The Service Control application provides the means for basic service monitoring and configuration:
- Start / stop the BMS Core Server service.
- Start / stop the BMS Web Manager service.
- Configure TCP ports for Web Manager and web visualization access.
Installation and start
The application is installed to be started automatically after login and will then reside in the notification area of the Windows task bar.

Double click the icon in the task bar to open the Service Control and raise the configuration window:
