Connecting to multiple IB accounts

Postby damageboy » 04 Jun 2007

I want to configure MC to connect to different instances of IB TWS so that I could get more than the 100 symbols that IB allows for from one TWS application.

I've tried to clone the IB data source from the data sources menu however I can't get it to use a different ip/port pair.

When ever I change the IP/port for one of the IB data sources it changes the IP/port for the other as well....

Any ideas on how to get this done?

Can anyone from MC support comment on this problem and try to answer if/will it be fixed (hopefully during the 2.1 beta...)?

I will re-iterate the problem, when the IB data source is cloned in the data sources list, it still shared configuration with the "original" IB data source.

This prevents me from connecting MC to two different instanced of IB running on different ports/machines.

I would also like to see this feature implemented.

So far it is not possible to clone IB but in the future this feature will be implemented.
