Which one is correct?

the client connect to the server

Or

the client connects to the server

Since client is singular, I assume there should be s after the verb. But the following to makes connect to sounds familiar to me. Can you help m please?

    You have to use subject-verb agreement. As you said, if client is singular, it requires connects, which is singular. – Kman3 Jun 29 '18 at 2:03

The 'to' has nothing to do with subject verb agreement. The subject is singular, so you put 's' to the verb in this case.

The client connects to the server

and...

The clients connect to the server
