Typically you start and stop the Device Simulator through the Eclipse IDE GUI, as described in the Application Developer Guide in the Using the Device Simulator topic. However, you can also start and stop the Device Simulator manually.
To manually start and stop simulator device instances, perform these steps:
num_of_sim_instancesis a number from 1 to 10. Note that this number can be extended by editing the
/etc/ssh/sshd_configfile, as described in Increasing the Maximum Number of Simulated Devices.
To verify that the simulator devices are started, perform these steps:
netstat -an | grep 22
tcp 0 0 :::22 :::* LISTEN
ps -elf | grep sshd
