    aeproject node --windows --docker-ip

You can stop the node only by typing

aeproject node --stop

Similarly as the start commands you have few option to choose what you want to stop while doing your project.

If you have running instances of the node started from aeproject you could check information about the node with

aeproject node --info

There is optional parameter --v. To specify a specific version of node, you should type

aeproject node --v v5.3.0


Please note that in rare occurrences you may experience some delay, or even timeout exception while trying to run the node. This usually happens due to new version of the docker images which the docker is trying to pull, or possibly could happen after updating the aeproject verson with new node/compiler version. The files may be large or connection inconsistency may occur. Please try to run docker pull or simply retry to run aeproject node again.
