Unable to View Charts or Level 2 Data in WT Sim (Firewall Issues)

If you are unable to view charts on your simulator or get any level 2 data, this usually indicates that there's either a firewall or network issue. First, make sure you are not on an internet connection associated with a school, work, or other public place, as that network might be blocking some connection or data to your computer.

We have found that security settings within a network can block the necessary data ports that the simulator needs to use. Try the steps on this page here to adjust firewall settings.

If you are still having an issue, you can try to go to your firewall settings in your windows settings and make sure that you are not blocking any connections from basegray (this is the simulator software).

To do this:

  1. Search your computer for Windows Defender.
  2. Click on Advanced settings.
  3. Click on Inbound Rules.
  4. Find basegray applications and make sure the rules are set to enabled and allowed. 
  5. If not, you can right click and say Disable Rule.
