NT7 isn't auto-reconnecting on a connection drop. It just shows Zen Fire disconnected and red status. If I manually disconnect/reconnect, it is fine.

This is unacceptable to me because the entire reason I am running NT7 is to record GomRecorder data and share it with Elite ( see other thread), which cannot be backfilled so the connection must be always on.

Can this be changed by C# ninjascript? I can run a 'strategy' and just let it monitor the connection status and force a reconnect since NT7 won't?

I am rusty when it comes to NT, anyone help with this?

wasnt there an auto-connect on startup option in NT7 ?
but i dont know where.
maybe this activates also reconnections.

also i know that MXA.. has some tools for to check for connection loss or so.
check his threads.

Mine will reconnect any time the router reestablished a connection to the internet and plays a sound file.

But as @max-td suggests you might have to set connect on Start Up for this to work:

Under Control Center>Tools>Account Connection> ZenFire (or what you named it) Click Change, Next. Click on connect on startup. See Pict.

Check the variables mentioned on this page

NinjaTrader Version 7

If they're OK, and trace is not telling you about failed retries, it sounds like a report bug to Ninja situation.

Just curious, when the connection is lost, the strategy continues running, nes pas ? Seems like it must be, otherwise why have an OnConnectionStatus method ?

I know that you can't start a strategy w/o a connection, but not sure what happens when you the connection (is it still enabled, etc).
