My software is able to connect to retrieve historical data, but cannot connect to quote servers:


I wanted to post here to alert someone at IQFeed.

Is this a planned outage? If so, it would be really great if you could announce it somewhere so that your customers don't spend a couple hours diagnosing the problem, pulling their hair out, etc.

If this is an unplanned outage, can you please investigate? I know it's Easter, but instruments start trading tonight in the overnight sessions, and I want to make sure everything will work.

Hi Matthew,

I also started getting the disconnections around 10 PM Eastern Time on Saturday (April 15). I haven't been able to resolve it as of yet on my end and haven't changed anything on my end.

Background Info
I was hoping it would be working better this morning, but it isn't. I'm using the TCP/IP connection and receive the proper S,KEYOK<LF> response after connecting but after about 30 seconds, I get a disconnection and then the system reconnects. Historical requests seem to normally go through fine, but they sometimes get aborted as well.

So . . . it looks like something has changed on the IQFeed side of things.

I've been connected for 12 minutes without a disconnect so far, so whatever you are doing is helping.

I've been connected for over an hour without a disconnect, so from my viewpoint, the problem has been solved.

Thanks Jay et al!
