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