Schedules.Schedule1.StartTime = 0 0 8 * * 2-6
Schedules.Schedule1.ConnectTime =  0 0 9 * * 2-6

Code Block
languagebash
linenumberstrue
FixLayer.FixEngine.Session.TestFIXAcceptor.StartTime = 0 0 8 * * *
FixLayer.FixEngine.Session.TestFIXAcceptor.ConnectTime = 09:00
FixLayer.FixEngine.Session.TestFIXAcceptor.DisconnectTime = 0 58 23 * * *
FixLayer.FixEngine.Session.TestFIXAcceptor.TerminateTime = 23:59
