IB connectivity issue

    This is what I am getting today. I never noticed so many lost connections before today. The datafeed has never stopped working during the lost connections. But my concern is that I can't place or cancel orders when the connectivity between IB and TWS is lost.

    Am I the only one with this problem today with IB?

    I am using ActiveX connection to TWS, and requesting only ESU6 live data. I doubt this would be the cause of the lost connectivity between IB and TWS. I did not have this problem before today. And today happened to be a heavy trading day for ESU6 so far, 11:40 am.

    Just as a FWIW - IB may indeed have a problem - but 90% of the time when I have had connectivity issues with TWS, it was NOT IB. It was my crappy ISP.

    If we don't get a few more (lots more) people with the same problem, I think it would be safe to say it is local to your network. Mine is working fine today.

    Good luck.

    :)

    Battle,

    How did your ISP screw up the connection? I am still having the same problem more or less up to now. The datafeed has been alive all day long, it's just the IB to TWS connection.
