MobiLink stop utility [mlstop]

Stops the MobiLink server on the local machine.


mlstop [ options ] [ server-name ]




Use this option to read in options from the specified environment variable or configuration file. If both exist with the same name, the environment variable is used. See Using configuration files.

If you want to protect passwords or other information in the configuration file, you can use the File Hiding utility to obfuscate the contents of the configuration file. See File Hiding utility (dbfhide).


Forced shutdown. Use if a hard shutdown does not work.


Hard shutdown. MobiLink stops all synchronizations and exits. Some remotes may report an error.


Quiet mode. Suppresses the banner.

-t time

Soft shutdown, with a hard shutdown done after the specified time. time is a number followed by D, H, M, or S (for days, hours, minutes and seconds). For example, -t 10m specifies that the server should be shut down in 10 minutes or when current synchronizations complete, whichever is sooner. D, H, M, and S are not case sensitive.


Waits for the MobiLink server to shut down before returning from the command.


Server-name    If the MobiLink server is started using the -zs option, it must be shut down by specifying the same server name.

See -zs option.


By default (if none of -f, -h or -t are specified), mlstop does a soft shutdown.
