Start and Stop the FileXpress Transfer Server

The FileXpress Transfer Server is the application server for the Transfer Client and also communicates with the FileXpress Gateway Administrator to authenticate FileXpress users. This server starts by default when you restart Windows. You can also use the Windows Services console to start and stop this service:

To start or stop the FileXpress Transfer Server service

  1. On the FileXpress Proxy computer, open the Windows Services console (Start > All Programs > Administrative Tools > Services).
  2. Select the service called "Attachmate FileXpress Transfer Server" and click start, stop, or restart.

Note: After the service has started, the FileXpress Transfer Client might not be immediately accessible. If you cannot connect to the Transfer Client, wait a minute or two and try again
