Starting and Stopping FairCom EDGE

There are many options to start and stop FairCom EDGE depending on your platform.

Windows

Starting on Windows

  • Windows Service (recommended) - Select and start the service via the Windows service administrator.
  • As a Console or ToolTray Application - Simply double-click the executable in the c-treeEDGE-Installation-Folder\server directory.
  • From the command line - Start the application like any other Windows application by typing ctreeedge.exe.

Stopping on Windows

By default, FairCom EDGE requires an administrator password to initiate a server shutdown. The default (and permanent) administrator account is ADMIN with an initial default password of ADMIN.

Warning: For enhanced security, FairCom strongly recommends changing the default ADMIN password immediately after installation. Refer to the FairCom EDGE Administrator's Guide for details.

The Windows Service does not require the administrator password as it is assumed FairCom EDGE is running under administrative privileges.

  • FairCom EDGE Monitor - The monitor tool for Windows provides an option to stop the server.
  • Windows Service - If you installed the FairCom EDGE database to run as a Windows service, select and stop the service via the Windows service administrator.
  • ToolTray - If you ran FairCom EDGE as a ToolTray application, right-click on its ToolTray icon and select the appropriate shutdown option.
  • Console - If you ran FairCom EDGE in a console window, close the console application window via the menu or the standard Windows "X" in the upper corner.
  • ctstop - This scriptable command line based utility can be used to stop the FairCom EDGE database.
  • ctadmn - This interactive command-line administrator utility provides an option to stop the server.

    Note: When connecting via a network, be aware that the TCP/IP port should be allowed by any local firewalls. If you cannot connect with remote clients, you may need to specifically allow the FairCom EDGE database port.

Unix • Linux • Mac OSX

Unix, Linux, and Mac OS X users can use the included and preconfigured start scripts.
