BrokerTec Gateway Documentation

Configuring the hostinfo.cfg File

Overview

You use the hostinfo.cfg to configure the connection parameters and behavior for the BrokerTec Gateway. The hostinfo.cfg file is located in <root directory>:TTConfig.

You must configure the hostinfo.cfg file at the time of installation, and again later, when any changes are made to network connectivity or a Trader’s logon IDs.

The default hostinfo.cfg on BrokerTec Gateways includes the following sections that contain parameters which affect the behavior of the BrokerTec Gateway:

  • [Member_<Member ID>] (7.17 or higher)
  • [Global] (7.16.x or lower)
  • [TTP]
  • [TTF]
  • [TTO_#]

Example: 7.16.x or lower

The following illustrates the contents of the hostinfo.cfg file:
