Interesting problem with IB connection

Discussion in 'Retail Brokers' started by Lawrence Chan, May 19, 2006.

  1. We've got multiple computers here login into IB, each with their individual accounts.

    One of the connections just keep stalling (showing purple grid every 5 to 10 mins and stay that way for 5 to 10 mins). Thus that particular account cannot place orders reliably while the other ones in the same network can.

    Last week, it was a different account on another computer that had this problem.

    Anyone know why? Maybe some form of workaround?

    Different IB accounts log into different servers. Maybe that server was having issues that day.
  4. Thanks - never thought of that.
