Configuring a Direct Connection
If you have a direct connection to ICE, TT recommends that you do not use Secure Sockets Layer protocol (SSL). Using SSL slightly decreases performance.
Before establishing a direct connection to the Exchange, you must work with the Exchange to complete the following:
- Obtain a unique User ID for each direct trader connecting to the Exchange.
- Obtain a unique set of connection information for the Price Server. This set includes an iMpact Streaming Price Feed connection IP address and port number.
- Obtain a unique set of connection information for the Order Server. This set includes a FIX Order connection IP address and port number.
- Obtain new TT FIX Order connection and iMpact Price connection IDs from the Exchange.
