CME Gateway Documentation

Dual NIC Machine


For MDP connections, the CME Group recommends that you set up your TT Gateway on a dual-NIC machine with:

  • One NIC facing the customer’s local network
  • One or more NICs facing CME Group’s network that contains the MDP price distribution. For details on using multiple CME Group-facing NICs, refer to Configuring Multiple NIC Setup.

The CME Group recommends that you do not place your CME Gateway behind a firewall. For an illustration of this setup, refer to the following diagram called MDP Setup.
