I’m trying to connect IB’s TWS datafeed to AB 32-bit, and followed the plugin’s setup instructions without success.
As you can see from the screencap, AB connects to IB’s API but no data displays. Any idea on what I need to change would be gratefully appreciated.

@Jose it works perfectly here. I use it every day.
In case you are not using USA stocks symbols did you fill your database with IB specific tickers?
See this How to find the correct IB symbols using TWS
(Your screenshot says that probably your database is empty - in such a case you need to provide/import a list of tickers that you want to use)
It is working perfectly fine on your system, but you simply just need to ADD at least one symbol,
Symbol->New menu, type say AAPL or GOOG press enter and it will backfill the data.

Many thanks, Tomasz and Beppe - that’s what it was.
Unfortunately IB refuses to export futures data. Given that I pay IB $180/m for just the Treasurys and Energy live data, one would think that it wouldn’t be a problem.
