Note! GpsGate Splitter was formerly known as GpsGate Client
Run GpsGate Splitter as a Service
This option works on Windows NT, 2000 and XP
The benefits of running GpsGate as a service is that no user needs to be logged into the computer for GpsGate to run. GpsGate will start up at boot and run in the background for all users that logs in.
Configure GpsGate service
When GpsGate is started as a service it cannot be configured. You need to start GpsGate as an EXE to configure it. After you are happy with its configuration you can start GpsGate as a service.
When running as a service GpsGate must be using shared settings. (“Share settings for all user accounts” must be selected in the Advanced tab of the Settings dialog.) For more info about shared settings read Where settings files are saved.
Also note that you can copy settings between different computers by copying the “Instances” folder.
Start GpsGate service
Make sure GpsGate is not running. Then select Start -> Programs -> Franson GpsGate 2.0 -> Run GpsGate as Service
Click on “Start Service” to activate GpsGate as a service and “Stop Service” to deactivate it.
The GpsGate service can also be managed from the Control Panel as all services can.
