Global Sybmol Settings when SC is client

When SC is a client is it possible to have the global symbol settings updated by the server?

I am currently receiving SECURITY_DEFINITION_FOR_SYMBOL_REQUEST and responding to that but nothing appears in the global symbol settings.
Also, when I press "Update From Server", I don't get SECURITY_DEFINITION_FOR_SYMBOL_REQUEST event.

My question is whether this is supported,supposed to work and if there is any documentation on this?

Just to see I understand - the idea is that when we have logon sequence we send in SECURITY_DEFINITION_RESPONSE for all the symbols we want to support.

1. If we set symbol X, then user makes changes to X and we do this again - I'm assuming that user's changes will get overriden
2. Just confirming that Update From Server button is not supported with DTC

Can you confirm above understanding?

1. Yes this is correct.

2. No it is not supported.

You can also supply a GlobalSymbolSettings.XML file that a user can use with all of the symbols for the service. There are also certain symbol settings fields which could be used to utilize the symbol searching/retrieving capability on the Find Symbol window.
