I'm working on a tool to connect to IQFeed, and I've stumbled into an conflict over port numbers. Is it possible to change the port to which IQFeed client binds?

Hello MattR, are you a current API Customer? If so, our Developer Support can work with you on troubleshooting the connection issues that you are having. If you are not an API Customer then to be able to connect your tool directly to IQFeed you will require an API License to do so. You can sign up for the API through this site:

Hi Matt, The default ports are all set in your registry. You can change them in the HKCU\Software\DTN\IQFeed\Startup folder. All of the default port settings are held there.
