Multiplexor launching

dxfeed-api\lib> java -jar qds-tools.jar multiplexor file:C:\Users\username\Desktop\TimeAndSale[readAs=raw_data,start=20190621-000000-0400,stop=20190621-230000-0400,speed=max] :6666 -c all-se
qds-tools.jar - needed lib
multiplexor - needed command
file:*****\Desktop\TimeAndSale - path to the binary file.
start and stop - timeframe of reading
speed=max - how quick the data will be flowing
:6666 - port to connect

Step 2
