TradeStation and Virus Protection, Proxies, Firewalls, etc.

Post by ted »

TradeStation Support had some useful info on how to configure virus software. This helped us recently and so we are posting it in case it might help others.

Here is a list of programs that rules have to be set up for and I it is attached here. Traders generally have 2 areas of their virus software that need configuration and the first is the scanner or depending on the program, scanners. If using Norton , there are two. The second that has to be done is make rules for each of the 17 programs making sure they have complete access to the internet.

Hope this helps some folks,

You should provide this information to your network administrator if you have trouble either downloading the program or connecting to the service to get data.

Sometimes proxy servers or firewalls will block certain ports or addresses. To make sure that this is not occurring, see if you can make a Telnet connection to and from inside your proxy. You should make sure that the Telnet connection is not immediately dropped after connection. The timeout settings of your proxy may have to be adjusted so that the connection will not be dropped immediately.

Thank you for choosing TradeStation and have a great day!
