LME Gateway 7.18.1 adds support for native stop orders. This feature is enabled by default on new installs, however, in order to enable this feature on an upgrade, the following setting must be modified in aconfig:
GAL.Supported-Modification-Codes=32

Please note that LME requires that A2 House account is required for order entry on Base Metals.

As a result of this upgrade, customers must connect to different IP addresses or Fully Qualified Domain Names (FQDNs) for access to LME. For information on configuring DNS for LME, please see the TT LME Gateway Documentation.

For additional information on LMESelect 9 Connectivity, please contact the exchange for access to their LME Firewall and Routing Guide.

The FQDN, IPs, and ports have changed, and thus the hostinfo.cfg file will need to be changed:

FQDN: fsoe.select.prd.lmexgw.com
-or-
IP Address: 213.86.73.66

DC2
Port 7980
FQDN: fsmdf.select.prd.lmexgw.com

Customers must update the following section of the hostinfo.cfg with the new IP address and Port information provided above:

[OrderServerSession_1]

The following new parameters are required by LME after the upgrade to LMESelect 9.0 API, and need to be added to each OrderServerSession in the hostinfo.cfg file. Customers must either populate these fields, or provide their TAM with the necessary values:
## tag 10048 ISO Country Code of the person making the investment decision
InvestmentDecisionCountry=$country_code

## tag 10049 ISO Country Code of the person making the execution decision

## 1 = DEAL (Dealing on own account)
## 2 = MTCH (Matched principal)
## 3 = AOTC (Any other capacity)
TradingCapacity=$trading_capacity

## tag 448 PrtyID of the party role
ClientID=$client_id
CustomerAccount=$customer_account_type_id
