"I'm satisfied with IQFeed. It's the most reliable and fastest quote feed I have ever used. Although I'm a resident in China, it's still very fast!" - Comment from Xiaofei
"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
"Version has been working well for me and I appreciate that it is now a much tighter client to work with. I feel I can go to press with my own application and rely on a stable platform" - Comment from David in IA.
"With HUGE volume on AAPL and RIMM for 2 days, everyone in a trading room was whining about freezes, crashes and lag with *******, RealTick, TS and Cyber. InvestorRT with IQFeed was rock solid. I mean SOLID!" - Comment from Public IRC Chat
"I like you guys better than *******...much more stable and a whole lot fewer issues." - Comment from Philip
"I have to tell you though that using the IQFeed API is about the easiest and cleanest I have seen for some time." - Comment from Jim
"Just a thank you for the very helpful and prompt assistance and services. You provided me with noticeably superior service in my setup compared to a couple of other options I had looked at." - Comment from John
"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
"You are much better than lawyers or the phone company because you answer the phone when I call! I just love your customer service." - Comment from Isreal
"Boy, probably spent a thousand hours trying to get ******* API to work right. And now two hours to have something running with IQFeed. Hmmm, guess I was pretty stupid to fight rather than switch all this time. And have gotten more customer service from you guys already than total from them… in five years." - Comment from Jim

Hi - when I initially logon to PhX, the little window that pops up and prompts me for a password lists the default server I'll connect to. I can change to another if I wish, but I usually just go with the default.

After I'm logged on, how can I tell which server I'm connected to? If I don't notice the server name when I logon, I have no way of knowing after I'm connected.

I noticed if I click on the 'logon' icon that's on my main PhX window(at the top), it'll pop up another logon window with a server name in it. However, I don't know if this is my current server or just another server in the rotation list.

Hello AMA, to check which actual server you are connected to within ProphetX you can do so one of two ways. The first is by mousing over the green diamond in the lower right corner of ProphetX this will show what server you are currently connected to. The other way is to go to Help, About ProphetX and look at the Server line. This will also tell you what the IP address of the server you are connected as well.

If you have any other problems or questions please let us know.

Thanks Curtis - I missed the small icons in the lower right where the greenie is...

I had seen the ip address under the Help tab, but I was looking for some kind of server name with 'ProphetX' in it, as that's what shows on the initial logon panel.

Got what I needed
