TSYSRetail Component

Properties   Methods   Events   Config Settings   Errors  

The TSYSRetail component is an advanced tool used to authorize credit cards in a Retail environment, where the customer is purchasing products or services in person. This component makes authorizing these types of transactions very easy. Supported Industry Types include retail stores, restaurants, grocery or food stores, Hotels, Auto Rental businesses and Passenger Transport.

Syntax

DPayments.DPaymentsSDK.Tsysretail

Remarks

This component allows for simple, direct, secure connection to the Vital/TSYS TLS/SSL gateway through a standard Internet connection. This component can be integrated into web pages or stand-alone Point Of Sale applications. Because all TLS/SSL communications are handled inside the component, any application or web page can be deployed without the need for expensive dedicated TLS/SSL servers.

The TSYSRetail component makes authorizing Card-Present transactions (where the customer's card is swiped through a card reader) very easy by adding an additional layer of abstraction between the programmer and the protocol. There is no need to deal with raw sockets, TLS/SSL handshakes, or data packet formatting. The steps to setting up the component and authorizing a transaction are outlined below:

First, set the merchant properties with setup information acquired from your member bank or processor. For instance:

component.MerchantBankId = "999995" '(BIN number) component.MerchantCategoryCode = "5999" component.MerchantName = "test merchant" component.MerchantNumber = "123456789012" component.MerchantCity = "Beverly Hills" component.MerchantState = "CA" component.MerchantStoreNumber = "5999" component.MerchantTerminalNumber = "1515" component.MerchantZip = "90210"

Next, set properties that contain details about the transaction. At the minimum, you must set a TransactionAmount, TransactionNumber, and IndustryType.

component.TransactionAmount = "100" component.TransactionNumber = 1 component.IndustryType = itRetail

Now, set the credit card properties. If available, you should use Track1 data. Some cards may have a corrupt or missing track1, and for these cards you may use track2 data. If the card is not readable, you may also manually enter the card number and expiration date. The following example shows a transaction sent with track1 data.

component.Card.MagneticStripe = "%B4444333322221111^SMITH/JOHN J ^031210100000033301000000008000000?"; component.Card.EntryDataSource = edsTrack1;

Finally, submit the transaction by calling the Authorize method.

When the component receives a response from the Vital/TSYS servers, the result of the authorization will be displayed in several Response properties. The Code indicates whether the transaction was approved, and the AVSResult indicates whether the customer's billing address on file with his credit card company matches the information presented in the CustomerAddress and CustomerZip properties. The remaining properties provide additional information about the transaction.

Once an authorization request is approved, the money in the customer's account is blocked and tagged for the merchant. This transaction must go through the Batch Settlement process in order for the blocked money to be transferred to the merchant account. This is done by passing the XML aggregate returned from the GetDetailAggregate method to the TSYSSettle component. Usually, a Batch Settlement of all authorized transactions is done at the end of each business day.

Card Property (TSYSRetail Component)

Contains the customer's credit card information.

Syntax

public CCCard Card { get; set; }
Public Property Card As CCCard

Remarks

This must be set to an instance of the CCCard type, which will contain information about the credit card to be charged. This may include a MagneticStripe for swiped cards, or a Number, ExpMonth, and ExpYear for manually entered cards. (EntryDataSource indicates which set of properties will be used). See the CCCard type for more information.

This property is not available at design time.

Please refer to the CCCard type for a complete list of fields.

CardPresent Property (TSYSRetail Component)

Indicates whether the current transaction is a card present transaction.

Syntax

public bool CardPresent { get; set; }
Public Property CardPresent As Boolean

Default Value

True

Remarks

By default, this component handles only retail card-present transactions. However, there are times at which a retail merchant may need to make a card-not-present transaction. For instance, hotel reservations, pre-orders, and the like. By setting this property to False a merchant may submit a card-not-present transaction. However, merchants that deal primarily in card-not-present transactions (either over the Internet or over the telephone) should use the TSYSECommerce component instead.

CustomerAddress Property (TSYSRetail Component)

The customer's billing address.

Syntax

public string CustomerAddress { get; set; }
Public Property CustomerAddress As String

Default Value

""

Remarks

This field is used as part of the Address Verification Service (AVS) and contains the customer's street address as it appears on their monthly statement. Only the street number, street name, and apartment number are required in this field. City and state are not included, and the zip code is set in the CustomerZip property.

This property is an alphanumeric field. Due to concerns with International addresses and changing specifications, the component does not do any processing on the address. The address will be included in the authorization request exactly as you set it.

Per TSYS specs, the following rules apply:

  • In the address, numbers are not spelled out. "First Street" becomes "1ST Street," "Second" becomes "2ND," and so on.
  • There must be a (space) between two consecutive data elements that are only numeric.
In order to maximize the address information included in the request, it is suggested that you strip out the spaces (when possible) and punctuations before setting the property.

Note the following examples:

  • "1234 56th Street" is equivalent to: "1234 56Street"
  • "1234 56th Street" is NOT equivalent to: "123456Street" //do not strip all spaces between two numbers
  • "1391 ELM STREET" is equivalent to: "1391ELMSTREET"
  • "P.O. BOX 24356" is equivalent to: "POBOX24356"

The length of this property is 19 characters, and any string longer than this throws an exception. If the customer's address is much greater than the length of this field, it is admissible to include only the street number in this field.

CustomerZip Property (TSYSRetail Component)

Customer's zip code (or postal code if outside of the USA).

Syntax

public string CustomerZip { get; set; }
Public Property CustomerZip As String

Default Value

""

Remarks

This field is used as part of the Address Verification Service (AVS). If the customer resides within the United States, this field should contain the five or nine digit zip code as it appears on the customer's monthly statement. If the customer's billing address is outside of the United States, this field should contain the customer's postal code.

This field is an alphanumeric field with a maximum length of nine characters. Spaces and dashes are automatically stripped when the property is set.

This property is only valid for the Hotel IndustryType and will be ignored for all other industries.

RentalDuration Property (TSYSRetail Component)

Duration of an auto rental or hotel stay.

Syntax

public int RentalDuration { get; set; }
Public Property RentalDuration As Integer

Default Value

1

Remarks

This property indicates the anticipated length of a hotel stay or auto rental. This field must be in the range of 1 to 99, and should be set to 1 for no-show authorizations. For advanced lodging deposits and auto rental pre-pays, this property should reflect the number of days being paid for in the advanced payment.

Response Property (TSYSRetail Component)

Contains the response to an authorization request.

Syntax

public TSYSResponse Response { get; }
Public ReadOnly Property Response As TSYSResponse

Remarks

This property will contain the response returned from the TSYS server. It should be inspected (and logged) after an authorization to determine if the transaction was approved. The TSYSResponse type contains the following fields:

This property is read-only.

Please refer to the TSYSResponse type for a complete list of fields.

SSLAcceptServerCert Property (TSYSRetail Component)

Instructs the component to unconditionally accept the server certificate that matches the supplied certificate.

Syntax

public Certificate SSLAcceptServerCert { get; set; }
Public Property SSLAcceptServerCert As Certificate

Remarks

If it finds any issues with the certificate presented by the server, the component will normally terminate the connection with an error.

You may override this behavior by supplying a value for SSLAcceptServerCert. If the certificate supplied in SSLAcceptServerCert is the same as the certificate presented by the server, then the server certificate is accepted unconditionally, and the connection will continue normally.

Please note that this functionality is provided only for cases where you otherwise know that you are communicating with the right server. If used improperly, this property may create a security breach. Use it at your own risk.

Please refer to the Certificate type for a complete list of fields.

SSLCert Property (TSYSRetail Component)

The certificate to be used during SSL negotiation.

Syntax

public Certificate SSLCert { get; set; }
Public Property SSLCert As Certificate

Remarks

The digital certificate that the component will use during SSL negotiation. Set this property to a valid certificate before starting SSL negotiation. To set a certificate, you may set the Encoded field to the encoded certificate. To select a certificate, use the store and subject fields.

Please refer to the Certificate type for a complete list of fields.

SSLProvider Property (TSYSRetail Component)

This specifies the SSL/TLS implementation to use.

Syntax

public TsysretailSSLProviders SSLProvider { get; set; }

enum TsysretailSSLProviders { sslpAutomatic, sslpPlatform, sslpInternal }
Public Property SSLProvider As TsysretailSSLProviders

Enum TsysretailSSLProviders sslpAutomatic sslpPlatform sslpInternal End Enum

Default Value

0

Remarks

This property specifies the SSL/TLS implementation to use. In most cases the default value of 0 (Automatic) is recommended and should not be changed. When set to 0 (Automatic) the component will select whether to use the platform implementation or the internal implementation depending on the operating system as well as the TLS version being used.

Possible values are:

0 (sslpAutomatic - default)Automatically selects the appropriate implementation.
1 (sslpPlatform) Uses the platform/system implementation.
2 (sslpInternal) Uses the internal implementation.
Additional Notes

In most cases using the default value (Automatic) is recommended. The component will select a provider depending on the current platform.

