Starting and Stopping EFT Remotely

If you are logged in to EFT remotely, your username and password are passed on to the Windows System Services on the computer running EFT. The account you log on with must have administrative rights to make any changes to the Globalscape EFT service running on that computer.

When you stop the service, EFT breaks all existing connections and waits until all socket threads die. The service can terminate when Timer Event processing is still in progress. The triggering of Monitor Folder and Timer Event Rules occurs almost simultaneously and is controlled by the operating system, not by EFT. Refer to Event Rule Order of Execution for more information.

To start or stop EFT remotely

  1. In the administration interface, click Edit > Server Service Settings. The Server Service Settings dialog box appears.

  2. In the Connection area, select Administer remote computer.

  3. In the text box, type or paste the IP address of the server you want to administer.

  4. Click Connect to Service Manager.

  5. Click Start service (or Stop service) and close the Server Service Settings dialog box.
