I have a problem:

my broker has more than one server and therefore in the lower right corner of metatrader4 where you can click and choose a server from available servers I have more than one option to choose,

and because my vps is in UK I need to select a server which has the lowest latency to my vps.

But each time I select that server which has a better speed, MT4 after some time automatically switches to another server from that list! Always it switches to the first server in the list of servers!!!!

How can I solve this?

How can I tell MT4 to always use the one server that I have chosen???


This is vital for me.

Please help.

You can't. Best server is selected automatically.

Not sure for MT4 as I can't find any official information. But I suppose it's the same as MT5 :

When connecting the best access point is chosen (the least server load and the best quality of connection).