When Automatic is selected, on Windows the component will use the platform implementation. On Linux/macOS the component will use the internal implementation. When TLS 1.3 is enabled via SSLEnabledProtocols the internal implementation is used on all platforms.

The .NET Standard library will always use the internal implementation on all platforms.

SSLServerCert Property (TSYSRetail Component)

The server certificate for the last established connection.

Syntax

public Certificate SSLServerCert { get; }
Public ReadOnly Property SSLServerCert As Certificate

Remarks

SSLServerCert contains the server certificate for the last established connection.

SSLServerCert is reset every time a new connection is attempted.

This property is read-only.

Please refer to the Certificate type for a complete list of fields.

Timeout Property (TSYSRetail Component)

A timeout for the component.

Syntax

public int Timeout { get; set; }
Public Property Timeout As Integer

Default Value

30

Remarks

If Timeout is set to a positive value, and an operation cannot be completed immediately, the component will retry the operation for a maximum of Timeout seconds.

The default value for Timeout is 30 (seconds).

TransactionAmount Property (TSYSRetail Component)

Purchase amount to be authorized.

Syntax

public string TransactionAmount { get; set; }
Public Property TransactionAmount As String

Default Value

""

Remarks

This field contains the transaction amount to be authorized. The transaction amount is to be presented with an implied decimal point. For example, US $10.00 must be represented as 1000, and $0.10 is likewise simply 10. The allowable number of significant digits as well as the positioning of any implied decimal point is dictated by the designated CurrencyCode. In the United States, the number of allowable significant digits is seven. Thus the maximum TransactionAmount is "9999999", yielding a US dollar amount of $99,999.99. This field may not contain a negative number.

TransactionNumber Property (TSYSRetail Component)

Sequence number of this transaction.

Syntax

public int TransactionNumber { get; set; }
Public Property TransactionNumber As Integer

Default Value

0

Remarks

This field contains a terminal-generated transaction sequence number to be submitted in all authorization request messages. This number is echoed back to the terminal in the TransactionNumber for the purpose of assisting in the matching of authorization request and response messages. This value must be in the range 0001 to 9999 and should be incremented on each authorization request message. This number should automatically increment from 9999 to 1. 0 is an invalid transaction number.

AuthenticateCard Method (TSYSRetail Component)

Determines only if a card has been lost or stolen.

Syntax

public void AuthenticateCard();
Public Sub AuthenticateCard()

Remarks

This method does not send an authorization, but instead it sends an authentication request. If successful the Code will be "85". If the card is stolen or otherwise not normal, the Code and Text will indicate such. You may send AVS (CustomerAddress and CustomerZip) as well as CVVData, and the AVSResult and CVVResult will be returned as normal.

Authorize Method (TSYSRetail Component)

Sends an authorization request.

Syntax

public void Authorize();
Public Sub Authorize()

Remarks

This method sends an authorization request to the Vital/TSYS transaction server. If the authorization request was successful, the Code property will contain "00" or "85".

An authorization blocks funds on the customer's credit card, but does not actually transfer funds. In order for funds to be transferred and the transaction completed, you must settle the transaction. To do this, you must pass an XML aggregate containing the results of the transaction to the Settlement component. For example:

TSYSRetail.Authorize(); TSYSSettle.DetailRecords.Add(new TSYSRecordType(TSYSRetail.GetDetailAggregate()));

Config Method (TSYSRetail Component)

Sets or retrieves a configuration setting.

Syntax

public string Config(string configurationString);
Public Function Config(ByVal ConfigurationString As String) As String

Remarks

Config is a generic method available in every component. It is used to set and retrieve configuration settings for the component.

These settings are similar in functionality to properties, but they are rarely used. In order to avoid "polluting" the property namespace of the component, access to these internal properties is provided through the Config method.

To set a configuration setting named PROPERTY, you must call Config("PROPERTY=VALUE"), where VALUE is the value of the setting expressed as a string. For boolean values, use the strings "True", "False", "0", "1", "Yes", or "No" (case does not matter).

To read (query) the value of a configuration setting, you must call Config("PROPERTY"). The value will be returned as a string.

GetDetailAggregate Method (TSYSRetail Component)

Returns an aggregate containing details of this transaction, which is then used for settlement.

Syntax

public string GetDetailAggregate();
Public Function GetDetailAggregate() As String

Remarks

This method returns an aggregate containing all of the required data to send a transaction to settlement. This aggregate must be passed to the TSYSSettle component's DetailAggregate array property in order to settle the transaction. If you wish to view or change any part of the aggregate (such as adding a gratuity or additional info for an Installment payment), you may use the TSYSDetailRecord component to do so.

Note: This method may only be called after a successful authorization. If the authorization was not successful the method throws an exception.

An example of how this method is used is shown below:

TSYSRetail.Authorize() TSYSSettle.DetailRecords.Add(new TSYSRecordType(TSYSRetail.GetDetailAggregate()));

Interrupt Method (TSYSRetail Component)

Interrupts the current action.

Syntax

public void Interrupt();
Public Sub Interrupt()

Remarks

This method interrupts any processing that the component is currently executing.

Reset Method (TSYSRetail Component)

Clears all properties to their default values.

Syntax

public void Reset();
Public Sub Reset()

Remarks

This method clears all properties to their default values.

Connected Event (TSYSRetail Component)

Fired immediately after a connection completes (or fails).

End Class

Remarks

When InterleavedMode configuration setting is set to True the component will send interleaved transactions without blocking and waiting for a response. For every response that the component receives from TSYS the Response event will fire. TransactionId parameter can be used to identify the transaction. ResponseCode and ResponseText can be used to determine if a transaction was approved or declined.

SSLServerAuthentication Event (TSYSRetail Component)

Fired after the server presents its certificate to the client.

Syntax

public event OnSSLServerAuthenticationHandler OnSSLServerAuthentication;

public delegate void OnSSLServerAuthenticationHandler(object sender, TsysretailSSLServerAuthenticationEventArgs e);

public class TsysretailSSLServerAuthenticationEventArgs : EventArgs {
  public string CertEncoded { get; }
public byte[] CertEncodedB { get; } public string CertSubject { get; } public string CertIssuer { get; } public string Status { get; } public bool Accept { get; set; } }
Public Event OnSSLServerAuthentication As OnSSLServerAuthenticationHandler

Public Delegate Sub OnSSLServerAuthenticationHandler(sender As Object, e As TsysretailSSLServerAuthenticationEventArgs)

Public Class TsysretailSSLServerAuthenticationEventArgs Inherits EventArgs
  Public ReadOnly Property CertEncoded As String
Public ReadOnly Property CertEncodedB As Byte() Public ReadOnly Property CertSubject As String Public ReadOnly Property CertIssuer As String Public ReadOnly Property Status As String Public Property Accept As Boolean End Class

Remarks

During this event, the client can decide whether or not to continue with the connection process. The Accept parameter is a recommendation on whether to continue or close the connection. This is just a suggestion: application software must use its own logic to determine whether or not to continue.

When Accept is False, Status shows why the verification failed (otherwise, Status contains the string OK). If it is decided to continue, you can override and accept the certificate by setting the Accept parameter to True.

SSLStatus Event (TSYSRetail Component)

Fired when secure connection progress messages are available.

Syntax

public event OnSSLStatusHandler OnSSLStatus;

public delegate void OnSSLStatusHandler(object sender, TsysretailSSLStatusEventArgs e);

public class TsysretailSSLStatusEventArgs : EventArgs {
  public string Message { get; }
}
Public Event OnSSLStatus As OnSSLStatusHandler

Public Delegate Sub OnSSLStatusHandler(sender As Object, e As TsysretailSSLStatusEventArgs)

Public Class TsysretailSSLStatusEventArgs Inherits EventArgs
  Public ReadOnly Property Message As String
End Class

Remarks

The event is fired for informational and logging purposes only. This event tracks the progress of the connection.

CCCard Type

Contains the customer's credit card information.

Remarks

This type contains the customer's credit card information. If you are processing transactions where the customer and his credit card are physically present, set the MagneticStripe field with the data read from the card reader. You may set either Track1 or Track2 data (but not both). You must also set the EntryDataSource to indicate which track is stored in the MagneticStripe field.

Example: Setting the Fields CCCard card = new CCCard(); card.MagneticStripe = "B4012000033330026^FDMS TEST CARD /VISA^090410054321000000000000000 150 A"; card.EntryDataSource = edsTrack1; Example: Using a Constructor CCCard card = new CCCard("B4012000033330026^FDMS TEST CARD /VISA^090410054321000000000000000 150 A", edsTrack1);

If you are processing a transaction where the credit card is not physically present (eCommerce, mail/order, etc) or if the magstripe on the back of the card cannot be read by the card reader, you must set the Number, ExpMonth, and ExpYear fields, and EntryDataSource must be set to one of the manually entered enumerations.

Example: Setting the Fields CCCard card = new CCCard(); card.Number = "4788250000028291"; card.ExpMonth = 12; card.ExpYear = 2010; card.EntryDataSource = edsManualEntryNoCardReader; Example: Using a Constructor CCCard card = new CCCard("4012000033330026", 04, 2009); Note that the constructor in the previous example automatically sets the EntryDataSource to edsManualEntryNoCardReader. If you wish to set any other value for the EntryDataSource, you must set it yourself before authorizing the transaction.

