    Connecting to IB

    When I goto File/Connect/Interactive Brokers Ninja doesn't connect. It says "Connecting - Interactive Brokers". It won't allow me to disconnect since the choice is grayed out. This just started today.

    My TWS version is 927.7. I've shut down TWS and Ninja and had no change.

    Thanks

            Hi Chris,

            I'm with IB and had the same issues connecting and have since upgraded and connecting now works fine..however.

            Sometimes now I go to disconnect, and it does disconnect from IB (TWS) but the Control panel is still 'green' and still says I am connected.

            I again choose File >> Disconnect, and everything is grayed out so I cannot do anything..yet it still states in lower-left on Control Panel than I am connect to IB??

            TWS Build = 933.5 Nov 26, 2012

                Yeah I can't downgrade because of more important issues.

                Why do I have to repair the DB?

                Beside, if I could disconnect as per below I would not be writing this..lol . I mean I can 'actually' disconnect, but the control panel still says I'm connect. Any more catches for me?

                I assume you mean just ensure I'm disconnected regardless of what the Cont-P says.

                  Hello Steve R,

                  The 927.7 build of TWS is the only build which NinjaTrader is designed to work with. What other important issues are you referring to?

                  Repairing the DB should help to address the connection status issue you'd mentioned, though this too likely relates to the version of TWS used at this time. If you're unable to disconnect in full currently, restart NinjaTrader and run this repair before connecting

                    Good stuff re: reason for DB repair.

                    I'll live with the rest since I can't go back to 927.7 TWS build and sooner or later NT will be compatible with the current version of TWS, I'm assuming ;-)

                    And while we're chatting about it I do have another issue which I also live with and that is that when/if IB's TWS shuts down with NT still connected, I cannot get a full proper re-connection with TWS until after I shut NT completely down..then it works as per normal. There's no way to just fire TWS back up and hen have NT re-connect afterwards without it having to first closing NT.

                    What happens if I don't is, NT will reconnect, load a couple of charts and then hang....when it does this is says "Saving" in the control panel - lower right area, but no matter how long I let it sit there it stays in that state with most of the charts not loaded and "Saving" still in the lower right area of Cont-P.

                    Basically I know this going into it so if I get a forced shut-down of TWS I will just close NT and then open it again. Every once in a while I try it to see if it would work otherwise, but it hasn't yet.

                      Connection Loop

                      Hello,

                      I have the same kind of problem: I can`t connect NT with TWS. I have installed TWS 927.7, NT7 7.0.1000.11. It doesn't make any difference what I do:

                      If I start NT, and go to File>connect, TWS opens ok, but NT keeps trying the connection in a loop. If I open TWS first, when I open NT afterwards an try to connect, a message says that there is another session with TWS already open and that I must close that session and open the new one. When done, again the loop. I do not know what to do (all adjustments have been made "to the letter": repair DB, ports, options in TWS API, etc.)
