IB's TWS and ipconfig?

    i downloaded the new version of TWS last week. however, when it comes up now my firewall asks if i want to allow ipconfig each time. i believe that ipconfig can renew/release the IP address of my pc...

    so my question is:

    -> does anyone else have this happen?
    -> if so, why?

    if i deny it, i can still get through to IB, but i'm curious about this.

    thanks for any info...
  2. I have seen some code that parses the output from ipconfig to get the ipaddress
