Loading Licenses

Overview

Note
  • A TT Gateway does not appear in Guardian until its license has been loaded.
  • You cannot load a license unless both the .dll and .LMT files reside in the same directory at the time of loading.

Before traders can use the TT Trading System, you must install the appropriate license file.

You load a license file in one of two ways, determined by whether or not the client already has at least one TT Gateway (of any type) on his network:

  • Load the license manually (if this is the first TT Gateway on your network)
  • Load the license in Guardian (if there is at least one TT Gateway on the client network)

If you replace a pre-existing license file with a newer one (i.e., you’ve added new components to your network such as X_TRADER® workstations), TT recommends that you verify that:

  • The filename of the new license matches the filename of the old license file. This name does not change.
  • The date of the license file is more recent than the old license file. The file carries the date on which TT created it, thus it will be newer than the old license file.

Loading a License Manually

To load a license manually:

  1. Ensure that no other TT Gateway resides on the client network.
  2. If the local Guard Server is running, shut it down.
  3. After installing a TT Gateway, place the disk with the license file into the appropriate drive on the server machine.
  4. Open Windows Explorer and navigate to <root drive>:ttdatfiles.
  5. Copy the .LMT, .dll, and license text files from the disk to <root drive>:ttdatfiles.
  6. On the Desktop, double-click Start TT Chron.
    • If you loaded the TT license file properly, a new Guard Server appears beneath the TT Gateway in Guardian’s tree of exchanges.
    • If you loaded the wrong license file, or if your license file does not properly list the TT Gateway, Guardian displays the TT Gateway beneath an exchange called TT Guardservers starting up.
