Impossible to connect

Postby waveslider » 22 Jul 2012

Everything was running smoothly, all of a sudden today I am getting the message - impossible to connect - in quote manager. Likewise I cannot connect to any broker (Rithmic or PATS) in charting/automation. I have tried restarting computer, and running MC64 as an administrator.
Any other suggestions?
I recently installed dropbox on this computer, that is the only system change.

Have you tried to Ping the broker?

I can connect to the broker on their stand alone platform. This seems to be a MC thing, since I can't connect to either Rithmic or PATS

Using MC32 I can see positions but cannot automate.

Weird stuff going on - I un-installed dropbox and it is working again, at least the MC32 is - I've not yet tried MC64
