Install MT4 on VPS step by step
Although the previous paragraph explains the installation of MT4 on VPS quite extensively, let us try and dig even deeper and make sure that all of the possible questions are answered.
There are exactly 3 steps that we need to go through, so it is pretty simple. The steps are:
- Registering with the broker
- Opening the Remote Desktop Connection
- Downloading MT4
Let us begin.
Step 1: Registering with the broker
The VPS for MT4 usually comes directly from the broker. Some brokers have some don’t, so it is usually a good idea to check before choosing one.
If they have it though, all it takes to get one is registering with the usual email and phone number. Once this is done, you will be emailed the IP address and password for your VPS.
Remember, the IP address is usually just 8 numbers that cannot be changed, while the password is usually “administrator” that can be changed.
Step 2: Open the Remote Desktop Connection
Once you have this information, it is time to open up the Remote Desktop Connection or RDC for short.
In order to do this, go to your Start menu by either clicking the Windows icon at the bottom-left corner of your screen or press the Windows key on your keyboard. In order to get VPS on MT4, we require a remote desktop or a completely new device and the RDC is exactly what we are looking for.
Type “remote” in the search tool of the Start menu and you should get the RDC as your first result. It has an icon of a monitor with these symbols “>” “<”.
Once you click it you will see two fields that you can write in. They’re called “Computer” and “User name”.
All you need to do is put the IP address in the “Computer” field, and your password in the “User name” field.
Once that’s done, you click “Connect” and that’s it, you are now on a Remote Desktop or a Virtual Device.
Step 3: Download & Install MT4
The RDC looks exactly like a Windows desktop without any applications. In order to install MT4 on VPS here we will need an internet connection, so make sure you have it. If you already do, then open the “Microsoft Edge” web browser, go to your broker’s website and download the MT4 software.
It will most likely go to the “downloads” folder. Find it and simply install MT4. Once done, all that is left to do is log into your trading account.
That is it. You are now trading on MT4 through VPS.
