"I just wanted to let u know that your data feed/service is by far the best!!! Your unfiltered tick data is excellent for reading order flow and none of your competitors delivers this quality of data!" - Comment from Peter via Email
"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
"I just wanted to say how happy I am with your service. I was able to download the API docs last week and I was able to replicate Interactive Brokers historical bar queries and realtime bar queries over the weekend. That was about one of the fastest integrations that I've ever done and it works perfectly!!!!" - Comment from Jason via Email
"I started a trial a few weeks back before the market went wild. DTN.IQ didn’t miss anything and beat my other provider. I decided to stay with you because of the great service through all the volatility." - Comment from Mike
"I was with ******* for 4 years at $230 a month, this is a huge savings for me, GOD BLESS YOU PEOPLE," - Comment from T.S. via Email
"Everything is working amazing now. I'm already impressed with the true-tick feed of IQFeed and it's ability to support my 480 symbol layout." - Comment from Tyler via Email
"I'm very glad I switched to IQFeed. It's working perfectly with no lag, even during fast market conditions." - Comment from Andy via Email
"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
"I had always used ******* but for the past 2 weeks have been trying DTN IQFeed. Customer support has been extraordinary. They call just to make sure your problem hasn't recurred." - Comment from Public Forum
"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

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.
