    IB Gateway multiple connections on NT8

    Hello,

    I've been using multiple TWS connections on NT7.

    http://ninjatrader.com/support/forum...ad.php?t=57139
    http://ninjatrader.com/support/forum...ad.php?t=49734

    And I'm trying to test multiple IB Gateway(954) connections on NT8(8008) by changing Socket Port #(e.g. 4002) but the port 4001 seems to be the only port I can use for IB Gateway.

    Would it be possible to use multiple IB Gateway connections on NT8?

    Thank you

    Hello tradertakeo,

    Thanks for the post.

    I have tested multiple connections of IB on NinjaTrader 8 using the IB Gateway and was successful. I kept one connection on port 4001 and ensured it matched in NT8 and set the second connection to port 4002 and matched it in NT8 and connected to both successfully. Can you try it with these settings and confirm if it is successful or not?

    I look forward to your reply.

      Not entirely sure why you said you can only seem to use port 4001... if you came to this conclusion because of that the connection guide says, that is just the default port and you can use whichever port you want, just as long as they match.

      Just as Patrick did, I also just ran a number of tests, and did not have any issues as long as each account configurations in both Gateway and NinjaTrader had unique ports.

      Please let us know what errors (if any) you get when you try to connect with a unique configuration of your IB accounts in gateway..

        Hello Patrick, Matthew,

        I have three main accounts and the one has five sub accounts. I found out that I was not able to connect to a main account with sub accounts.

        4001: Main account A:

        4002: Main account B:
        - Sub account C
        - Sub account D
        - Sub account E
        - Sub account F
        - Sub account G

        4003: Main account H

          Hello Patrick, Matthew,

          Are you asking IB for demo sub accounts and looking into this and the another issue related to IB sub account?
