OFX Settings - Peoples United Bank

I am taking a java course and have been asked to replicate a couple of features of software I like to use. I chose Moneydance and I am working on code that will use the OFX protocol to download transactions from my bank. I am just going to print the downloaded data, so I don't have to worry about the format of the downloaded data.

My bank is Peoples United in Connecticut. I would like to know if anyone can provide the settings necessary (fid, etc) to connect with the bank's ofx server. Thanks for any help that can be provided.

    Hi Kevin, thank you for the reply. I started there but I am thinking there are other settings needed as I could not get the transactions. My advisor reviewed and tested my code with his bank and got it to work, so I am looking around for info on Peoples as they work with Moneydance. Regards, Mike

    Hi Mike,

    Something that you could try considering that you have Moneydance...

    Open Moneydance.
    Open the Console Window.
    Connect to Peoples.
    The Console window will provide the < ORG > and < FID >

    Edit: It looks like you can also glean the url of the OFX server.
