Using Services.exe from the Command Line

You can use service.exe to control a service from the command line. The following table shows the commands that can be used for most services:

Command Description
list Lists all services available on the device.
start Starts a specific service.
stop Stops a specific service.
refresh Causes a service to refresh its configuration parameters.

To control a Telnet server using services.exe, type the following syntax at a command prompt:

s -d list
s services -d start tel0:
s services -d stop tel0:
s services -d refresh

The above commands will list all the available services on your device. Services.exe will start the Telnet server, then stop it, and then refresh its configuration parameters.

Adding the "-d" parameter will generate a debug output, instead of console output.
