After executing this command, the folder opt contains the folder LANCOM-Wireless-ePaper-Server-1.73.0001.

sudo cp /opt/LANCOM-Wireless-ePaper-Server-1.73.0001/LANCOM-Wireless-ePaper-Server /etc/init.d
This allows you to control the LANCOM Wireless ePaper Server (e.g. manual start/stop) by means of the init.d.
sudo /etc/init.d/LANCOM-Wireless-ePaper-Server [start|stop|restart|status]
2.2) This command enables you to set up an automatic start of the the Wireless ePaper Server.
