Once you have established your trading environment, you should verify exchange connectivity using the method listed below.
Telnet and Ping Tests
You can verify exchange connectivity by telnet testing each of the IP addresses and ports that ASX distributes. You do not need to perform a ping test to verify connectivity.
To telnet the exchange:
- Open a command window.
- Type TELNET IP:PORT where IP is the connection IP address of the ASX Gateway and PORT is the Exchange’s default connection TCP Port 6980 (ALC) or 25xxx (ASX NET GiC).
- Repeat Step 2 with each connection address.
