This small program will save you one minute every time you log onto the Interactive
Brokers web site.
No more looking for the code card, reading the small letters, and typing your
user name, password, and code characters onto the screen.
Isn't that worth $10?
This program lets you quickly log on to the Interactive
Brokers web site
Upon clicking the starting icon, your user name and password are already
Two numbers are displayed by IBC. Type those into the two fields in our program. Then
A field is displayed with six characters. Copy and paste this into the IBC web field
and click "Enter". You are then logged on.
The program will end and close 20 seconds after the "GO" click.
If you don't want your user name or password to be displayed, do not put them in the
text file, "IBCLOG.txt". Put "xxx" instead.
To get started using the program, you must create a text file named
"IBCLOG.txt" that holds your logon codes from the wallet card sent to you by IB.
The first two lines of the file are your user name and password. If you don't want them
displayed on the screen, type in "xxx" for each. Then type in a list of the
three digit characters from your IBC card.
A faster way to make the text file is by scanning your card to a file and cutting and
pasting the characters to the text file.
When the file is complete, save it and run our program. Optionally, you may
encrypt the list file by clicking "Encrypt" in the help window "?".
This will produce a second text file encrypted, named "IBCLOG2.txt". You may
delete the first text file or copy it to somewhere else. If you don't want to use the
encryption option, just don't make the second text file.
The encryption is not perfect but it will stop almost all snoopers. Your sensitive
files and programs should be on an encrypted area of your hard disk drive anyway.
There is no connection to the internet. The program is not installed, it is stand-alone
so it can not affect your computer.
If you want to place an icon on your screen to run the program, right-click the screen
(desktop). Click New, Shortcut, find the location of the program IBCLOG.EXE and click Next
