TT FIX Adapter and TT User Setup Overview
You are viewing TT User Setup Version 7.17 and higher. For earlier versions, click here
As of TT User Setup 7.3.1, administrators in use TT User Setup rather than the FIX Adapter Configuration Tool (FACT) to manage both TT FIX Adapter Servers and FIX Adapter Clients. In a X_TRADER ASP environment, TT Administrators create drop copy or order routing FIX Adapter servers in TT User Setup, and Broker and Buy-side Administrators can add FIX Adapter clients and assign them to their company’s FIX Adapters.
TT FIX Adapter Server Users
You configure TT FIX Adapter Servers as users in TT User Setup. FIX Adapter Server users connect to the TT Gateways dynamically, so you do not need to assign Gateway Logins.
You can configure TT FIX Adapter Servers as either Order Routing TT FIX Adapters or Drop Copy TT FIX Adapters.
TT FIX Adapter Client Users
You configure FIX Adapter client users as users in TT User Setup and assign which TT FIX Adapters they may connect to.
