re: softsys vps review

Christophe -

Thanks for the info, softsys looks like one of the cheaper solutions for running an IB/NT automated setup.
I'm trying them also, and have a couple of questions for you-
1. Do you find that installing SW, or running windowsUpdate is super slow?
(after installing .net 3.5, it needed ~130 updates, and that took overnight for me)

2. Can you give details on running NT with IBgateway, vs with TWS?
I saw this info, which is old: IB Gateway - NinjaTrader Support Forum
Maybe you have a newer solution, which I've not yet seen?

3. Did you see any slowdowns during the trading day, or does the vps seem to have equal speed all the time?

4. Do you use VPN or anything to secure the RDP connection to the vps? I'm not sure about the security of just a plain RDP connection over the internet.

Thanks again for your post.
