Note that the bridge to STELLAR is for Trade History only.


If the PC is already running STELLAR platform, then you simply have to set up a new connection in connection manager. If setting up on a different PC, then see the instructions below for setting up the STELLAR VPN client


STELLAR Connections are defined as follows:







Connection:        The name of the connection - just something you'll remember it by.

Description:        Optional - an additional description for the connection.

User Name:        The user name for this STELLAR Account.

Password:        The password for this STELLAR Account.

Days to load on startup: Number of days trade history to download when connecting - note up to 365 days history is now available. This may take a while to download as we throttled the requests to prevent thrashing Stellar servers. This download is a one time thing - after first load, it'll pick up from where it left off last time.

Auto Connect:        Check if you want this connection to connect automatically on start up

Auto Connect Sequence Number:        The order of connection. If you have more than one connection that will connect on startup, you can specify which one you want to connect first.

Use Stellar's naming convention for trade Symbols: Check this box if you want to use Stellar's naming for trade symbols