When authorizing a transaction, the fields used by the component are solely dependant on the value of EntryDataSource. If you set the Number, ExpMonth, and ExpYear fields, but EntryDataSource is set to edsTrack2, the component will look for MagneticStripe data when authorizing the transaction, and will throws an exception because none is present.

Fields

CardType
TCardTypes

Default Value: 0

Type of credit card being used in this transaction. This field contains the customer's credit card type. This is automatically computed after the Number is set, but it can also be changed manually. A list of valid card types is included below.

ctUnknown (0) Invalid or unknown prefix, card type not known.
ctVisa (1) Visa or Delta Card.
ctMasterCard (2) MasterCard.
ctAMEX (3) American Express Card.
ctDiscover (4) Discover Card.
ctDiners (5) Diners Club or Carte Blanche Card.
ctJCB (6) JCB Card.

CVVData
string

Default Value: ""

Three digit security code on back of card (optional).

This alphanumeric field contains the three digit Visa "Card Verification Value" (CVV), MasterCard "Card Verification Code" (CVC), or four-digit American Express "Card Identification Number" (CID). This value appears as additional characters embossed on the card signature line following the credit card account number on the back of the credit card. This is an optional field which can be used to determine if the customer is actually in possession of the credit card.

Even if the CVVData is incorrect, the transaction may still be authorized. It is up to the merchant to examine the ResponseCVVResult field and decide whether to honor the transaction or not.

Note: When set to a non-empty value, CVVPresence will be automatically set to cvpProvided. If set to empty string (""), CVVPresence will be automatically set to cvpNotProvided.

CVVPresence
CCCVVPresences

Default Value: 0

Indicates the presence of the card verification value.

This field is used to indicate the presence of CVVData.

The component will automatically set this value to cvpProvided when a CVVData value is specified. You can explicitly specify the CVVPresence indicator by setting this property.

Available values are:

  • cvpNotProvided (0)
  • cvpProvided (1)
  • cvpIllegible (2)
  • cvpNotOnCard (3)

ExpMonth
int

Default Value: 1

Expiration month of the credit card specified in Number.

This field contains the expiration date of the customer's credit card, and must be in the range 1 - 12.

ExpYear
int

Default Value: 2000

Expiration year of the credit card specified in Number.

This field contains the expiration date of the customer's credit card. This field must be in the range 0 - 99, or 2000 - 2099. Any date before the year 2000 or after 2099 cannot be specified.

IsEncrypted
bool

Default Value: False

Determines whether data set to the Number or MagneticStripe fields is validated.

By default, when the Number or MagneticStripe fields are set, the value will be validated and normalized. For instance, "4444-33332222 1111" will be normalized as "4444333322221111" and MagneticStripe data will be parsed for the track specified by EntryDataSource. However, any other non-numerical data entered will cause an exception to be thrown. It may be useful in some gateways to send other data in the Number or MagneticStripe fields, and this can be accomplished by setting IsEncrypted to true. However, please note that in doing so automatic calculation of the CardType may be affected, and the card number will not be verified.

MagneticStripe
string

Default Value: ""

Track data read off of the card's magnetic stripe.

If EntryDataSource is not one of the manually entered enumerations, then this field must be set with the track1 or track2 data from the magnetic stripe on the back of the customer's credit card. This includes everything after but not including the start sentinel (% or ;) and up to but not including the end sentinel (?) and LRC check character. You may only set this field with track 1 or track 2 data, and may not pass both. Use the EntryDataSource field to indicate which track you are sending.

The following example shows how to set the MagneticStripe and EntryDataSource fields if the data read off the card is "%B4788250000028291^TSYS^05121015432112345678?;4788250000028291=05121015432112345678?"

component.Card = new CCCard("B4788250000028291^TSYS^05121015432112345678", dsTrack1) or component.Card = new CCCard("4788250000028291=05121015432112345678", dsTrack2) or CCCardType Card = new CCCard() Card.MagneticStripe = "B4788250000028291^TSYS^05121015432112345678" Card.EntryDataSource = dsTrack1

Industry regulations do not allow merchants or processors to store track data in any form of persistent storage. Failure to abide by this regulation can result in significant fines and other penalties.

Number
string

Default Value: ""

Customer's credit card number for the transaction.

If you're sending the transaction with MagneticStripe data, this field should be left empty.

23 (cstPKCS11)The certificate is present on a physical security key accessible via a PKCS#11 interface.

To use a security key, the necessary data must first be collected using the CertMgr component. The ListStoreCertificates method may be called after setting CertStoreType to cstPKCS11, CertStorePassword to the PIN, and CertStore to the full path of the PKCS#11 DLL. The certificate information returned in the CertList event's CertEncoded parameter may be saved for later use.

When using a certificate, pass the previously saved security key information as the Store and set StorePassword to the PIN.

Code Example. SSH Authentication with Security Key: certmgr.CertStoreType = CertStoreTypes.cstPKCS11; certmgr.OnCertList += (s, e) => { secKeyBlob = e.CertEncoded; }; certmgr.CertStore = @"C:\Program Files\OpenSC Project\OpenSC\pkcs11\opensc-pkcs11.dll"; certmgr.CertStorePassword = "123456"; //PIN certmgr.ListStoreCertificates(); sftp.SSHCert = new Certificate(CertStoreTypes.cstPKCS11, secKeyBlob, "123456", "*"); sftp.SSHUser = "test"; sftp.SSHLogon("myhost", 22);

99 (cstAuto)The store type is automatically detected from the input data. This setting may be used with both public and private keys and can detect any of the supported formats automatically.

Subject
string

Default Value: ""

This is the subject of the certificate used for client authentication.

This field will be populated with the full subject of the loaded certificate. When loading a certificate the subject is used to locate the certificate in the store.

If an exact match is not found, the store is searched for subjects containing the value of the property.

If a match is still not found, the property is set to an empty string, and no certificate is selected.

The special value "*" picks a random certificate in the certificate store.

The certificate subject is a comma-separated list of distinguished name fields and values. For instance, "CN=www.server.com, OU=test, C=US, E=support@nsoftware.com". Common fields and their meanings are as follows:

FieldMeaning
CNCommon Name. This is commonly a hostname like www.server.com.
OOrganization

Used to identify a unique terminal within a merchant location.

This four digit field contains a number assigned by the signing member, processor, or merchant to identify a unique terminal within a merchant location. Because the terminal number submitted in the authorization request is echoed back to the terminal in the authorization response, this field may additionally be used in controller-based environments to assist in the matching and routing of authorization request and response messages at the point of concentration. This field must be right-justified and zero-filled.

TimeZone
string

Default Value: "705"

Specifies the GMT offset used to calculate the local time within the VisaNet system.

This filed contains a three digit code used to calculate the local time within the VisaNet authorization system. The differential is calculated by the signing member or processor, providing the standard local time zone differential from Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). The first digit specifies the direction of the differential and offset increment as well as whether daylight savings is observed. The last two digits specify the magnitude of the differential. For example, North Carolina would be "705", California would be "708", and Arizona would be "107" (daylight savings not observed).

TSYSResponse Type

Contains the response to the authorization.

Remarks

This type contains the results of a transaction made with the TSYSECommerce or TSYSRetail component. The fields contained by this type are listed below.

Fields

ApprovalCode
string (read-only)

Default Value: ""

Contains an authorization code when a transaction has been approved.

This six character field contains an authorization code when a transaction has been approved. If the Code returned indicates that the transaction has not been approved, then the contents of the field should be ignored. The ApprovalCode must be stored and submitted in the settlement data capture record.

AuthorizedAmount
string (read-only)

Default Value: ""

Amount actually used from the card (used when supporting partial redemptions).

The AuthorizedAmount represents the actual approved transaction amount when a transaction request is received from a client using the PartialRedemption option. If PartialAuthorization is set to True, then AuthorizedAmount will be the amount of the TransactionAmount that was actually covered by the remaining balance on the card when the requested authorization amount exceeds the available card balance.

For example, a card may have an available balance of $7.50, but the cardholder does not know this. Rather than submit a Balance Inquiry transaction followed by a Purchase transaction, the merchant can use the PartialAuthorization option. If a purchase for $10.00 is attempted on the card with a $7.50 balance, the system will respond with an approval, and the AuthorizedAmount will represent the approved amount of $7.50.In this case, the Code will also be "00" (Approval). The merchant must tender the difference between the requested TransactionAmount and the AuthorizedAmount using another form of payment. If the transaction is fully covered by the balance remaining on the FSA card (ie, the current available balance is greater than the TransactionAmount) then this field will be "0" or "".

If the card has a zero balance before submitting this transaction, it will be declined regardless of the value of PartialAuthorization.

A response code of "85" represents a successful card verification (when the TransactionType set to dcCardAuthentication). A response code of "10" indicates that the transaction was partially approved for a lesser amount. In such cases, the partially authorized amount can be retrieved via ResponseAuthorizedAmount config. All other response codes represent non-approved requests. Do NOT interpret all non-approved response codes as "DECLINED".

