IB Connectivity - algo trading

Hi all

I've opened an account with Interactive Brokers and connected through Ninjatrader.
I sit with the common issue that every night you get kicked off without reconnecting.
I think maybe newer versions dont have this issue, but when talking to people at ninjatrader I have to use v 9.73

Just wondering how anyone else overcame this issue.
I've only seen 2 posts regarding TWStart (is this the solution) - dont know the software and it asks for your password

and some have suggested going to IQFeed.
I'm hesitant to move brokers so just wondering what everyone would recommend.

Thank you

When I used NT7/Kinetick API to execute via IB I had one screen login, the one for IB. Somehow that IB log in connected everything and remained connected until I logged off.

I was able to establist that through the expert tech assistance @NinjaTrader open a ticket and request a phone call.
