What is IBStarter

IBStarter is a tool on top of IBController to start Interactive Brokers TWS or gatway with one double click and to keep them running, if required. Account credentials are stored encrypted. You can manage multiple startup configurations, each with its own java-, TWS- or gateway version, its own account credentials and other startup parameters.


IBStarter just makes the usage of IBController more convinient and allows to create startup configurations very quickly. You can create a shortcuts to configuration on desktop in order to start your desired configuration (Paper-, live- or demo account for account A,B,C…)


IBStarter is free and comes without any adware or advertising.