A list of valid result Codes are listed in the table of contents.

CommercialCardType
TSYSCommercialCardTypes (read-only)

Default Value: 0

Response field that indicates whether the card is a commercial card.

If you wish to support Corporate Purchasing Cards with Level II or Level III data, you should inspect the value of this field after a successful authorization. If the Vital/TSYS host indicates that the authorized card is a commercial card, you may use the TSYSLevel2 or TSYSLevel3 components to add the extra data required during settlement.

Config Settings (TSYSRetail Component)

The component accepts one or more of the following configuration settings. Configuration settings are similar in functionality to properties, but they are rarely used. In order to avoid "polluting" the property namespace of the component, access to these internal properties is provided through the Config method.

TSYSRetail Config Settings

AcceptanceDeviceType:   Identifies the type of device used to accept mobile Point of Sale (mPOS) transactions.

This 1-character configuration setting is used to identify the type of device used by the merchant for accepting mobile Point of Sale (mPOS) transactions. Valid values are:

Value Description
0 Dedicated mPOS Terminal with PCI compliant dongle (with or without key pad)
1 Off the Shelf Mobile Device
2 Dongle with software-based application that supports PIN entry on glass
3 Off the Shelf Mobile Device with software-based application that supports PIN entry on glass
M Mobile POS Add-On Hardware
T Tap on Mobile No Add-On Hardware
AccountDataSource:   Identifies the source of the customer card data entered.

This field is sent in the request based on the EntryDataSource value specified by default. However that value can be overridden by setting this config.

Valid values are:

Code Description
A Bar code/Payment code read
D Full magnetic stripe read and transmit, Track two
G Chip Card Read Data (CCPS)
H Full magnetic stripe read and transmit, Track one
P Manually keyed, Chip Card read capable terminal
Q Proximity payment device using track data rules (transmit only Track two to Sierra)
R Proximity payment device using EMV-Chip data rules
S Full magnetic stripe read (Track two only), Chip Card capable terminal
T Manually keyed, Track two capable
X Manually keyed, Track one capable
@ Manually keyed, terminal has no card reading capability
W Chip Card transaction processed as magnetic stripe due to the terminal application not having any EMV applications in common with the chip card.
Z Chip Card transaction processed as magnetic stripe from a chip capable terminal, due to card or terminal failure.

ACI:   Requested Authorization Characteristics Indicator (ACI).

By default the component automatically selects the correct ACI for the type of transaction being attempted. This configuration setting is for advanced users, and it is not recommended it be changed. That being said, this 1-character field contains the Requested ACI used to identify an authorization request as potentially qualifying for CPS (Custom Payment Services) and MasterCard Merit programs. If a merchant chooses not to participate in CPS, the ACI may be set to "N". The following table provides a summary of the codes currently supported by both Visa and MasterCard. Please note that not all of these ACI values are supported in Direct Marketing and Retail transactions.

NDevice is not CPS capable / MasterCard TIPS (Travel Industries Premiere Service).
YDevice is CPS capable.
PCPS Capable - Manually keyed hotel/lodging transaction or preferred customer authorization request for hotel, auto rental, and passenger transport industries.
ICPS capable - Incremental Authorization Request.
RRecurring or Installment payments / MasterCard SIIP (Recurring payment).

ActivateTerminal:   Authenticates a POS device with TSYS.

This is an action config which when called will authenticate a POS device with TSYS. Authentication is required when processing transactions using Voltage Encryption or Tokenization. An AuthenticationCode is required to be specified, as is Zip and/or ServicePhone, to perform authentication. After a POS device is successfully authenticated, GenKey will be populated.

AllowPartialAuths:   Indicates whether partial authorizations are to be supported.

When this setting is True, if the credit card being authorized does not contain sufficient funds to cover the TransactionAmount, the card will not be declined. Instead, the transaction will be authorized for a lesser amount. The customer must then use another form of payment to make up the remainder. The total amount authorized by TSYS will be returned in the ResponseAuthorizedAmount configuration setting. For instance, if the TransactionAmount is $100.00, but the card only has a $50.00 balance, the card is charged for $50.00, and the ResponseAuthorizedAmount will be "50.00". The merchant may then collect the remaining $50 in cash, check, credit card, or any other acceptable form of payment. This setting is False by default.

AmexAggregatorName:   Amex Payment Service Provider/Aggregator Name.

This field is used for American Express transactions that are submitted via an Aggregator, Payment Service Provider or Facilitator to identify the Aggregator's Name. The maximum length of this field is 20 characters. It must be upper-case and should not contain spaces.

AmexAirlinePassengerData:   Used by Merchants that are in the airline industry to submit information for Passenger Transport transactions.

This configuration setting takes a vertical bar (|) separated list of name-value pairs. The available field names and their applicable values can be found below. The fields can be set in any order and not all fields are required to be set (unless you wish to change their default values).

Code Example: TSYSECommerce.Config("AmexAirlinePassengerData=DepartureDate=20170601|PassengerName=FROST~JANE~M~MRS|CardMemberName=FROST~CHARLES~F~MR|Origin=ABC|Destination=DEF|NumberOfCities=4|RoutingCities=ABC/DEF/GHI/JKL|NumberOfAirlineCarriers=3|AirlineCarriers=AB/XY/BC|FareBasis=ABC123DEF456GHI789JKL012|NumberOfPassengers=1|ETicket=True|ReservationCode=ABCDE1234567890");

This 9-character field indicates the postal code of the Sub-Merchant location (not the Payment Facilitator location). This field must be included on all transactions where the merchant has a relationship with a Payment Facilitator. It is used for Visa, Mastercard, and Discover transactions.

PFSubMerchantState:   The Payment Facilitator Sub-Merchant State/Province Code.

This 2-character field indicates the state or province code of the Sub-Merchant location (not the Payment Facilitator location). If the Sub-Merchant is non-U.S. and non-Canadian, this field should be '00'. This field must be included on all Visa, Mastercard, and Discover transactions where the merchant has a relationship with a Payment Facilitator.

Port:   The port to which transactions are posted.

This is port that this component connects to on the server. The default value for TSYS is 5003 for the live server, and 5004 for the test server. The default live server values for Heartland is 22341 for Authorization and 22342 for Settlement. The Heartland test server values are 12341 for Authorization and 12342 for Settlement.

Note: Setting this configuration setting in TSYSDetailRecord component will not update the POSDataCode tag in the detail aggregate of the original transaction.

POSEnvironmentIndicator:   Provides additional information about the transaction for Visa.

This Visa only configuration setting is used to provide additional information about the transaction. This value should be set in the following scenarios with the respective values:

Value Description
C Card On File
I Installment Payment
R Recurring Payment
Note: If the merchant stores payment credential for the first time, the value in POSDataCode.CardInputMode should reflect the actual entry mode for the transaction (i.e. manual input, key entered).

If the merchant initiates a transaction using a stored payment credential, the value in POSDataCode.CardInputMode should be '7' for Credential on File transactions.

Processor:   Specifies the Processor you are connecting to.

This field allows you to specify the processor that you are connecting to (thus allowing the component to correctly generate the request and parse the response). The available values are:

0TSYS (default)
1Heartland

Note that when set, this property will set the Server and Port to the default values for the specified processor. Additionally, this config must be set prior to setting Card to ensure the card data is formatted correctly.

RequestToken:   Indicates whether to request a token for the specified card data sent in an Authorize request.

When set to 'True' prior to an Authorize request, a token will be requested for the specified Card data. Provided the authorization and token generation was successful, a token will be returned in the response and can be retrieved via Token. Additionally the status of the token will be returned via ResponseTokenStatus. The returned token can then be used to process future transactions without the use of Card data with the exception of the expiration details. The default value is 'False'.

NOTE: When using this request, verification and authorization of the card will be performed.

ResponseAvailableBalance:   Response Available Balance.

This field contains Response Available Balance returned in the authorization response text message (part of group G3v022 Additional Amounts - amount type 02).

ResponseCardholderVerification:   Verification results for cardholder identification data (extended AVS).

This response data is returned when SendExtendedAVS is set to 'True' and is only available for American Express and Discover cards. This data is arranged in order of 5 bytes, one for each result of a cardholder identification data element:

Byte Number Description
Byte 1 Billing ZIP Code
Byte 2 Billing Street Match Code
Byte 3 Billing Name Match Code
Byte 4 Telephone Number Match Code
Byte 5 E-mail Address Match Code

The possible values for each byte are:

Value Description
Y Data Matches
U Data Unchecked
N No Match
S Service not allowed
R Retry
' ' (Space) Data not sent

For Discover transactions, byte 3 will be populated with the following values:

Value Description
B No response due to blank input
K Unknown
P Not processed
M First Name and Last Name match
F First Name Matches, Last Name does not match
L First Name does not match, Last Name matches
N Nothing matches
W No data from Issuer/Authorization system
U Retry, system unable to process

ResponseCashOverAmount:   The Cash Over amount approved.

