    • Clearing member firms using the Legacy WAN environment are required to complete the conversion to the new server and, if necessary, convert from FTP to SFTP by March 1st  2013.
      The Legacy WAN environment includes the following addresses:
      • FTP:                
      • SFTP:                
      The new environment is available at the following addresses using SFTP: 
      • Production:        
      • Disaster Recovery:
      We recommend the use of a non-production file name convention when sending a test file.
      Please be advised, that for clearing member firms that have not converted to the new SFTP IP address by March 1st, 2013, a $ 5,000 monthly maintenance fee will be assessed to use the old FTP server. 
      We request that each clearing member firm, and any other organization connecting via FTP, to please provide CME Clearing with 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 environment, credentials will be removed from the legacy server.
