    • As many of you are aware, we successfully completed Phase I conversion of our FTP and SFTP (secured FTP) system which targeted all firms using our legacy Internet connection architecture.
      Next we will address the conversion of all clearing member firm WAN (Leased Line) connections from the legacy to the new CME infrastructure.
      Clearing firms using the Legacy environment will be required to complete their conversion to the new server and, if necessary, convert from FTP to SFTP by April 2nd, 2012.
      The Legacy WAN environment includes the following addresses.
      • FTP:                          xxx.xxx.xxx.45
      • SFTP:                          xxx.xxx.xxx.46
      The new environment is in place and is reachable at the following addresses using SFTP: 
      • Production:                  xxx.xxx.xx.33
      • Disaster Recovery:     xxx.xxx.xx.33
      Please call Clearing Services at the number below for the new IP addresses.
      We recommend a non-production file name convention be used when sending a test file.
      Please be aware, firms that have not converted to the new SFTP IP address by April 2nd, 2012 will incur a monthly maintenance fee to use the old FTP server. Updated notices will follow to outline fees.
      We ask that each clearing member firm and any organization connecting FTP, to please provide us contact information (name, phone number and email) of the primary and back-up contacts for this conversion effort.  Once firms have tested and converted activity to the new destination, credentials will be removed from the legacy server.
      For further information or assistance please contact Clearing Services at (312) 207-2525 or
      Thank you.
