I suspect that scottrader and etrader do not allow you to interact  
with their servers directly. You probably need to interact with a DLL  
or some such that may let you talk to a local socket.

Contrast this with the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) that lets you  
receive multicast data over a VPN directly off of their servers, as  
well as send orders via FIX/FAST.

I think you would need to post a bit more detail about the scottrade  
and etrade interfaces that you are working with.
