The TT LME Gateway maps the Order Server parameters as illustrated in the following list:

  • TT LME Gateway distributes ExchangeIP as Connection IP.
  • TT LME Gateway distributes GatewayCompany as SenderCompID.

The [OrderServerSession] section configures the connection information for the FIX order session. The following table lists this section’s parameters and descriptions:
