  • You can have multiple gateways installed on the host PC but they must be OF DIFFERENT TYPES.
  • Multiple gateways of the same controller type must be running on separate PCs (for example: you might have the Application Server, Database and PXL gateway on the host PC and then a second PXL gateway running on a second, remote PC.
  • Neutron Gateways cannot co-exist with other controller gateway types. When the Neutron gateway is enabled and installed ONLY Neutron controller types can be used on that system.
