    I am in the process of setting up my IB account. I just downloaded my the stand alone TWS. I use Zone Alarms free edition(3.1.395) firewall.

    My question is:

    In step 9 of TWS set-up, it asks you:
    What should I enter in this field? I am not very computer savvy, but I thought a firewall and a restricted router were different things.

    Any help, would be much appreciated.

    Probably the IP of the router if you have one. I use TWS with Zonealarm and it works fine without any special setup.
  3. i have it, plus a router, and i enter nothing and it works just fine...
