Using IB broker and IQFeed market data at the same time.

I'm trying to use IB as the broker and IQFeed as the historical and live data source. However reading this post

it looks as though it won't work because the RE IQFeed plugin does not do symbol mapping. Is that true?

You can set the IQFeed symbol name separately.  In the "Service Data" tab of the symbol setup, you can set custom data for the different plugins.  The IQFeed plugin will use what you put in the corresponding field (for live or historical data) as the IQFeed symbol name, if there's anything there.

Thanks,
Daniel