This configuration setting contains the cash over (cash back) amount of an authorized Discover card purchase transaction and will only be populated if a cash over amount was received in the authorization response.

Note: Cash Over amounts can be partially approved and thus ResponseCashOverAmount may not be the same as the original CashOverAmount value requested.

ResponseEMVData:   The EMV Data returned in an authorization response.

This configuration setting contains the EMV Data in TLV (tag-length-value) format. This field will only be populated if an EMV transaction was performed and EMV Data was received in the authorization response.

ResponseLedgerBalance:   Response Ledger Balance.

This field contains Response Ledger Balance returned in the authorization response text message (part of group G3v022 Additional Amounts - amount type 01).

ResponseMerchantAdviceCode:   The Merchant Advice Code returned by Mastercard MIP for declined CNP transactions.

Possible returned values are:

Value Description
01 New account information
02 Try again later
03 Do not try again for recurring payment transaction
04 Token requirements not fulfilled for this token type
21 Recurring payment cancellation
22 Merchant does not qualify for product code
ResponseStoreNumber:   Check this field against the original Merchant StoreNumber.

The value of this field is used to correctly match responses with transactions by comparing its value to that of the StoreNumber. This is particularly useful when making a multi-merchant or multi-store routing system. If the system that originally made the transaction receives a response where the ResponseStoreNumber is not identical to the StoreNumber the transaction should not be stored for batch settlement. This field is read-only.

ResponseTerminalNumber:   Check this field against the original Merchant TerminalNumber.

The value of this field is used to correctly match responses with transactions by comparing its value to that of TerminalNumber. This is particularly useful when making a multi-terminal routing system within a merchant location. If the terminal that originally made the transaction receives a response where the ResponseTerminalNumber is not identical to the TerminalNumber, the transaction should not be stored for batch settlement. This field is read-only.

ResponseTokenStatus:   The status of retrieval of the token.

This field will be populated after a token is requested via RetrieveToken or RequestToken. The applicable values are:

Value Description
0 Token retrieval was successful and is included.
1 Terminal not configured to receive a token.
2 Terminal was not authenticated.
3 System failure.
ResponseTransactionIntegrityClass:   A 2-character value returned in the response of MasterCard Credit transactions to identify the transaction integrity class.

This read-only configuration setting contains a 2-character value when returned in the response of MasterCard Credit transactions. This value encompasses the fundamental safety and security of credit transactions, including the assessment of both the validity of the card and the cardholder.

RetailDepartmentName:   Department name.

This field is used to identify the department name within the location where the transaction took place. The maximum length is 40 characters.

RetrieveToken:   Sends a Token Only request.

This is an action config which when called will send a token only request to the TSYS Host. Provided the request was successful, a token will be returned for the specified Card. The token can be retrieved via Token and the status of the token will be returned via ResponseTokenStatus. For this request, no card verification or authorization will be performed.

Retry:   Set this to retry a failed transaction.

If an authorization returns ambiguously or times out without receiving a response, you may send the same transaction over again with this Retry flag set to True. This will prevent you from double-charging your customers in the case of a communications error (only available for credit card transactions. Does not apply to Debit, Gift Card, or EBT transactions).

SendCommCardInd:   Indicates whether to send Commercial Card Request Indicator.

If set to True (default), the CommercialCardType field will indicate whether the credit card submitted for authorization is a Business, Corporate, or Purchasing Card (this is the default function). If False, the contents of the CommercialCardType property must be ignored.

SendExtendedAVS:   Specifies whether to send extended AVS data.

When set to 'True', AVS data will be sent in the extended AVS field for the transaction. ResponseCardholderVerification will contain the extended AVS verification results. When set to 'False' (default value), the CustomerAddress and CustomerZip values will be sent using the simple AVS data fields.

Server:   The server to which transactions are posted.

This is name of the server to which all transactions are posted. Do not use an IP address, use the actual name, as a server's IP address may change. The default (Live) TSYS server is "ssl2.vitalps.net", but you may use "ssltest.tsysacquiring.net" for testing. The default (Live) Heartland server is "txns.secureexchange.net", but you may use "test.txns.secureexchange.net" for testing. Note that there are several BankIds and Numbers that will always run in test mode regardless of whether you are using the live server. See the included demos for examples.

ServiceLocationCity:   Name of the city where the cardholder received the services.

This field contains the name of the city where the cardholder received the services, if it is different from the location identified by the acceptor city name. This value will be sent as part of group G3v089 in authorization and group ODG41 (Tag: "SLD") in settlement.

The maximum length for this field is 13 characters.

ServiceLocationCountryCode:   Country code where the cardholder received the services.

This field contains the code of the country where the cardholder received the services, if it is different from the location identified by the acceptor country code. This value will be sent as part of group G3v089 in authorization and group ODG41 (Tag: "SLD") in settlement.

The maximum length for this field is 3 characters.

ServiceLocationCountrySubdivision:   Region code that corresponds to the state, province, or other country subdivision.

This field contains the code of the country subdivision where the cardholder received the services, if it is different from the location identified by the acceptor country subdivision code. This value will be sent as part of group G3v089 in authorization and group ODG41 (Tag: "SLD") in settlement.

The maximum length for this field is 3 characters.

ServiceLocationPostalCode:   Postal code where the cardholder received the services.

This field contains the postal code of the country where the cardholder received the services, if it is different. This value will be sent as part of group G3v089 in authorization and group ODG41 (Tag: "SLD") in settlement.

The maximum length for this field is 10 characters.

SpecialConditionIndicator:   Describes selected special conditions at the POS.

This field describes selected special conditions at the point of sale.

Valid values are:

Value Description
7 Purchase of Cryptocurrency. The transaction is related to purchase of cryptocurrency.
8 Quasi-Cash. The transaction is for a product or item that is representative of actual cash such as money orders, traveler's checks, foreign currency, lottery tickets, or casino gaming chips.
9 Existing Debt Indicator. The transaction includes payment on an existing debt.

SurchargeAmount:   The transaction fee amount charged to the customer to account for acquirer-assessed surcharge.

This configuration setting is for informational purposes only and any surcharge amounts charged to the customer should be included in the TransactionAmount.

The format of this field is 'annnnnnnn' where 'a' is either 'D' for debit or 'C' for credit. 'nnnnnnnn' is the numeric fee amount with the decimal implied. For example: 'D00000150' is a $1.50 transaction fee amount debited to the cardholder's account.

Note: If an amount is only specified, the component will generate the format above by prepending a 'D' and the necessary number of 0's.

TLID:   Transaction Link Identifier.

The Transaction Link Identifier (TLID) is used to track the life cycle of activity occurring after the original transaction and other related transactions. The TLID will be returned by Mastercard in the authorization response message. The returned value will also be present in the aggregate returned from the GetDetailAggregate method and for all subsequent transactions that utilize the aggregate (such as reversals, incrementals, settlement) the value will be automatically included in the request. When not utilizing the aggregate, you may explicitly set this config with the TLID value that was saved when the original transaction was performed.

Token:   The token received from the TSYS host when a token request is sent.

This field will contain the token received from TSYS from either a RetrieveToken or RequestToken request. This field is also used to specify a token value, used in place of Card data, to be sent in an Authorize request. The token is formatted as a card number, with the last 4 digits preserved. Other characters in the number will be letters rather than numbers. Tokens are used as an added security measure to protect a customer's Card and may also help decrease PCI Compliance verification as storing credit card data is no longer needed.

TransactionStatus:   A 1-character value used to indicate the purpose or status of the request.

Use this 1-character configuration setting to indicate the purpose or status of the request.

The tables below provide the valid values for each card brand.

TsysETB:   The Encryption Transmission Block TSYS uses to decrypt encrypted data.

This field is used to specify the Base-64 encoded ETB (Encryption Transmission Block) used by TSYS to decrypt Voltage encrypted data. The value is retrieved from the POS device containing the Voltage encryption software. When specified, the transaction will be sent as a Voltage encrypted transaction. The encrypted card data will be specified as normal via the MagneticStripe or Number fields.

TCPClient Config Settings

CloseStreamAfterTransfer:   If true, the component will close the upload or download stream after the transfer.

This setting determines whether the input or output stream is closed after the transfer completes. When set to True (default), all streams will be closed after a transfer is completed. In order to keep streams open after the transfer of data, set this to False. the default value is True.

ConnectionTimeout:   Sets a separate timeout value for establishing a connection.

When set, this configuration setting allows you to specify a different timeout value for establishing a connection. Otherwise, the component will use Timeout for establishing a connection and transmitting/receiving data.

FirewallAutoDetect:   Tells the component whether or not to automatically detect and use firewall system settings, if available.

This configuration setting is provided for use by components that do not directly expose Firewall properties.

FirewallHost:   Name or IP address of firewall (optional).

If a FirewallHost is given, requested connections will be authenticated through the specified firewall when connecting.

If the FirewallHost setting is set to a Domain Name, a DNS request is initiated. Upon successful termination of the request, the FirewallHost setting is set to the corresponding address. If the search is not successful, an error is returned.

