This utility shuts down a FairCom Server.

Passing the -auto switch to ctstop without specifying a ServerName, AdminPassword, or AdminID shuts down a FairCom Server with the defaults shown below:


The ctstop utility supports passing in ServerName, AdminPassword, and AdminID when the -auto switch is used.

The optional delay value is the number of seconds to wait before shutting down, with a default of no delay and a maximum of 60 seconds.

; User Id
; User Password
PASSWD <pass>

Use the -1 option to specify the name of the encrypted file. Use the -1 option to specify the name of the encrypted file.
