NYSE Liffe Gateway

Hostinfo.cfg

Overview

Configure the Price and Order Server connections, as well as general TT Gateway behavior, in the hostinfo.cfg file. If you do not configure this file properly, the TT Gateway does not function correctly.

Configure hostinfo.cfg immediately after installing the TT Gateway, and again later, when you must make changes to network connectivity. The default hostinfo.cfg has the following sections:

  • [OrderServer]: globally configures the behavior for all Order Sessions on the TT Gateway.
  • [OrderServerSession_X]: Contains the configuration settings for each Order Session.
  • [PriceServer]: Contains the configuration settings for the Price Server.
Warning

If a parameter appears more than once in the same section of the hostinfo.cfg file, the server exits and logs a Server Exiting Due to Misconfiguration in the Hostinfo.cfg file message to the server’s logfile.
