You must install PingAccess before configuring it. You can use the Install PingAccess procedure to install PingAccess from the command line.

Before performing this procedure, ensure that PingAccess runs normally by manually starting the server. For more information, see Run PingAccess for the First Time. If you installed PingAccess using the Windows installer, the service is installed and started automatically.

  1. Ensure you are signed on with full administrator privileges.
  2. Start a command prompt as an administrator.
  3. In the command prompt, go to the <PA_HOME>\sbin\windows directory and run the install-service.bat script.
  4. In Windows, go to Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services.
  5. From the list of available services, right-click PingAccess Service and select Start.

    You can change the default Start type setting in the Properties dialog.
