To successfully stop/start the Host daemon and process on Linux from a command line, run the following commands:

/etc/init.d/netophostd stop

/etc/init.d/netophostd start

These need to run as root so you may need to add sudo to the commands.

sudo /etc/init.d/netophostd stop

sudo /etc/init.d/netophostd start

This command runs a script that will apply necessary parameters when restarting the Netop Host daemon (netophostd) which is actually located in /usr/sbin.


If the commands are successful it should look like this:

username@computername:~$ /etc/init.d/netophostd stop * Stopping netophostd...                                     [ OK ]  * Stopping netophost...                                       [ OK ]  * Stopping netopshelld...                                     [ OK ] username@computername:~$ /etc/init.d/netophostd start * Starting netophostd...                                      [ OK ]  * Starting netopshelld...bind: Address already in use                                                                       [ OK ]username@computername:~$
