"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
"I ran your IQFeed DDE vs. my broker vs. a level II window for some slow-moving options. I would see the level II quote change, then your feed update instantaneously. My broker's DDE, however, would take as much as 30 seconds to update. I am not chasing milliseconds, but half a minute is unacceptable." - Comment from Rob
"I'm very glad I switched to IQFeed. It's working perfectly with no lag, even during fast market conditions." - Comment from Andy via Email

"I am keeping IQFeed, much better reliabilty than *******. I may refer a few other people in the office to switch as well." - Comment from Don
"Boy, probably spent a thousand hours trying to get ******* API to work right. And now two hours to have something running with IQFeed. Hmmm, guess I was pretty stupid to fight rather than switch all this time. And have gotten more customer service from you guys already than total from them… in five years." - Comment from Jim
"As a past ******* customer(and not a happy one), IQ Feed by DTN is a much better and cheaper product with great customer support. I have had no problems at all since switching over." - Comment from Public Forum

Previous versions of IQFeed did not decrement the connection count (can't vouch for any internal code/resources) within the IQ Connection Manager once a TCP/IP-based application disconnected from it. There's no real damage done unless ~2000 connections are made. At this point, the IQ Connection Monitor does the equivalent of a Dr Watson.

Unfortunately it looks like this is still hanging around in 2.3.

I've written plenty of code to try to catch IQFeed crashes and react properly. One precaution is to make a new local TCP connection for each distinct request. If the connection fails, something is wrong. I never assume a port opened much earlier is still running and available for use. The result is many connections/disconnections. This shouldn't be an issue for DTN since these connections are all internal to my PC.

Advice?
