Confirmation IB incomming connection attempt

Postby LRP » 20 Nov 2012

Dear Support

Always when I start MC 8.5.6331 Beta 1 and open a workspace I have to confirm several buttons (see pic) by hand.
As I remember in former versions this was done automatically by MC.
Any suggestion?

(Win 7 Ultimate 32 bit with .net 3.5.1 all up-to-date)

Thank you very much.
LRP

If you add your computer's IP address to the list of 'Trusted IP Addresses' in IB TWS (Edit -> Global Configuration -> API -> Settings), it won't (read: shouldn't) ask anymore if it may accept the incoming connection.

Edit:
To retrieve your IP address (assuming you're on Windows 7), go to Start, type 'cmd' -> Enter. Type 'ipconfig' -> Enter. Look for the address named 'IPv4-address', which should be typed into the IB TWS list of Trusted IP Addresses.

It is recommended to add 127.0.0.1 to Trusted IP Addresses.
