DNS Server for Thomson Reuters Eikon Hosted Internet
All Thomson Reuters Hosted deployment servers are able to resolve IP address through local Internet Service Provider (ISP) DNS. The following domains must be selected forwarding DNS thomsonreuters.com cp.thomsonreuters.net reuters.com trading.thomsonreuters.net DNS Server Internet ISP Internet ISP Internet ISP Internet ISP Thomson Reuters Service Thomson Reuters Eikon Thomson Reuters Eikon Customer Zone and URL links in some news content, Trading Services, SDN, etc Trading Service, System Test

Additional Internet domains/services are listed in Chapter 5. Please be aware that Thomson Reuters will not divulge IP address information in any circumstances. Doing so prevent us from changing IP addresses as and when needed without notification period and these IP addresses may not always be under our direct control. Clients should always use DNS.

Proxy Server: If clients implement an Internet proxy server on site, it is necessary that the proxy be able to solve the following domain correctly. Internet Explorer object will forward all request to the proxy server without resolving the domain name service.

Proxy and Firewall Policy
See information in Chapter 5.

Authentication Proxy
Thomson Reuters Eikon has been qualified with the following authenticated proxies:
PROXY AUTHENTICATION METHOD

Apache

Basic

Apache

DIGEST

Squid

Basic

Squid

DIGEST

MS ISA

NTLM

It is advisable to allow Reuters Insider URL to bypass NTLM authentication in Proxy, as we have experienced authentication timeouts with Flash-based applications with a number of clients when NTLM authentication is enabled.

Web Proxy Auto-Discovery Protocol (WPAD)
Thomson Reuters Eikon does not support the Web Proxy Auto-Discovery Protocol (WPAD). The Update Agent cannot connect to the dedicated proxy server indicated in the WPAD file; as a consequence, users are not able to install Thomson Reuters Eikon or upgrade to the latest Service Releases or Hotfixes. The issue is under investigation by our development teams.

EXE Download Policy
Thomson Reuters Eikon installation package is an EXE Wrapper file (MSI/MSP file wrap inside EXE file). These files are virus checked and signed by Thomson Reuters before they are published on Thomson Reuters Update Service. Your site (workstation) firewall must be set-up to allow the download of these packages. Thomson Reuters is using this file format to guarantee best compression rates for the downloaded packages. Firewall has to ALLOW the following servers to download EXE file through http protocol:
DOMAIN DOWNLOAD

* *These domains require NGTX Service package. If you have the NGTX Service package, the DNS MUST forward to the Extranet DNS rather than Internet DNS. Additional Internet domains/services are listed in Chapter 5. It is recommended that client has Internet connection for Thomson Reuters Eikon in order to get full services. Please be aware that Thomson Reuters will not divulge IP address information in any circumstances. Doing so prevent us from changing IP addresses as and when needed without notification period and these IP addresses may not always be under our direct control. Clients should always use DNS.

DNS resource name lookup
You need to add a host record entry for Thomson Reuters Platform services into your local DNS servers with your local server IP address. The entry should be put in the same DNS suffixes that set up on the Advanced TCP/IP settings on the workstation. Servers Streaming Proxy TimeSeries Proxy DNS entry tr-streaming-proxy tr-timeseries-proxy

E.g. If the first DNS Suffix Search List of the client workstation is “xxx.company.com”, you have to add the “tr-timeseries-proxy” host record entry added to the xxx.company.com domain. Thus the workstation is able to resolve IP address of the local Streaming Proxy by lookup “tr-streaming-proxy” upon Thomson Reuters Eikon application start-up. However, this new DNS entry name can be changed in the Thomson Reuters User Profile in Administration Service to reflect the new DNS hostname. Please contact your TAM or DTS and make a request.

5.3 WEB PROXY AUTO-DISCOVERY PROTOCOL (WPAD)
Thomson Reuters Eikon does not support the Web Proxy Auto-Discovery Protocol (WPAD). The Update Agent cannot connect to the dedicated proxy server indicated in the WPAD file; as a consequence, users are not able to install Thomson Reuters Eikon or upgrade to the latest Service Releases or Hotfixes. The issue is under investigation by our development teams.

