Hi guys, I was looking at the Create IB Trader Workstation connection page and I was testing it out.
I tried to connect with:
ib = ibtws('',7496)
but it showed an error:
Undefined function or variable 'ibtws'.
Then I tried:
which -all ibtws
and this error came up:
'ibtws' not found.
I have the trading toolbox installed.
Any ideas?
Thanks in advance.

The Trading Toolbox's IB connector is based on ActiveX and is therefore only available on Windows, not Mac or Linux. So if you happen to run Matlab on Mac or Linux you'll need to use a different connector (for example, my IB-Matlab connector which uses Java instead of ActiveX, and runs on all platforms that run Matlab).
