Rithmic Connection takes forever to connect

Hi there, It is taking Rithmic many many many minutes to connect. I’ve tried multiple servers. Sometimes it does eventually connect. Sometimes it fails out.
I’m accessing with a demo account. I’m in Africa, but have 35Mbps average connection speed here.
Can you let me know what to do?

Hello @aaronnicholson,

Thanks for your question and welcome to the community forum.

Are you currently connected to any other platform while simultaneously trying to connect on Optimus Flow?

Rithmic may take a few seconds to connect on average, but it does not typically take more than 10 seconds.

I would suggest trying your Rithmic demo on Rithmic’s own platform and see if it takes the same amount of time to connect, if it does, we can likely determine the issue is coming from your PC:

Please try R Trader from the link above, set the System field to Rithmic Paper Trading Server and let us know what happens.
