I use the IQFeed client together with NinjaTrader. Everything worked fine for a long time but now, IQFeed requires entering the user name each time I want to connect. Attached a picture with the login screen I see each time I need to connect.

From the "-password" entry in the username field, it looks like whatever method you're using to connect isn't sending the connection string correctly. Have you changed anything recently? Versions of Ninja Trader, or any settings in the IQFeed apps? Also, have you asked this question to NinjaTrader support? They may have more insight into the problem.
(EDITED TO ADD: I see you've already worked with our customer support about this. They resolved your question via these instructions:)
On the Connections window, under Properties, enter “IQFeed” (or use the default name) in the Connection name field. Check the box for Connect on Startup if you wish to have IQFeed start when you launch NinjaTrader 8. Type your IQFeed user ID and password into the respective User name and Password fields. Do not check the box for Use back adjusted data. Click on Apply to save your IQFeed login credentials with NinjaTrader 8.
Then click OK to complete the configuration setup.
