IB data feed on Mac with Parallels


I am having problems setting up the data feed from Interactive Brokers. I did follow the instructions in the tutorial, but Amibroker still fails to connect to IB. I suspect the problem might be due to the fact that I run IB TWS on Mac while Amibroker is run on the same Mac but under Parallels (to create virtual machine for having Windows on Mac).

Have anybody experienced anything similar? Could it be the reason?

Many thanks,

The answer is that you need to run BOTH AmIBroker AND Windows version on TWS on Parallels.
TWS that is run on MacOS is INVISIBLE to Windows.
