OTCnet Local Bridge (OLB) Information and Resources


The OLB is an application that must be installed on all workstations performing check capture, check processing, and terminal configuration operations. The OLB removes the OTCnet application’s dependency on the Java browser plug-in. If the OLB is not installed on your workstations, it will impact your ability to process checks properly. The OLB application is downloaded by Check Capture Administrators within OTCnet. For assistance with this process, see resources below.

OLB Installation Resources:


  • OLB Configuration and Setup Guide PDF: Provides step-by-step instruction on how to complete the OLB Setup, enabling terminals to connect to the OTCnet Online Application without Java Applets.
  • OTCnet Training Website: Please navigate to the OTCnet Training Website for Printable Job Aids and simulations for downloading, installing, and starting the OLB (Modules 2.1, 6.4, 6.5, 6.6).
