Alternatively you can navigate to the bin folder in a CMD prompt and invoke the run.bat file to start as application.
Navigate to the /bin directory and execute the ./run.sh file.
When the server is started, a command prompt window opens up showing startup information on several modules of NetFlow Analyzer. Once all the modules have been successfully created, the following message is displayed:
Please connect your client at http://localhost:8060
The default port is 8060 and it will be replaced by the port you have specified as the web server port during installation.
If you have chosen the Start as Service option during installation, NetFlow Analyzer will run as a service on Windows.
This starts NetFlow Analyzer as a service on Linux.