Note: This setting is provided for use by components that do not directly expose Firewall properties.

FirewallListener:   If true, the component binds to a SOCKS firewall as a server (TCPClient only).

This entry is for TCPClient only and does not work for other components that descend from TCPClient.

If this entry is set, the component acts as a server. RemoteHost and RemotePort are used to tell the SOCKS firewall in which address and port to listen to. The firewall rules may ignore RemoteHost, and it is recommended that RemoteHost be set to empty string in this case.

RemotePort is the port in which the firewall will listen to. If set to 0, the firewall will select a random port. The binding (address and port) is provided through the ConnectionStatus event.

The connection to the firewall is made by calling the Connect method.

FirewallPassword:   Password to be used if authentication is to be used when connecting through the firewall.

If FirewallHost is specified, the FirewallUser and FirewallPassword settings are used to connect and authenticate to the given firewall. If the authentication fails, the component throws an exception.

Note: This setting is provided for use by components that do not directly expose Firewall properties.

FirewallPort:   The TCP port for the FirewallHost;.

The FirewallPort is set automatically when FirewallType is set to a valid value.

Note: This configuration setting is provided for use by components that do not directly expose Firewall properties.

FirewallType:   Determines the type of firewall to connect through.

The appropriate values are as follows:

0No firewall (default setting).
1Connect through a tunneling proxy. FirewallPort is set to 80.
2Connect through a SOCKS4 Proxy. FirewallPort is set to 1080.
3Connect through a SOCKS5 Proxy. FirewallPort is set to 1080.
10Connect through a SOCKS4A Proxy. FirewallPort is set to 1080.

Note: This setting is provided for use by components that do not directly expose Firewall properties.

FirewallUser:   A user name if authentication is to be used connecting through a firewall.

If the FirewallHost is specified, the FirewallUser and FirewallPassword settings are used to connect and authenticate to the Firewall. If the authentication fails, the component throws an exception.

Note: This setting is provided for use by components that do not directly expose Firewall properties.

KeepAliveInterval:   The retry interval, in milliseconds, to be used when a TCP keep-alive packet is sent and no response is received.

When set, TCPKeepAlive will automatically be set to True. A TCP keep-alive packet will be sent after a period of inactivity as defined by KeepAliveTime. If no acknowledgment is received from the remote host, the keep-alive packet will be sent again. This configuration setting specifies the interval at which the successive keep-alive packets are sent in milliseconds. This system default if this value is not specified here is 1 second.

Note: This value is not applicable in macOS.

KeepAliveTime:   The inactivity time in milliseconds before a TCP keep-alive packet is sent.

When set, TCPKeepAlive will automatically be set to True. By default, the operating system will determine the time a connection is idle before a Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) keep-alive packet is sent. This system default if this value is not specified here is 2 hours. In many cases, a shorter interval is more useful. Set this value to the desired interval in milliseconds.

Linger:   When set to True, connections are terminated gracefully.

This property controls how a connection is closed. The default is True.

In the case that Linger is True (default), two scenarios determine how long the connection will linger. In the first, if LingerTime is 0 (default), the system will attempt to send pending data for a connection until the default IP timeout expires.

In the second scenario, if LingerTime is a positive value, the system will attempt to send pending data until the specified LingerTime is reached. If this attempt fails, then the system will reset the connection.

The default behavior (which is also the default mode for stream sockets) might result in a long delay in closing the connection. Although the component returns control immediately, the system could hold system resources until all pending data are sent (even after your application closes).

Setting this property to False forces an immediate disconnection. If you know that the other side has received all the data you sent (e.g., by a client acknowledgment), setting this property to False might be the appropriate course of action.

LingerTime:   Time in seconds to have the connection linger.

LingerTime is the time, in seconds, the socket connection will linger. This value is 0 by default, which means it will use the default IP timeout.

LocalHost:   The name of the local host through which connections are initiated or accepted.

The LocalHost setting contains the name of the local host as obtained by the gethostname() system call, or if the user has assigned an IP address, the value of that address.

In multi-homed hosts (machines with more than one IP interface) setting LocalHost to the value of an interface will make the component initiate connections (or accept in the case of server components) only through that interface.

If the component is connected, the LocalHost setting shows the IP address of the interface through which the connection is made in internet dotted format (aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd). In most cases, this is the address of the local host, except for multi-homed hosts (machines with more than one IP interface).

LocalPort:   The port in the local host where the component binds.

This must be set before a connection is attempted. It instructs the component to bind to a specific port (or communication endpoint) in the local machine.

Setting this to 0 (default) enables the system to choose a port at random. The chosen port will be shown by LocalPort after the connection is established.

LocalPort cannot be changed once a connection is made. Any attempt to set this when a connection is active will generate an error.

This; setting is useful when trying to connect to services that require a trusted port in the client side. An example is the remote shell (rsh) service in UNIX systems.

MaxLineLength:   The maximum amount of data to accumulate when no EOL is found.

MaxLineLength is the size of an internal buffer, which holds received data while waiting for an EOL string.

If an EOL string is found in the input stream before MaxLineLength bytes are received, the DataIn event is fired with the EOL parameter set to True, and the buffer is reset.

If no EOL is found, and MaxLineLength bytes are accumulated in the buffer, the DataIn event is fired with the EOL parameter set to False, and the buffer is reset.

The minimum value for MaxLineLength is 256 bytes. The default value is 2048 bytes.

MaxTransferRate:   The transfer rate limit in bytes per second.

This configuration setting can be used to throttle outbound TCP traffic. Set this to the number of bytes to be sent per second. By default, this is not set and there is no limit.

ProxyExceptionsList:   A semicolon separated list of hosts and IPs to bypass when using a proxy.

This configuration setting optionally specifies a semicolon-separated list of hostnames or IP addresses to bypass when a proxy is in use. When requests are made to hosts specified in this property, the proxy will not be used. For instance:

www.google.com;www.nsoftware.com

TCPKeepAlive:   Determines whether or not the keep alive socket option is enabled.

If set to True, the socket's keep-alive option is enabled and keep-alive packets will be sent periodically to maintain the connection. Set KeepAliveTime and KeepAliveInterval to configure the timing of the keep-alive packets.

Note: This value is not applicable in Java.

TcpNoDelay:   Whether or not to delay when sending packets.

When true, the socket will send all data that is ready to send at once. When false, the socket will send smaller buffered packets of data at small intervals. This is known as the Nagle algorithm.

By default, this config is set to false.

UseIPv6:   Whether to use IPv6.

When set to 0 (default), the component will use IPv4 exclusively. When set to 1, the component will use IPv6 exclusively. To instruct the component to prefer IPv6 addresses, but use IPv4 if IPv6 is not supported on the system, this setting should be set to 2. The default value is 0. Possible values are:

0 IPv4 Only
1 IPv6 Only
2 IPv6 with IPv4 fallback
UseNTLMv2:   Whether to use NTLM V2.

When authenticating with NTLM, this setting specifies whether NTLM V2 is used. By default this value is False and NTLM V1 will be used. Set this to True to use NTLM V2.

SSL Config Settings

CACertFilePaths:   The paths to CA certificate files when using Mono on Unix/Linux.

This setting specifies the paths on disk to CA certificate files when using Mono on Unix/Linux. It is not applicable in any other circumstances.

The value is formatted as a list of paths separated by semicolons. The component will check for the existence of each file in the order specified. When a file is found the CA certificates within the file will be loaded and used to determine the validity of server or client certificates.

The default value is:

/etc/ssl/ca-bundle.pem;/etc/pki/tls/certs/ca-bundle.crt;/etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt;/etc/pki/tls/cacert.pem

LogSSLPackets:   Controls whether SSL packets are logged when using the internal security API.

When SSLProvider is set to Internal, this setting controls whether SSL packets should be logged. By default, this setting is False, as it is only useful for debugging purposes.

When enabled, SSL packet logs are output using the SSLStatus event, which will fire each time an SSL packet is sent or received.

Enabling this setting has no effect if SSLProvider is set to Platform.

ReuseSSLSession:   Determines if the SSL session is reused.

If set to true, the component will reuse the context if and only if the following criteria are met:

  • The target host name is the same.
  • The system cache entry has not expired (default timeout is 10 hours).
  • The application process that calls the function is the same.
  • The logon session is the same.
  • The instance of the component is the same.

SSLCACerts:   A newline separated list of CA certificate to use during SSL client authentication.

This setting specifies one or more CA certificates to be included in the request when performing SSL client authentication. Some servers require the entire chain, including CA certificates, to be presented when performing SSL client authentication. The value of this setting is a newline (CrLf) separated list of certificates. For instance:

-----END CERTIFICATE-----

SSLCheckCRL:   Whether to check the Certificate Revocation List for the server certificate.

This setting specifies whether the component will check the Certificate Revocation List specified by the server certificate. If set to 1 or 2, the component will first obtain the list of CRL URLs from the server certificate's CRL distribution points extension. The component will then make HTTP requests to each CRL endpoint to check the validity of the server's certificate. If the certificate has been revoked or any other issues are found during validation the component throws an exception.

