Stopping the SafeLinx Server

Use any of the following methods to stop the SafeLinx Server:

  • From the SafeLinx Administrator, open the Resources page, right-click the SafeLinx Server, and then click Shutdown.
  • On Windows, open the Services snap-in (services.msc) of the Microsoft Management Console, right-click SafeLinx Server service (wgattachd) and then click Stop.
    You do not have to stop the SafeLinx Access Manager Service (wgmgrd) or SafeLinx Secure Access Manager Service (wgmgrsd) to stop the SafeLinx Server.
  • From a command line on the SafeLinx Server, type one of the following commands, depending on the operating system:
    • On Linux or Windows, type
      wgstop
    • On AIX®, type
      stopsrc -s wgated
You can check whether the SafeLinx Server is running, by viewing its status from the SafeLinx Administrator. Open the Resources panel, right-click the SafeLinx Server, and then click Properties. The Current state field on the Gateway page, indicates whether the SafeLinx Server is running or stopped.

On Windows, you can also check the status of the SafeLinx Server service from the Services snap-in (services.msc) of the Microsoft Management Console. Similarly, on Linux or AIX, you can view the status of the wgated process from the operating system's services monitor.

On Linux or AIX, you can type the following command and examine the output to verify whether the SafeLinx Server process (wgated) is running:
ps -ef |grep wgated
If the output shows that a process ID assigned to wgated, then the process is running.
