Does 5MS work for CBOT_GBX?

for example to collect a snapshot including the symbol @FFG24 these both do not work:

test,E,50007,No file available.

Gary answered this for me via email. 5MS,8,30 was the winning answer:

Five MS works for all exchanges (if you are subscribed to them), But you have to enter the exchange group number, not the exchange number. From the SLM command:

LS,111,CBOT_GBX,Chicago Board Of Trade (GLOBEX),30,CBOT,

You need:


30 is the Exchange Group number. Change 8 to the symbol type you want (from SST command). The response will also return other "group 30" symbols,but the response includes the specific exchange number so you can filter them that way.

Yes, you should use the SLM command (send to port 9100) to know the exchange group number for the exchange you are interested in. Then use that number (not the exchange number at the beginning of the line) with the EDS/FDS/5MS commands.
