help! - NT8 cannot establish proper connection

Greetings traders!

i am new to brussels and have recently installed ninjatrader8.
I have an internet connection from proximus and wanted to start trading trough oneup trader.
the problem i have is that when i try to connect i get an amber light instead of green and the data feed never comes through.

Tracing route to hds-us-nt-001.ninjatrader.com [208.48.16.146]
over a maximum of 30 hops:

2 141 ms 208 ms 198 ms 1.192-130-109.adsl-dyn.isp.belgacom.be [109.130.192.1]
3 8 ms 8 ms 8 ms ae-91-200.iarstr2.isp.belgacom.be [91.183.241.196]
4 9 ms 8 ms 8 ms ae-22-1000.ibrstr6.isp.belgacom.be [91.183.246.110]
5 9 ms 9 ms 8 ms 6-1-1.bear1.brussels1.level3.net [212.3.232.41]
6 * * * Request timed out.
7 102 ms 102 ms 102 ms cqg-inc.ear4.chicago2.level3.net [4.15.85.194]
8 102 ms 102 ms 102 ms 208.48.16.146

From what i understand the request times-out at a Level 3 server in Belgium, passes through but for some reason the data feed doesn't reach back the platform.

I have talked to OneUp Trader support and they validated the account as working ok. I then contacted NT support where they said that this should be resolved by the ISP provider and they as well validated the account on their side. After speaking with Proximus support line they said it is beyond their support level and that i should write on their support forum.... i did, but yeah, they couldn't help either.

Writing here in the hopes that someone might've experienced the same issue and would be able to help...

Thank you!
Chris

Could your firewall configuration or antivirus be blocking the connection?

It is probably a port block from your ISP.
You can contact NT to ask which ports they use for NT8 and then check to see if they are open through your provider.

I had that issue at work years ago and it was one of the ports being blocked.
Once it was open, it worked well.

FWIW

No no, sorry for my dear @xplorer and @DavidHP , but there is no problem at all with your tracert and your network is fine.
A request time out on router 6 is not a problem: this router do not reply to ICMP packets but do its job. If there were a problem here you won't see router 7 and the final destination.

See what I see on one of my machines: router 2 is showing this timed out but the communication can be established:
PS C:\Users\Administrator> tracert -d 208.48.16.146

The problem is somewhere else, try use a VPN or a 4G network as a proxy to confirm (but I'm 100% it's not a network/routing problem).

@sam028 has a great suggestion, try a VPN to confirm.

If a port is blocked by a local or ISP router you can still get ping/tracert.

When my office network blocked the ports NT used, I had no issues with ping or tracert to the server but I could not connect to the trade or data server.

Unfortunately, I can't access the emails between the office IT dept and myself to reveal which ports were blocked.
If I remember correctly the port in question was 36973 for NT7.

NT 8 Probably has a different port assignment.

Also, there is a licensing port used by NT as well as a data provider port. If you can find the ports needed you can use this command in a Windows Powershell to test the port being open or closed.
 
Code
Test-NetConnection -ComputerName localhost -Port <PUT NUMBER HERE>
(Using Wireshark is one method to find ports used)

If I am incorrect, sorry for the interruption.

Easier and without installing anything you can see which process is connected to what using the Windows Resource Monitor:
Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).

One other test would be to disable the local firewall, but it should not be the problem.
I don't think the ISP is blocking some ports, this would be extremely unusual.

First of all, thank you all for your replies.

I have disabled both firewall and antivirus and the issue remains.
I believe you are right @sam028 as this might not be a connection issue (though i am not an expert).

as you can see the ports used are not blocked:

i will look into a VPN and see if this solves the problem.

Cheers!