When set to 0 (default) the CRL check will not be performed by the component. When set to 1, it will attempt to perform the CRL check, but will continue without an error if the server's certificate does not support CRL. When set to 2, it will perform the CRL check and will throw an error if CRL is not supported.

This configuration setting is only supported in the Java, C#, and C++ editions. In the C++ edition, it is only supported on Windows operating systems.

SSLCheckOCSP:   Whether to use OCSP to check the status of the server certificate.

This setting specifies whether the component will use OCSP to check the validity of the server certificate. If set to 1 or 2, the component will first obtain the OCSP URL from the server certificate's OCSP extension. The component will then locate the issuing certificate and make an HTTP request to the OCSP endpoint to check the validity of the server's certificate. If the certificate has been revoked or any other issues are found during validation the component throws an exception.

When set to 0 (default) the component will not perform an OCSP check. When set to 1, it will attempt to perform the OCSP check, but will continue without an error if the server's certificate does not support OCSP. When set to 2, it will perform the OCSP check and will throw an error if OCSP is not supported.

This configuration setting is only supported in the Java, C#, and C++ editions. In the C++ edition, it is only supported on Windows operating systems.

SSLCipherStrength:   The minimum cipher strength used for bulk encryption.

This minimum cipher strength largely dependent on the security modules installed on the system. If the cipher strength specified is not supported, an error will be returned when connections are initiated.

Please note that this setting contains the minimum cipher strength requested from the security library. The actual cipher strength used for the connection is shown by the SSLStatus event.

Use this setting with caution. Requesting a lower cipher strength than necessary could potentially cause serious security vulnerabilities in your application.

When the provider is OpenSSL, SSLCipherStrength is currently not supported. This functionality is instead made available through the OpenSSLCipherList config setting.

SSLEnabledCipherSuites:   The cipher suite to be used in an SSL negotiation.

The enabled cipher suites to be used in SSL negotiation.

By default, the enabled cipher suites will include all available ciphers ("*").

The special value "*" means that the component will pick all of the supported cipher suites. If SSLEnabledCipherSuites is set to any other value, only the specified cipher suites will be considered.

Multiple cipher suites are separated by semicolons.

Example values when SSLProvider is set to Platform: obj.config("SSLEnabledCipherSuites=*"); obj.config("SSLEnabledCipherSuites=CALG_AES_256"); obj.config("SSLEnabledCipherSuites=CALG_AES_256;CALG_3DES"); Possible values when SSLProvider is set to Platform include:

When TLS 1.3 is negotiated (see SSLEnabledProtocols) only the following cipher suites are supported:

  • TLS_AES_256_GCM_SHA384
  • TLS_CHACHA20_POLY1305_SHA256
  • TLS_AES_128_GCM_SHA256

SSLEnabledCipherSuites is used together with SSLCipherStrength.

SSLEnabledProtocols:   Used to enable/disable the supported security protocols.

Used to enable/disable the supported security protocols.

Not all supported protocols are enabled by default (the value of this setting is 4032). If you want more granular control over the enabled protocols, you can set this property to the binary 'OR' of one or more of the following values:

TLS1.312288 (Hex 3000)
TLS1.23072 (Hex C00) (Default)
TLS1.1768 (Hex 300) (Default)
TLS1 192 (Hex C0) (Default)
SSL3 48 (Hex 30) [Platform Only]
SSL2 12 (Hex 0C) [Platform Only]

SSLEnabledProtocols - TLS 1.3 Notes

By default when TLS 1.3 is enabled the component will use the internal TLS implementation when the SSLProvider is set to Automatic for all editions.

In editions which are designed to run on Windows SSLProvider can be set to Platform to use the platform implementation instead of the internal implementation. When configured in this manner, please note that the platform provider is only supported on Windows 11 / Windows Server 2022 and up. The default internal provider is available on all platforms and is not restricted to any specific OS version.

If set to 1 (Platform provider) please be aware of the following notes:

  • The platform provider is only available on Windows 11 / Windows Server 2022 and up.
  • SSLEnabledCipherSuites and other similar SSL configuration settings are not supported.
  • If SSLEnabledProtocols includes both TLS 1.3 and TLS 1.2 the above restrictions are still applicable even if TLS 1.2 is negotiated. Enabling TLS 1.3 with the platform provider changes the implementation used for all TLS versions.

SSLEnabledProtocols: SSL2 and SSL3 Notes:

SSL 2.0 and 3.0 are not supported by the component when the SSLProvider is set to internal. To use SSL 2.0 or SSL 3.0, the platform security API must have the protocols enabled and SSLProvider needs to be set to platform.

SSLEnableRenegotiation:   Whether the renegotiation_info SSL extension is supported.

This setting specifies whether the renegotiation_info SSL extension will be used in the request when using the internal security API. This setting is true by default, but can be set to false to disable the extension.

This setting is only applicable when SSLProvider is set to Internal.

SSLIncludeCertChain:   Whether the entire certificate chain is included in the SSLServerAuthentication event.

This setting specifies whether the Encoded parameter of the SSLServerAuthentication event contains the full certificate chain. By default this value is False and only the leaf certificate will be present in the Encoded parameter of the SSLServerAuthentication event.

If set to True all certificates returned by the server will be present in the Encoded parameter of the SSLServerAuthentication event. This includes the leaf certificate, any intermediate certificate, and the root certificate.

Note: When SSLProvider is set to Internal this value is automatically set to true. This is needed for proper validation when using the internal provider.

SSLKeyLogFile:   The location of a file where per-session secrets are written for debugging purposes.

This setting optionally specifies the full path to a file on disk where per-session secrets are stored for debugging purposes.

When set, the component will save the session secrets in the same format as the SSLKEYLOGFILE environment variable functionality used by most major browsers and tools such as Chrome, Firefox, and cURL. This file can then be used in tools such as Wireshark to decrypt TLS traffice for debugging purposes. When writing to this file the component will only append, it will not overwrite previous values.

Note: This setting is only applicable when SSLProvider is set to Internal.

SSLNegotiatedCipher:   Returns the negotiated cipher suite.

Returns the cipher suite negotiated during the SSL handshake.

Note: For server components (e.g. TCPServer) this is a per-connection setting accessed by passing the ConnectionId. For example: server.Config("SSLNegotiatedCipher[connId]");

SSLNegotiatedCipherStrength:   Returns the negotiated cipher suite strength.

Returns the strength of the cipher suite negotiated during the SSL handshake.

Note: For server components (e.g.TCPServer) this is a per-connection setting accessed by passing the ConnectionId. For example: server.Config("SSLNegotiatedCipherStrength[connId]");

SSLNegotiatedCipherSuite:   Returns the negotiated cipher suite.

Returns the cipher suite negotiated during the SSL handshake represented as a single string.

Note: For server components (e.g. TCPServer) this is a per-connection setting accessed by passing the ConnectionId. For example: server.Config("SSLNegotiatedCipherSuite[connId]");

SSLNegotiatedKeyExchange:   Returns the negotiated key exchange algorithm.

Returns the key exchange algorithm negotiated during the SSL handshake.

Note: For server components (e.g. TCPServer) this is a per-connection setting accessed by passing the ConnectionId. For example: server.Config("SSLNegotiatedKeyExchange[connId]");

SSLNegotiatedKeyExchangeStrength:   Returns the negotiated key exchange algorithm strength.

Returns the strenghth of the key exchange algorithm negotiated during the SSL handshake.

Note: For server components (e.g. TCPServer) this is a per-connection setting accessed by passing the ConnectionId. For example: server.Config("SSLNegotiatedKeyExchangeStrength[connId]");

SSLNegotiatedVersion:   Returns the negotiated protocol version.

Returns the protocol version negotiated during the SSL handshake.

Note: For server components (e.g. TCPServer) this is a per-connection setting accessed by passing the ConnectionId. For example: server.Config("SSLNegotiatedVersion[connId]");

SSLSecurityFlags:   Flags that control certificate verification.

The following flags are defined (specified in hexadecimal notation). They can be or-ed together to exclude multiple conditions:

0x00000001Ignore time validity status of certificate.
0x00000002Ignore time validity status of CTL.
0x00000004Ignore non-nested certificate times.
0x00000010Allow unknown Certificate Authority.
0x00000020Ignore wrong certificate usage.
0x00000100Ignore unknown certificate revocation status.
0x00000200Ignore unknown CTL signer revocation status.
0x00000400Ignore unknown Certificate Authority revocation status.
0x00000800Ignore unknown Root revocation status.
0x00008000Allow test Root certificate.
0x00004000Trust test Root certificate.
0x80000000Ignore non-matching CN (certificate CN not-matching server name).

This functionality is currently not available in Java or when the provider is OpenSSL.

SSLServerCACerts:   A newline separated list of CA certificate to use during SSL server certificate validation.

This setting optionally specifies one or more CA certificates to be used when verifying the server certificate. When verifying the server's certificate the certificates trusted by the system will be used as part of the verification process. If the server's CA certificates are not installed to the trusted system store, they may be specified here so they are included when performing the verification process. This setting should only be set if the server's CA certificates are not already trusted on the system and cannot be installed to the trusted system store.

