Cannot login to live IB account

After all the deployment steps, quantrocket don’t connect to my IB account (Live).
for information:

  • This issue occurs only with the live account (i.e. successful connection to the paper account).
  • I opted out of the SLS.

I tried the following (unsuccessful):

  • quantrocket launchpad stop --wait
  • quantrocket launchpad start --wait
  • docker-compose -p quantrocket up -d --force-recreate ibg1

Any similar experience?
what the error message might mean? or debug quantrocket in similar situation?
I am very new to quantrocket, and I feel blocked with no clue on what to do to debug. Any help and guidance would be very appreciated.

I get the following message:

The first thing I would try is to open the IB Gateway GUI and see if it is displaying any error messages:

thanks Brian for the feedback.
I did check the IB Gateway GUI, and this is what it shows:

which is different from what I see for the paper account which connects successfully below:

Are the menus responsive when you click them on the live account?

Things to try:

  • Edit your Compose file to use quantrocket/ibg:972.0 (previous version of IB Gateway), redeploy, and see if you get the same results.
  • Are you able to log into Trader Workstation with the live account and everything works okay?

It’s hard to see why the live and paper account would have different outcomes…

Also, unless you’re ready to do live trading, you don’t really need your live account yet. You can share your market data permissions with your paper account and use your paper account.

the change to “quantrocket/ibg:972.0” made it work! now I have both accounts connected (live and paper).
though it sounds a bit weird why the live account would work only with the 972 version of IB Gateway.

Thank you very much Brian for your help !

I was able to replicate the live vs paper login issue in 973.0. This has been fixed in quantrocket/ibg:973.1.
