Note that this tutorial is not suited for production environments. Its only purpose is to enable you to setup a local test environment.

In this guide you will learn how to set up a local test environment, provide and consume APIs on the FSC NLX network. We will use the FSC NLX Controller, a web interface for managing your NLX components.

The target audience is system operators.


The following components are part of the FSC NLX setup :


The Controller is at the heart of FSC NLX. It provides a web interface to manage FSC NLX. Your Inways and Outways use the Controller to retrieve their configuration.


The Manager is the contact point for your organization on the FSC NLX network. It negotiates Contracts.


The Inway functions as a gateway to the Services you offer to the FSC NLX network.


The Outway is used by your organization to access services on the FSC NLX network.

Transaction Log

The Transaction Log is a log of transactions made from and to your organization.

PostgreSQL Database

The configuration of your Inways, the Services you provide and Contracts are stored in a PostgreSQL database.

In sum

You've learned about all the components used by FSC NLX. Next up, lets setup our local environment.
