I cannot find anywhere info how to restart VisualVFP service from command prompt.

I can do that using Services but it is not quite nice easy to access,.

If you're talking about ActiveVFP being available - AVFP starts when IIS starts, even if you're logged off.

If you have to restart (ordinarily you don't) because you think something needs to be reset, you can:
1.) recycle the Application Pool in IIS Manager (usually DefaultAppPool). There probably is a simple command you can run for this on the command line but I don't know it off the top of my head.
2.) If you don't mind knocking the whole web server offline, you can always just run iisreset from the command line.
