I'm confused about how to receive streaming news via TCP/IP.

My app currently processes streaming Level I data received over port 5009. If I want streaming news as well, do I simply send the S,NEWSON command over the same port, or do I need a second winsock object for port 60018. Per the S,IP message I receive, the news server uses port 60018.

My platform is Microsoft Access, and I have a Market Scan form with an ActiveX winsock control on it. I use that control to receive streaming Level I data over port 5009. As messages are received, I pump them through my VBA message processor. My goal is to get streaming news coming in as well, and pump that through the same message processor. Obviously if I get a "N" message, I'd handle it differently than the "Q" messages I currently process. Can I do this?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. John.

You do not need a connection to 60018 but you will need a connection to 9100.

When you turn on news via the S,NEWSON command, you will start receiving news headlines in the streaming feed. Each news headline contains a id that you can then use to request the full story from the lookup port (9100).
