Executing acuserve in Windows automatically launches the AcuServer Control Panel (ACP), a graphical-based administrative utility
based on AcuServer’s command-line requirements.
Note: To use the AcuServer Control Panel on Windows 2008 where UAC is turned on (as it is by default), any user must choose
Run as Administrator in order to use the various Acuserver utilities. UAC can be turned off, in which case the user must merely be a member of
the administrators group in order to fully operate AcuServer.
You can use the ACP to perform the same tasks that you would otherwise perform by issuing the acuserve command at the command
line. You can:
- Edit an access file (add, change, or delete user security information)
- Set and view current configuration settings for a running server
- View, unlock, and close open files and connections
- Install, start, stop, modify, or remove AcuServer services on any port
- Monitor a port for status and open files
Administrator Utilities and Functions describes how to perform AcuServer functions from the command line and the ACP. You can access the AcuServer documentation
from the ACP by clicking
Help or by pressing
