image generator'. I hope this clears
