NYSE Liffe Gateway Documentation

Configuring the Price Server Connection Optiq


When connecting to the exchange, the Price Server uses the information included in the EFS standing data files file to determine the correct IP address and port assignments for each product. For the Price API connection, the exchange does not require a unique ID or password.

Standing data, including multicast information, is now retrieved via the Euronext File Services (EFS) mechanism rather than via FTP as in previous versions. Customer administrators should request EFS sessions via the Euronext Optiq portal at https://connect2.euronext.com
Without access to EFS, the Price Server will not start up successfully. Gateways that will run the NYSE Liffe Price Server must have access to https://efs.euronext.com over the Internet.
This is configured in hostinfo.cfg as follows:

standingdatauser=obtained from exchange
standingdatapass=obtained from exchange

By default, TT Gateways install with all Price API related parameters set to the correct values for a single NIC machine to receive all market data. Users only need to add credentials for the exchange Standing Data FTP and the Replay servers in the [PriceServer] section of the hostinfo.cfg file.

In addition, you may use the [PriceServer] section to configure multiple network interface cards (NICs) in your trading environment as described in Configuring Multiple NIC Setup.
