Running the IcePatch2 Server

This page describes how to run the IcePatch2 server.

On this page:

Starting icepatch2server

Once you have run icepatch2calc on the data directory, you can start the icepatch2server:

$ icepatch2server .

The server expects the data directory as its single command-line argument. If you omit to specify the data directory, the server uses the setting of the IcePatch2.Directory property to determine the data directory.

You must also specify the endpoints at which the server listens for client requests, by setting the IcePatch2.Endpoints property.

icepatch2server Command Line Options

Regardless of whether you run the server under Windows or a Unix-like operating system, it provides the following options:

  • -h, --help
    Displays a help message.
  • -v, --version
    Displays a version number.

Additional command line options are supported, including those that allow the server to run as a Windows service or Unix daemon.
