Once the EASA software has been installed, we need to start the EASA Server. Eventually we may need to stop the EASA Server as well.
We have two different ways of running an EASA Server: as a system 'service' or as a user 'application'.
Each has different Start and Stop methods.
By default EASA Server will be installed as a service and will start automatically when Windows starts up.
The EASA Server can be started or stopped using the 'Windows Services' tool.
Examine the Start→All Programs→EASA menu. At installation time two shortcuts were added:
If an EASA Server is running as an application, you should see a Command Prompt window entitled ‘EASA Server’.
If no EASA Server is running, then click on the Start EASA Server shortcut to start one.
If the EASA Server has been setup to run as a service, it should start automatically.
If it has been stopped, start it from a shell window by typing:
/sbin/service easa start
/sbin/service easa stop
