Multiple concurrent logins to a single InteractiveBrokers account

I asked IB if this was possible and they said no, but it just doesn't seem like the right answer.

Has anyone found a way to have multiple concurrent logins to the same IB username/account? In my particular case I want to have both mobileTWS for Android running while also having IB Gateway (TWS) running on my workstation, on the same account.

Right now I am asked to log out because it's only supporting 1 concurrent login. This causes a lot of problems in Sierra Chart when it is logged out and doesn't see a fill, logging it as an external fill and screwing up statistics.


Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
