I was able to connect to IB Gateway not too long ago and was able to run my automated strategy successfully. Now I have a VPS so I installed ninjatrader and I was trying to connect to ibgateway but it would not connect for some reason. Whenever I try to connect, it would open up the TWS credentials screen where it asked for username and pw and after I enter my UN and PW it logs off ibgateway and logs on to TWS. What am I doing wrong? Also I just have the Interactive Brokers API Server that shows "connected" on the "purpose" of ibgateway window instead of having 4 different ones, so I didn't have the API Client, Market Data Farm and Historical Data Farm. Those 3 are not showing at all, I know that sometimes they would show not connected but this time they're not there. Please advise. Thanks.

Hi Jio, I use TWSStart to connect IB and Ninjatrader. Note my only connection to these products is as a user. Website: Private Homepage for TWSStart
