TT Gateway Files

Table Overview

The following list details files used by the TT Gateway. The files are divided into five types: binary (.exe), configuration (.cfg or .ini), license, log (.log) , and miscellaneous (.tbl, .bat, .txt, .dll, .ico, .pdb, and .dat).

Throughout the table, the following conventions are used:

  • Gwname is the exchange name you assigned the TT Gateway during its installation
  • IP is the IP address of the TT Gateway
  • mode is either PROD (if the mode of the TT Gateway is set for production) or SIM (if the mode is set for simulation).
  • DD is the two-digit day, MM is the two-digit month, and YYYY is the four-digit year.
  • Membr is the five-digit member ID of a trader, Grp is the three-digit group ID of a trader, and Trd is the three-digit trader ID of a trader.
  • * is a wildcard and signifies any variable type.
  • X signifies <root drive>.
  • Several filenames are very verbose. These names wrap around in their cells.
