You can set up PingFederate to run in the background as a service on either Windows or Linux.


If you have installed PingFederate using one of the platform-specific installers, PingFederate has already been configured to run as a service and started automatically at the end of the installation process.


In the event that you want to stop the PingFederate service and start PingFederate manually, you must run the startup script under the same user account that the service uses.
