Windows - use services

  1. Open run dialog : [win] + R
  2. Start services : type:
     services.msc
    	
  3. Scroll to "Filewave"

Version 8 and older

Older version of FileWave would install a server monitor app on OS X into /Applications/FileWave/ called Server Monitor.app
You can open this app to get status, you can also start and stop the server. Starting in Version 9 this app was no longer installed or updated. If you launch the old app it will still show the status of your server, but the command buttons will not work.
