Configuring the MPF Server

Overview

To set up the MPF server, after installing the TT Gateway software normally, on the MPF server you must:

  • In ttchron.ini, disable the Fill, Order, and Key Server sections.

    If your ttchron.ini also has sections for Order Routers and the Commserver, disable these as well.

  • In Windows Services Manager, disable the Fill Server, Order Server, Key Server, and Commserver (if present).

Disabling Servers in ttchron.ini

To disable a server (i.e., the Order, Fill, or Key Server or the Commserver) or Order Routers, you must add the disabled parameter to the appropriate section in ttchron.ini.

To disable a server:

  1. Using a text editor, open ttchron.ini in <root drive>:ttconfig.
  2. Locate the appropriate server section:
    • For the Order Server: [win32-svc-exchange-flavorOrderServer]
    • For the Fill Server: [win32-svc-exchange-flavorFillServer]
    • For the Key Server: [win32-svc-ttkeyserver]
    • For Order Routers: [win32-server-exchange-flavorOrderRouter]
    • For the Commserver: [win32-commserver] and [win32‑svc‑exchange‑flavorcommserver]

    This exact list is dependent on the type of TT Gateway that you run.

  3. Add a new unique line in the section, and type: disabled

    Example Disabling the Order Server section:

    You use the following Order Server section:

    [win32-svc-CME-AOrderServer]

    schedule=S@11:45-22:00/6

    holidays=holidays-US1

    tags=CME-A

    After adding the disabled parameter, the section looks like the following:

    [win32-svc-CME-AOrderServer]

    schedule=S@11:45-22:00/6

    holidays=holidays-US1

    tags=CME-A

    disabled

    Tip

    An alternative method of disabling a ttchron.ini section is to comment it out by adding # in front of each line in the section.

  4. On the File menu, click Save.
  5. Close ttchron.ini.

Disabling TT Servers in Windows Services Manager

To disable a server (i.e., Order, Fill, or Key Server), you must stop and disable the server in the Services dialog box.

To turn-off a server:

  1. From the Start menu, point to Administrative Tools, and click Services.

    The Services window opens.

  2. In the Name column, locate the name of the service you need to disable.

    On the MPF Server, you must stop the following Services:

    • TT Key Server
    • TT Exchange-flavor Comm Server (if present)
    • TT Exchange-flavor Fill Server
    • TT Exchange-flavor Order Server
  3. Right-click the name of the service you need to disable.
  4. Click Properties.
  5. If the service is running, click Stop.
  6. In the Startup type list, click Disabled.
  7. Click OK.
  8. Repeat this step to this step for each service you need to disable.
  9. Close the Services window.
