Login / Logoff
Once a client has established a connection, they need to send the LogOn message. Metro will authenticate the client using their username and password. Once a client is logged on, it will begin receiving messages and it may now send messages to Metro.

Log On Acknowledgement
This message is sent to the client once the log on request has been processed and the client's credentials have been authenticated.
The LogOff message will be sent by the client when they wish to terminate the session gracefully. When the client logs off or Metro determines that the connection has been terminated in any way, all orders and quotes still in the market will be canceled.
