* Logging level - logging level selected by the user ! The selected level has an impact on the level of awareness of the combined account (i.e., what exactly the contents of logs will describe; required for troubleshooting). 4 logging levels are available:

  • Debug
  • Info
  • Warning
  • Error


Plaza II Main Connection Settings:

Application name — the connection identifier, which consists of any combination of alphanumeric symbols (the Latin alphabet must be used). A unique identifier must be used for each created connection.


Use Order Log — this option enables the use of an Order Log to generate DOMs and to receive ticks.


FORTS DOM Depth— you need to select the appropriate depth for your Plaza II login depending on the connected Plaza II flow. This option is ignored if the use of an Order Log is enabled.


Only System Trades — display system trades only.


Router connection:

The Plaza II connector is connected to the Plaza II gateway router. Both integrated ATAS router and external one can be used.


If you do not plan to connect several applications to the same router, please use the integrated router.


Using the integrated router:


To use the integrated router, you must enable the appropriate option in Plaza II connection settings.


You will need to enter the username and the password from your Plaza II login credentials.


The integrated router is configured to connect to Moscow production servers by default. If you want to use other servers, edit server list accordingly. The first row in the table always corresponds to the “default” server; the other rowscorrespond to “direct” servers




Using the external router:

To use the external router, you must install the Plaza II gateway client distribution package.


Version for 32-bit operating systems: ftp://

ftp.micex.com/pub/FORTS/Plaza2/P2_CGate1.16.6_32_M1.exe

Version for 64-bit operating systems: ftp:// ftp.micex.com/pub/FORTS/Plaza2/P2_CGate1.16.6_64_M1.exe


The connection can be implementation both to a local router and to a remote one.


If you want to connect two or more apps to a single router, the Application name of each application must be unique.


When connecting to a router installed on a local machine, you must enter 127.0.0.1:4001 in the Address field.


When connecting to a router installed on a remote machine, you must enter the following:


Address: IP and port of the remote router

Password: password to be entered into the router settings on the remote machine.





Configuring the router on a remote computer.


When connecting to a router installed on another PC, you must make additional changes to the router settings. By default, the router's configuration is stored in client_router.ini located in the router installation directory. To be able to connect to the router remotely, you must specify application names that will be used for remote connection and the password for each of these names; to do that, you must add the following lines to the configuration file:


[AS:Local]


prefix_0=password


prefix_1=password


prefix_2=password


prefix_send=password


Because one application can simultaneously use several connections to the router, the application number is added to the name specified in the “Application name” field (connections are named as {prefix_number}); because of that, you must specify all application names together with their numbers in the router settings.


After the router configuration is complete, you must also specify a password for the ATAS connector, which was saved in the router configuration file. To specify the network password, please use the LocalPassword field.


Router configuration example:


There are two applications:


1) Application name: ATAS; password: 123



2) Application name: ATAS1; password: 1234


Router configuration will look like this:


[AS:Local]

ATAS_0=123

ATAS_1=123

ATAS_2=123

ATAS_3=123

ATAS_4=123

ATAS_send=123

ATAS1_0=1234

ATAS1_1=1234

ATAS1_2=1234

ATAS1_3=1234

ATAS1_4=1234
