Paper trading from local machine

Hey QC,

I would like to set up a local version of LEAN to run an algo on my IB paper trading account (just for some fun). 

Is it currently possible to use Interactive Brokers as a live data source using LEAN locally? I'm trying to figure out what the needed components are for this experiment. I realise that live data from QC would probably be the best option so I might end up just doing that.

Any tips would be awesome!

Thanks!

Thanks Michael. That post (which I didn't find earlier) answered my question and more!
