Under UNIX and WindowsNT you start and stop the SAP Gateway together with the R/3 System.

For further details, see R/3 System Administration in the following documentation:

Separate Gateway on UNIX

To start a SAP Gateway installed separately on a UNIX machine, you specify a start profile:
gwrd -force pf=<profile> &

To cancel, you must send the INT signal to the gateway read process.

Use the following command to obtain the process ID of the gateway read process:
ps -ef | grep gwrd

To kill the process, send the relevant INT signal to the process:
kill INT <pid>

Separate Gateway on WindowsNT

To start a SAP Gateway installed separately on a WindowsNT machine, use the SAP Service Manager. For further details, see R/3 System Administration in the documentation BC - Computing Center Management System.