5.4 REUTERS INSIDER
Reuters Insider does not support delivery over Private Delivery connections because internet delivery offers greater scalability, is more cost effective for clients and it's not prudent for video streaming to share the same connection as time-critical data. Many proxy and enterprise network monitoring tools allow bandwidth management of video internet traffic and these can be used to control quality and quantity risks associated with the internet delivery method. Reuters Insider uses the Akamai Content Delivery Network (CDN), the 3 party service provider, to cache and distribute dynamic and static content through thousands of Edge servers. Due to the dynamic nature of the Akamai CDN, the user is dynamically directed to the Akamai Edge servers that offer the best performance. Therefore please allow content for Content-Type =”application/x-fcs” for Reuters Insider.
rd

NTLM Authentication
It is advisable to allow Reuters Insider to bypass NTLM authentication, as we have experienced authentication timeouts with Flash-based applications with a number of clients when NTLM authentication is enabled. For additional information, visit https://kb.bluecoat.com/index?page=content&id=KB3243&actp=LIST

Timeouts or Disconnections
If Reuters Insider video streams occasionally time out or disconnect and it does not appear to be an issue with your proxy, the problem might be caused by: A default setting in Internet Explorer versions 6 or 7 that limits the user to two concurrent connections to a server. As Reuters Insider is a feature rich multimedia platform, it sometimes requires more than two concurrent connections. This is a known limitation of these versions of Internet Explorer; the Microsoft article at the following URL explains how to increase this value: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/282402.

For security purposes, servers, Thomson Reuters Eikon package and Thomson Reuters Eikon Excel for Wealth Management package requires up to date certificates at installation, update and start-up. To ensure access to Thomson Reuters at all time, it is crucial that you validate the Certificate Management approach most appropriate to your network. With the SSL certificate, it is required to validate the status of the certificates used when performing authentication, signing or encryption operations. Failures to validate the certificates prevent the product working. The validation can be either CRL or OCSP based on the client Operating System. See more information in Appendix D. It is necessary the certificates be validated through Internet or Internal Certificate Infrastructure, Microsoft Online Responder, OCSP Proxy and etc., unless delegated to an internal certificate management system You have to ensure that the certificate validation process can be updated from both   *.geotrust.com *.verisign.com

APPENDIX D: CERTIFICATE REVOCATION CONCEPT
Public key infrastructure (PKI) consists of multiple components, including certificates, certificate revocation lists (CRL), and certification authorities (CA). ). In most cases, applications that depend on X.509 certificates, such as Secure/Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (S/MIME), Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), and smart cards, is required to validate the status of the certificates used when performing authentication, signing, or encryption operations. The certificate status and revocation checking is the process by which the validity of certificates is verified based on two main categories: time and revocation status.  Time. Certificates are issued for a fixed period of time and considered valid as long as the expiration date of the certificate is not reached, unless revoked before that date.  Revocation status. Certificates can be revoked before their expiration date because of multiple reasons such as key compromise or suspension. Before performing any operation, applications often validate that the certificate was not revoked. Windows XP and Windows 2003 support only CRL. Windows Vista, Windows 7 and the Windows 2008 support both CRL and OCSP as a method of determining certificate status. The OCSP support includes both the client component as well as the Online Responder, which is the server component.

Certificate Revocation Checking
When an application performs a certificate evaluation, the validation is performed on all certificates in that certificate's chain. This includes every certificate from the end-entity certificate presented to the application to the root certificate. When the first certificate in the chain is validated, the following process takes place: 1. The certificate chaining engine attempts to build the chain for the certificate inspected by querying the local certificate store or by downloading from one of the URLs available in the inspected certificate's authority information access extensions. 2. For all certificate chains that end in a trusted root, all certificates in the chain are validated. This involves the following steps: - Verify that each certificate's signature is valid. - Verify that the current date and time fall within each certificate's validity period. - Verify that each certificate is not corrupt or malformed. 3. Each certificate in the certificate chain is checked for revocation status. Revocation checking is performed either by using a CRL or OCSP, based on the certificate configuration. After the validation check is completed, the certificate chaining engine returns the results of the validation check to the application that originated the validation request. The results will indicate if all certificates in the chain are valid, if the chain terminates at a non-trusted root CA, if any certificates in the chain are not valid, or if the revocation status for any of the certificates in the chain cannot be determined. For more information, see Certificate Revocation and Status Checking in http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=27081

CRL
A CRL is a file, created and signed by a CA that contains serial numbers of certificates that have been issued by that CA and are revoked. In addition to the serial number for the revoked certificates, the CRL also contains the revocation reason for each certificate and the time the certificate was revoked. Currently, two types of CRL exist: base CRL and delta CRL. Base CRL maintain a complete list of revoked certificates while delta CRL maintain only those certificates that have been revoked since the last publication of a base CRL. The major drawback of CRL is their potentially large size, which limits the scalability of the CRL approach. The large size adds significant bandwidth and storage burdens to the CA and relying party, and therefore limits the ability of the system to distribute the CRL. Bandwidth, storage space, and CA processing capacity

Thomson Reuters Eikon Networking Guide

can also be negatively affected if the publishing frequency gets too high. Numerous attempts have been made to solve the CRL size issue through the introduction of partitioned CRL, delta CRL, and indirect CRL. All these approaches have added complexity and cost to the system without providing an ideal solution to the underlying problem. Another drawback of CRL is latency; because the CRL publishing period is predefined, information in the CRL might be out of date until a new CRL or delta CRL is published.

