Once the application library has been installed and the configuration files are populated it can be started by executing the following command line:

python -m dxlfiletransferservice <configuration-directory>

The <configuration-directory> argument must point to a directory containing the configuration files required for the application (see Configuration).

For example:

python -m dxlfiletransferservice config


The output from starting the service should appear similar to the following:
