I've been reading about how IQFeed can run reliably under Wine-Stable, so I've been testing it out for the past 2 days. Below is a description of the issue I'm facing, any help would be highly appreciated!

ISSUE:
- After installing IQClient under Wine, I opened IQLinkLauncher.exe, entered my username and password on the pop-up box.
- I ran a simple Python script to download historical data but it said IQFeed is not connected.
- I then ran Diagnostic.exe. Out of 10 times I click on the 'Test' button, I only succeeded once or twice in getting data but in those rare occasions, after the initial batch of data is received, the connection fails again.
- Thinking of debugging the issue, I clicked on the 'Connectivity' tab, which says:
=======
login.interquote.com
Trace route to 66.112.148.213
Hop Min RTT Avg RTT Max RTT IP
Could not get a valid ICMP handle
=======
- To confirm that there is nothing wrong with my internet, I re-ran the above using the IQLinkLauncher installed on my host Win8.1 and everything was fine. The connection was very stable and never needed a re-login. I really have no idea what is wrong.


My setup:
(1) Debian Jessie 64-bit Virtualbox VM running on Win 8.1 host

Steps I took for Debian VM:
(1) Installed Wine (NOT: Wine-Development) based on the instructions here: https://wiki.debian.org/Wine. I started from Step 1, then step 2: Standard installation
(2) Ran 'winecfg'
(3) Installed iqfeed_client_6_0_0_5.exe (in the process, it installed vcredist_x86_2012u4) in Wine

I think 6.0.0.5 has some buffering/incomplete-record issues when running multiple symbols. Try the latest which is 6.0.1.1, I believe.

Try building your VM with Stretch.

Although describing a container build, the same wine configuration can be used in a regular VM (you may need to copy and paste the link rather than clicking on it):

There might be an issue with the news service. If so, see the following for a fix:

http://blog.raymond.burkholder.net/index.php?/archives/747-DTNIQFeed-Gecko-Problem-in-Wine-from-WineHQ.html

To get IQConnect 'locked in', I run the SnapQuote application twice. The first time starts IQConnect, and the second time actually makes a connection after choosing a symbol. I then close the first SnapQuote application.