OCSP
OCSP is a Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) that allows a relying party to submit a certificate status request to an OCSP responder. This returns a definitive, digitally signed response indicating the certificate status. The amount of data retrieved per request is constant regardless of the number of revoked certificates in the CA. Most OCSP responders get their data from published CRL and are therefore reliant on the publishing frequency of the CA. Some OCSP responders can, however, receive data directly from the CA's certificate status database and consequently provide near real-time status. Scalability is the major drawback of the OCSP approach. Since it is an online process and is designed to respond to single certificate status requests, it results in more server hits, requiring multiple and sometimes geographically dispersed servers to balance the load. The response signing and signature verification processes also take time, which can adversely affect the overall response time at the relying party. Finally, since the integrity of the signed response depends on the integrity of the OCSP responder's signing key, the validity of this key must also be verified after a response is validated by the client.

Troubleshooting
Thomson Reuters Eikon uses Microsoft Crypto API to check and download Certificate Revocation (CRL) from a CRL distribution point. The Crypto API internally uses the WinHTTP API to download the HTTP based URL for the CRL distribution point. If the proxy is not reachable or is incorrect, WinHTTP will not be able to download the CRL. The certificate revocation check will fail. Thomson Reuters Eikon does not create any secure connection to the platform which causes the program shutdown or get an error message. The logic to discover a Proxy server is as following: 1. Check the static proxy settings.
WINDOWS Windows XP Windows Vista, Windows 7 COMMAND Proxycfg.exe Netsh.exe winhttp show proxy

2. If there is no static proxy setting, API tries to retrieve the Internet Explorer setting on the following order. The following registry locations are queried based on the executing identity:
REGISTRY KEY Current User NETWORK SERVICE LOCAL SYSTEM LOCAL SERVICE HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-20\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-18\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-19\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings

Document Version 2.11 Date of issue: 27 March 2012

Any Other user

HKEY_USERS\<<SID of that user>> \Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ Internet Settings

3. If the Internet Explorer proxy settings are not present for the executing user or if the Internet Explorer settings as indicate in - Automatically detect settings - Use automatic configuration script The Crypto API will try to automatically discover a proxy for the CRL. This will either return specific proxy information or return 'no proxy' if the automatic proxy discovery fails or if the URL does not require a proxy. More information, see Microsoft KB 2623724 as in http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2623724

WinHTTP Proxy Configuration
The WinHTTP proxy configuration utility, proxycfg.exe, configures WinHTTP to access HTTP and HTTPS servers through a proxy server on Windows XP. An administrator can use the proxycfg.exe utility as part of the deployment and installation process of an application that uses WinHTTP. The administrator who runs proxycfg.exe must have local administrator privileges so that proxycfg.exe can update the registry of the local computer. WinHTTP proxy settings are per-machine, not per-user. For Windows Vista, Windows 2008 and Windows 7, use Netsh.exe winhttp instead of proxycfg.exe. Netsh.exe requires administrative rights to modify machine configuration.

Usage
The following examples show the syntax use for various commands in the proxycfg.exe utility.
COMMAND LINE Proxycfg Proxycfg –d Proxycfg –u Proxycfg –p proxy-server-list optional-by-pass-list DESCRIPTION Display the current WinHTTP proxy settings Set direct access Import proxy setting from current users Internet Explorer manual settings Specify one or more proxy server and optional list of hosts that should be accessed directly.

The following examples show the syntax use for various commands for Windows Vista and Windows Seven
COMMAND LINE Netsh winhttp show proxy Netsh winhttp reset proxy Netsh winhttp import proxy source=ie Netsh winhttp set proxy proxy-server bypass-list=“ optional-by-pass-list” Netsh winhttp set proxy proxy-server= ”proxy-server-list “ bypass-list=“ optional-by-pass-list” DESCRIPTION Display the current WinHTTP proxy settings Set direct access Import proxy setting from current users Internet Explorer manual settings Specify one proxy server and optional list of hosts that should be accessed directly.

PARAMETER Proxy-server-list

DESCRIPTION OF USE Proxy are list in a specific protocol as Windows XP: “protocol=http://proxy_name:port” Windows Vista and Seven: “protocol=proxyname:port;” where protocol is either http or https and proxy_name is the name of the proxy server.

Optional-bypass-list

The list contains host names or IP address that is locally known. This list can contain wildcards, "*", that cause the application to bypass the proxy server for addresses that fit the specified pattern. For example, both "*.microsoft.com" and "*.org" are acceptable wildcard patterns. Wildcard characters must be the left-most characters in the list, so "myserver.*" is not supported. To list multiple addresses and host names, separate them with blank spaces or semicolons in the proxy bypass string. If the "<local>" macro is specified, the function bypasses any host name that does not contain a period.
