Hardware, third-party software and data communication requirements

Communication Channel Requirements

Normal software function of trade interfaces requires communication channels with a capacity adequate to external systems' needs (including exchanges).

To provide for communication between the client and the server, it is necessary to reserve an Internet channel of a capacity not less than 50 kbit/sec as per each user.

It is possible to use a virtual server.*

To establish an https-connection between a web2QUIK Module and a webQUIK workstation one of the two types of SSL certificate must be installed:

1. Trusted (recommended). This one may be bought from well-known certifying centers (DigiCert, GeoTrust, Thawte, etc.).

2. Self-signed. This one is not recommended when servicing external clients. When connecting a client to web2QUIK with a self-signed SSL certificate you will see a warning ‘This security certificate is not trusted!’

* — If a virtual server is used, in cases of complaints concerning performance ARQA retains the right to conclude that it may be impossible to diagnose causes.
