I see you are stating you are using the IBG on the profile, is that the true IBG out on their servers(FIX)? or the IBG on your desktop(API)? curious to know if their change impacted gateway customers with their own interface and not those using their API with the local IBG or full blown TWS..

IBG on desktop is just water down TWS API... so I wonder what might be different then... I guess I could try IBG desktop as well from two computers... one using MC and another with NT7 ... will give that a try and let you know if I see the same issue...

This post has been selected as an answer to the original posters question Answer

Guys,

IBKR has recently changed the way they distribute RT data. From now on it is not possible to get RT data for both real (live) and papertrading account in case these run on different machine at the same time. This is valid also for API, i.e. MC7 / NT7 etc. connected. It still works in case both live and paper run on the same machine.
It seems this is introduced step by step, started with Nymex / Comex data.
