"I ran your IQFeed DDE vs. my broker vs. a level II window for some slow-moving options. I would see the level II quote change, then your feed update instantaneously. My broker's DDE, however, would take as much as 30 seconds to update. I am not chasing milliseconds, but half a minute is unacceptable." - Comment from Rob

I was not sure which forum to pick for this question/comment, so I apologize if this is the wrong one.

I am trying trying to get IQFeed to work from behind a corporate firewall that I do not control.
I have successfully used SSH tunnelling in the past but am having trouble finding all the hostnames, ips, and ports used in establishing and running a IQFeed Session.

Is there information on how the IQFeed client tries to login and establish connectivity?

Has anyone else out there done this?

IQFeed client connects to our servers via TCP over ports 60000-60050. The domains you need to have open would be,, and The IPs currently in use (and subject to change without notice) are 207.252.121.x and 66.112.148.x.

To my knowledge, there is no way to configure a SSH tunnel to make this work since our client app is what talks to the servers and it is coded to use the above configuration.
