How to stop keepuptodate?

hello,:D

During a blackout period i need to stop keepuptodate.
Is it possible to stop it in a noninteractive way?. I mean without doing ctrl-c

Another question:

If i well understand your doc. the only way to use keepuptodate with the synchronize "Adjust remote timestamp with DST(Windows)" option is to create a session, configure it and use it in a script such as:
open mysession
keepuptodate source_dir taget_dir

The "open [ sftp|ftp|scp:// ][ <user> [ :password ] @ ] <host> [ :<port> ]" command seems not to use it, am i right?
Thanks

What way? Like from another process?

Yes.

Sorry, i was not precise enough.
I launch keepuptodate on a server and when i close the session all the process attached to that session are closed and keepuptodate too...:(
So, i need to run keepuptodate as a background task or service and start or stop it like a windows service (i think this way is a better use of keepuptodate, maybe you could implement it to WinSCP).
Something like that:
winscp.com /command "keepuptodate source_dir traget_dir [srv_start|srv_stop]"

i will try if WinSCP works with svcany.exe

Thanks

There is no way to stop "keep up to date" extenally. But maybe svcany is able to terminate the process (with brute force).
