This topic describes how to start Altova LicenseServer (LicenseServer for short) and MapForce Server. You must have administrator (root) privileges to be able to start these programs, so you should run these commands as the root user. If you are logged in as root, you can leave out the sudo keyword from the commands listed below.
To correctly register and license MapForce Server with LicenseServer, LicenseServer must be running as a daemon. Start LicenseServer as a daemon with the following command:
sudo launchctl load /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.altova.LicenseServer.plist
If at any time you need to stop LicenseServer, replace load with unload in the above command:
sudo launchctl unload /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.altova.LicenseServer.plist