The value of this setting is a newline (CrLf) separated list of certificates. For instance:

-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
MIIEKzCCAxOgAwIBAgIRANTET4LIkxdH6P+CFIiHvTowDQYJKoZIhvcNAQELBQAw

d8q23djXZbVYiIfE9ebr4g3152BlVCHZ2GyPdjhIuLeH21VbT/dyEHHA
-----END CERTIFICATE-----

TLS12SignatureAlgorithms:   Defines the allowed TLS 1.2 signature algorithms when SSLProvider is set to Internal.

This setting specifies the allowed server certificate signature algorithms when SSLProvider is set to Internal and SSLEnabledProtocols is set to allow TLS 1.2.

When specified the component will verify that the server certificate signature algorithm is among the values specified in this setting. If the server certificate signature algorithm is unsupported the component throws an exception.

The format of this value is a comma separated list of hash-signature combinations. For instance: component.SSLProvider = TCPClientSSLProviders.sslpInternal; component.Config("SSLEnabledProtocols=3072"); //TLS 1.2 component.Config("TLS12SignatureAlgorithms=sha256-rsa,sha256-dsa,sha1-rsa,sha1-dsa"); The default value for this setting is sha512-ecdsa,sha512-rsa,sha512-dsa,sha384-ecdsa,sha384-rsa,sha384-dsa,sha256-ecdsa,sha256-rsa,sha256-dsa,sha224-ecdsa,sha224-rsa,sha224-dsa,sha1-ecdsa,sha1-rsa,sha1-dsa.

In order to not restrict the server's certificate signature algorithm, specify an empty string as the value for this setting, which will cause the signature_algorithms TLS 1.2 extension to not be sent.

TLS12SupportedGroups:   The supported groups for ECC.

This setting specifies a comma separated list of named groups used in TLS 1.2 for ECC.

The default value is ecdhe_secp256r1,ecdhe_secp384r1,ecdhe_secp521r1.

When using TLS 1.2 and SSLProvider is set to Internal, the values refer to the supported groups for ECC. The following values are supported:

  • "ecdhe_secp256r1" (default)
  • "ecdhe_secp384r1" (default)
  • "ecdhe_secp521r1" (default)

TLS13KeyShareGroups:   The groups for which to pregenerate key shares.

This setting specifies a comma separated list of named groups used in TLS 1.3 for key exchange. The groups specified here will have key share data pregenerated locally before establishing a connection. This can prevent an additional round trip during the handshake if the group is supported by the server.

The default value is set to balance common supported groups and the computational resources required to generate key shares. As a result only some groups are included by default in this setting.

Note: All supported groups can always be used during the handshake even if not listed here, but if a group is used which is not present in this list it will incur an additional round trip and time to generate the key share for that group.

In most cases this setting does not need to be modified. This should only be modified if there is a specific reason to do so.

The default value is ecdhe_x25519,ecdhe_secp256r1,ecdhe_secp384r1,ffdhe_2048,ffdhe_3072

The values are ordered from most preferred to least preferred. The following values are supported:

  • "ecdhe_x25519" (default)
  • "ecdhe_x448"
  • "ecdhe_secp256r1" (default)
  • "ecdhe_secp384r1" (default)
  • "ecdhe_secp521r1"
  • "ffdhe_2048" (default)
  • "ffdhe_3072" (default)
  • "ffdhe_4096"
  • "ffdhe_6144"
  • "ffdhe_8192"

TLS13SignatureAlgorithms:   The allowed certificate signature algorithms.

This setting holds a comma separated list of allowed signature algorithms. Possible values are:

  • "ed25519" (default)
  • "ed448" (default)
  • "ecdsa_secp256r1_sha256" (default)
  • "ecdsa_secp384r1_sha384" (default)
  • "ecdsa_secp521r1_sha512" (default)
  • "rsa_pkcs1_sha256" (default)
  • "rsa_pkcs1_sha384" (default)
  • "rsa_pkcs1_sha512" (default)
  • "rsa_pss_sha256" (default)
  • "rsa_pss_sha384" (default)
  • "rsa_pss_sha512" (default)
The default value is rsa_pss_sha256,rsa_pss_sha384,rsa_pss_sha512,rsa_pkcs1_sha256,rsa_pkcs1_sha384,rsa_pkcs1_sha512,ecdsa_secp256r1_sha256,ecdsa_secp384r1_sha384,ecdsa_secp521r1_sha512,ed25519,ed448. This setting is only applicable when SSLEnabledProtocols includes TLS 1.3.
TLS13SupportedGroups:   The supported groups for (EC)DHE key exchange.

This setting specifies a comma separated list of named groups used in TLS 1.3 for key exchange. This setting should only be modified if there is a specific reason to do so.

The default value is ecdhe_x25519,ecdhe_x448,ecdhe_secp256r1,ecdhe_secp384r1,ecdhe_secp521r1,ffdhe_2048,ffdhe_3072,ffdhe_4096,ffdhe_6144,ffdhe_8192

The values are ordered from most preferred to least preferred. The following values are supported:

  • "ecdhe_x25519" (default)
  • "ecdhe_x448" (default)
  • "ecdhe_secp256r1" (default)
  • "ecdhe_secp384r1" (default)
  • "ecdhe_secp521r1" (default)
  • "ffdhe_2048" (default)
  • "ffdhe_3072" (default)
  • "ffdhe_4096" (default)
  • "ffdhe_6144" (default)
  • "ffdhe_8192" (default)

Socket Config Settings

AbsoluteTimeout:   Determines whether timeouts are inactivity timeouts or absolute timeouts.

If AbsoluteTimeout is set to True, any method which does not complete within Timeout seconds will be aborted. By default, AbsoluteTimeout is False, and the timeout is an inactivity timeout.

Note: This option is not valid for UDP ports.

FirewallData:   Used to send extra data to the firewall.

When the firewall is a tunneling proxy, use this property to send custom (additional) headers to the firewall (e.g. headers for custom authentication schemes).

InBufferSize:   The size in bytes of the incoming queue of the socket.

This is the size of an internal queue in the TCP/IP stack. You can increase or decrease its size depending on the amount of data that you will be receiving. Increasing the value of the InBufferSize setting can provide significant improvements in performance in some cases.

Some TCP/IP implementations do not support variable buffer sizes. If that is the case, when the component is activated the InBufferSize reverts to its defined size. The same happens if you attempt to make it too large or too small.

OutBufferSize:   The size in bytes of the outgoing queue of the socket.

This is the size of an internal queue in the TCP/IP stack. You can increase or decrease its size depending on the amount of data that you will be sending. Increasing the value of the OutBufferSize setting can provide significant improvements in performance in some cases.

Some TCP/IP implementations do not support variable buffer sizes. If that is the case, when the component is activated the OutBufferSize reverts to its defined size. The same happens if you attempt to make it too large or too small.

Base Config Settings

BuildInfo:   Information about the product's build.

When queried, this setting will return a string containing information about the product's build.

GUIAvailable:   Whether or not a message loop is available for processing events.

In a GUI-based application, long-running blocking operations may cause the application to stop responding to input until the operation returns. The component will attempt to discover whether or not the application has a message loop and, if one is discovered, it will process events in that message loop during any such blocking operation.

In some non-GUI applications, an invalid message loop may be discovered that will result in errant behavior. In these cases, setting GUIAvailable to false will ensure that the component does not attempt to process external events.

LicenseInfo:   Information about the current license.

When queried, this setting will return a string containing information about the license this instance of a component is using. It will return the following information:

  • Product: The product the license is for.
  • Product Key: The key the license was generated from.
  • License Source: Where the license was found (e.g., RuntimeLicense, License File).
  • License Type: The type of license installed (e.g., Royalty Free, Single Server).
  • Last Valid Build: The last valid build number for which the license will work.
MaskSensitive:   Whether sensitive data is masked in log messages.

In certain circumstances it may be beneficial to mask sensitive data, like passwords, in log messages. Set this to true to mask sensitive data. The default is true.

This setting only works on these components: AS3Receiver, AS3Sender, Atom, Client(3DS), FTP, FTPServer, IMAP, OFTPClient, SSHClient, SCP, Server(3DS), Sexec, SFTP, SFTPServer, SSHServer, TCPClient, TCPServer.

UseInternalSecurityAPI:   Whether or not to use the system security libraries or an internal implementation.

When set to false, the component will use the system security libraries by default to perform cryptographic functions where applicable. In this case, calls to unmanaged code will be made. In certain environments, this is not desirable. To use a completely managed security implementation, set this setting to true.

Setting this configuration setting to true tells the component to use the internal implementation instead of using the system security libraries.

On Windows, this setting is set to false by default. On Linux/macOS, this setting is set to true by default.

If using the .NET Standard Library, this setting will be true on all platforms. The .NET Standard library does not support using the system security libraries.

Note: This setting is static. The value set is applicable to all components used in the application.

When this value is set, the product's system dynamic link library (DLL) is no longer required as a reference, as all unmanaged code is stored in that file.
