As discussed in Installing MainBoss Service, you can start and stop MainBoss Service from a computer other than the one where MainBoss Service is installed, provided you have appropriate permissions and the MainBoss Service computer is appropriately configured. As a quick test for checking whether these conditions are met, follow these steps:

  1. Open a Command Prompt window by clicking the standard Windows Start button, clicking All Programs, expanding Accessories and clicking Command Prompt.
  2. Type sc, followed by " \\", followed by the name of the computer where MainBoss Service is running. After this type a space followed by query. For example, if the MainBoss Service computer is called MBServ, you would type

    sc \\MBServ query

If this works correctly, you'll get a list of all the services running on the MainBoss Service computer. This means you can start and stop services on that computer. Otherwise, you'll get an error message, indicating that conditions for starting and stopping services haven't been met.
