Thanks for jumping in here. Since asking for help, I've managed to get my IB/TWS/Ninja Trader/Bracket Trader combination up and running reliably. I even did a couple quick trades to test it. All seems well with everything now except I can't seem to make my Thunderbird program connect. It's interesting that SI, and Firefox seem to be connecting okay, but not T-bird.
It says my password is wrong. I set that up in a previous century so I sure don't know what it is. I need to know how to change it to something I can write down and remember. If I can get that working, I'm in business for 2112.
Merry Christmas to you.... and have a great New Year.
