Connectivity Overview

When can I connect?

Partners should connect to the DriveWealth provided URLs and not to DriveWealth’s Host IP. DW IP addresses are dynamic (subject to change) connecting to the Host IP may cause the connection to fail.

DriveWealth FIX servers reset sequence numbers after market close at the end of every week (typically Friday 4:30 - 5:30 EST). The FIX servers should be available for connection at all other times.

Note: In UAT sTunnel is not supported, so the process for integrating with DW via FIX will be via standard FIX connection. sTunnel may be used in PRODUCTION.



sTunnel is a proxy designed to add TLS encryption functionality to existing clients and servers without any changes in the programs' code. Its architecture is optimized for security, portability, and scalability (including load-balancing), making it suitable for large deployments.
