Start LicenseServer, MapForce Server
This topic describes how to start Altova LicenseServer (LicenseServer for short) and MapForce Server. To be able to start these programs, you can use one of the following options: (i) you can be the root user and leave out the sudo keyword from the commands listed below (leaving out sudo is optional), or (ii) you can run the sudo command as a normal user with the corresponding permissions for sudo.
To correctly register and license MapForce Server with LicenseServer, LicenseServer must be running as a daemon on the network. Start LicenseServer as a daemon with the following command:
[≥ Debian 8], [≥ CentOS 7], [≥ Ubuntu 15]
sudo systemctl start licenseserver
If at any time you need to stop LicenseServer, replace start with stop in the command above. For example:
sudo systemctl stop licenseserver
