FileService is a utility application that can be used to remotely manage files in a Windows server-based folder via a RESTful Web Service API.
The service runs as a Windows Service and, by default, can be accessed at the following URL:
The service supports the following operations:
FileService is a Windows service written in Synergy .NET and as such requires that Synergy/DE core components are installed and configured on the system, and requires the dedicated use of one Synergy/DE Windows runtime license (RUN10).
You should verify that these prerequisites are met BEFORE attempting to run the FileService installation.
The easiest way to install file service on a Windows system is to download the installer from the GitHub repository and then execute it on the desired system or systems system.
Because FileService runs as a Windows service, you must be logged into a user account that has administrative rights for the system in order to successfully run the installation.
The installer makes the following changes to the system:
1.Installs the FileService application code in C:\Program Files (x86)\Synergex\FileService
2.Creates a start menu folder containing shortcuts to the documentation and uninstall.
3.Registers a windows service named FileService and sets the service to start automatically when the system boots.
4.Starts the service.
The service exposes the files in a single storage folder. By default that storage folder is C:\Users\Public\Documents\FileService.
You can change the location used by editing the configuration file C:\Program Files (x86)\Synergex\FileService\FileService.exe.config and specifying an alternate location via the StorageFolder setting.
The HTTP port that the server listens on can also be altered by changing the value of the HttpListenerPort setting.
<setting name="StorageFolder" serializeAs="String">
<setting name="HttpListenerPort" serializeAs="String">
If you make any changes to this file then you must stop and restart the service.
Starting and Stopping the Service
The Windows service may be started and stopped in several ways:
1.From the Services tab in Task Manager.
2.From the Services control panel (services.msc).
3.From the command line
net stop FileService
net start FileService
