"Previously I was using *******. IQFeed is WAY more economical, and for my charting needs is just as good, if not better." - Comment from Public Forum Post
"Everything is working great with the API. I love it." - Comment from Calvin
"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
"If someone needs the best quality data and backfill beyond what their broker provides at a rate that is the best in the industry, I highly recommend IQFeed." - Comment from Josh via Public Forum

"DTN has never given me problems. It is incredibly stable. In fact I've occasionally lost the data feed from Interactive Brokers, but still been able to trade because I'm getting good data from DTN." - Comment from Leighton

Due to extremely high market volume, we will be disabling equity and index option data on our x.x.156.x server farm in order to alleviate delay problems being seen. If you need equity and index options data, please contact support at 800-779-7299, on our website via RT Chat or via email. They will give you instructions on modifying your host file to force a connection to the new servers on the x.x.148.x server farm which will still have options data.

This action is only temporarily and will be needed until we release our new server code to the x.x.156.x server farm.

Can I get instructions on how to connect to 156 farm only? 148 servers have been a pain in my A$$ due to flakey ISP between me & you.

Hi Ned,

Add an entry for into your HOSTS file with any of the 156 farm login servers. You can get a list of the available servers by running 'nslookup' (which returns a list of 7 servers at the moment).

Hi Neil,

For option traders, we have no choice but to use 148 farm, since DTN IQFeed turned off option feed from 156.

Any chance of turning back on the option feeds on the 156?

I imagine there are a # of us in the same boat as me: needing to use the 156 servers while incompatibilities with the 148s are worked out but still needing options data in the meantime.
