"I "bracket trade" all major news releases and I have not found one lag or glitch with DTN.IQ feed. I am very comfortable with their feed under all typical news conditions (Fed releases, employment numbers, etc)." - Comment from Public Forum
"Interactive Brokers tick data was inconsistent, so I have switched to using DTN exclusively. It is great to no longer have to worry about my datafeed all day long." - Comment from Philippe

"If you are serious about your trading I would not rely on IB data for serious daytrading. Took me a while to justify the cost of IQ Feed and in the end, it's just a 2 point stop on ES. Better safe than sorry" - Comment from Public Forum
"With HUGE volume on AAPL and RIMM for 2 days, everyone in a trading room was whining about freezes, crashes and lag with *******, RealTick, TS and Cyber. InvestorRT with IQFeed was rock solid. I mean SOLID!" - Comment from Public IRC Chat
"I used to have *******, but they are way more money for the same thing. I have had no probs with data from DTN since switching over." - Comment from Public Forum Post
"Just a quick one to say I'm very impressed so far :) The documentation for developers is excellent and I've quickly managed to get an app written to do historical downloads. The system is very robust and pretty quick considering the extent of data that's available. The support guys have been very helpful too, in combination with the forums it's been plain sailing so far!" - Comment from Adam

I'm looking to colocate my trading platform, which uses IQFeed.

Assuming IQ doesn't offer colocation services, where (City, State) are the IQ servers? I'm in Los Angeles, and I've spoken with local colo's, but they concur I need to get my platform closer to the data feed source to improve upon what I already get at home.

Anyone out there already doing this? Any comments (good or bad) on colo providers?

Lastly, any recommendations on remote control software? The product I've been testing (from Funk software) appears to be unhappy with either the IQ data feed, or Interactive Brokers feed, and disconnects me periodically.

TIA

IQ's primary servers are in Omaha, NE. Our failover servers are located in Bellevue, NE.

I can't speak to the colo issue - being in development, I couldn't tell you if we're doing anything remotely similar to that or not. I'm sure somebody else can answer this issue for you.

I'm not sure what you're looking for in remote control software, but I like and use VNC (Google "VNC" to get all the variants) to admin my own and clients' servers, both across the room and across the country. It's not fast enough for serious remote application use, but sufficient for maintenance.

I found the problem some time ago. Turned out to be buggy firmware for my linksys firewall router (BEFSX41 model I think). There is an "unofficial" firmware release available on the net which solved my (and many other peoples) problems with the router doing sontaneous reboots.

Symantec PCAnywhere - It works well. Cost, I think around $250.
GoToMyPC - Have not tried. Has good reviews. Cost?
LogMeIn - I use the free version. I like it. It's free and easy so give it a try. (LogMeIn.com)
