Configuring Order and Fill Server Connections
Users must populate the hostinfo.cfg file with the exchange-provided connection information as listed in the section below.
Example Hostinfo.cfg [OrderSession_X] section
To aid in routing messages and enhance customer support, eSpeed Gateways include a [Location] section that allows users to set the location of the Order Server. The gateway forwards the location information to the exchange as FIX Tag 142 (SenderLocationID) and echoed in messages from the exchange as FIX Tag 143 (TargetLocationID).
To provide the correct location information, users must populate the Country and StateProvince parameters with the respective 2-digit ISO code. For example, a trading desk whose eSpeed Gateways reside in Chicago would populate the [Location] section as shown below.
Example [Location] section
Both the Country and StateProvince parameters require a two digit code. The Order Server exits if the either the Country or StateProvince parameter does not contain a value or contains a value that is not two-digits in length.
