    Appreciated Dev. Team,

    I hope you understand the urgency to find a compatible Interactive brokers TWS version to work with Ninjatrader 7. This last version, IB 978.2c would be "desuported" by January 10, 2022.
    The Ninjatrader 7 community using Interactive brokers platform is still big. Please take steps to solve this well-known problem. I'm sure that you already have experience solving this recurrent issue.

    Thanks for your help. Looking forward

      For any support member, just in case this could be possible.

      I've received the reason why IB is updating the last TWS compatible version with Ninjatrader7. Here is the message, just in case could be a minor adjustment for you.

      MESSAGE
      "
      Please Upgrade Trader Workstation (TWS)
      Dear Client,


      We are contacting you because you or one of your sub-accounts has logged in to our systems during the past 7 days using an older version of the Trader Workstation that is still not patched against a global vulnerability in Apache's Log4j software library, commonly known as “Log4Shell".

      To secure your Trader Workstation environment, it is important for you to download and install the latest "TWS Latest" version of Trader Workstation. Step by step instructions for this install can be found in the FAQ.

      Due to the high risk nature of the vulnerability, we will discontinue operation of non-upgraded TWS installs on Wednesday, December 29.

      For specifics on the vulnerability, please see the Knowledge Base.

      It is our policy to protect client accounts from cyber-attacks, and we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

      Interactive Brokers

        We have begun internally testing the latest versions of TWS without the Log4j vulnerability for full compatibility with NinjaTrader 8 before the cutoff date Interactive Brokers has imposed. No solution for NinjaTrader 7 is planned.

          Here is the latest news from Interactive Brokers on supported versions in general and more specifically what has been done to eliminate the log4j vulnerability in their software:

          TWS version 981.3g will continue to be supported for the foreseeable future, with no hard cutoff or forced deprecation currently planned. At the moment, on March 1, 2022, Interactive Brokers intends to promote a newer version in the 10.xx range to the “Stable” release, after which 981.3g will become the minimum supported version, and earlier versions such as 972 will no longer be able to authenticate with our backend system.

          Prior to and separate from that cutoff, we are also enforcing the use of the patched versions of 981.3g (current Stable) and 10.12 (current Latest) to mitigate the issues presented by log4j’s vulnerabilities. Cumulatively, this means that the only supported versions of TWS now and going forward will be patched 981.3g and patched Latest releases installed with updated log4j components, so if a client used an older offline installer for, say, 10.10 or some version that was recently the Latest but has since been surpassed, they will need to download and install the updated Latest release, bringing them to TWS 10.12/log4j 2.16. Otherwise, there is no way to deliver the updated log4j components to that client’s installation.
          There is still no plan to confirm or guarantee the compatibility and functionality of TWS/Gateway 983.1g or 10.x with NinjaTrader 7. If you choose to use this configuration, you are doing so at your own risk.

          The ultimate solution is to use NinjaTrader 8. If any NinjaTrader 7 users have any specific questions regarding transitioning to NinjaTrader 8, the first resource I would recommend would be this FAQ page:Also, here is a great place for new users to start which contains many video guides that will help with initial configuration of the platform:Below, you will find links to some FREE publicly available resources to help you become a NinjaTrader power user:Finally, if you have any questions that aren't answered in these resources, please contact us via email at platformsupport[AT]ninjatrader[DOT]com so we may assist you directly.
